Axel-In-Charge: Facing the 'Divided' Marvel NOW! Future
Director Peyton Reed began principal photography on Ant-Man just a week ago, and already people are spotting Marvel Universe Easter eggs on the film’s San Francisco set.
Among the latest batch of set photos to pop up at Superhero Hype and elsewhere, one eagle-eyed fan zeroed in on a shot of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang walking past weathered ads for the DayGlo-green Pingo Doce soda seen during Stan Lee’s cameo in The Incredible Hulk (below).
It’s doubtful that the soda plays any role in the film, beyond providing a little background flourish to help establish Ant-Man as part of the same universe as that neglected 2008 movie. Hey, some of us liked The Incredible Hulk; maybe Reed did too.
Arriving July 17, 2015, Ant-Man also stars Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, Wood Harris, John Slattery, Bobby Canavale, Michael Pena, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian, Gregg Turkington and T.I..
