We’re not ones to report every single response to a test screening that hits the web. It’s the latest trend in making or breaking comic book movies. However this is one report which piqued our interest.
Last week rumours hit the web that Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and the crew of Ant-Man and The Wasp were heading back for additional photography on the film. Than in itself is not unusual. Most movies have some additional photography that takes place during the editing stage.
Interestingly those rumours pointed to the crew heading back to shoot a new opening for the film.
Now a new rumour reported by Screen Geek points to test audience reactions triggering this new filming. According to the site test audiences reacted poorly to the films opening scene. This scene was reportedly an action sequence which took place in South America.
There is absolutely no reason to take this as a cause for concern. All we can take from this story is that Marvel Studios is doing its best to make Ant-Man and The Wasp the best film it can be.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. The film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Judy Greer, Walton Goggins, Michael Pena, Laurence Fishburne and David Dastmalchian.
The film is directed by Payton Reed from a screenplay by Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari and Paul Rudd. The film hits cinema on July 6, 2018.
