We’ve got quite some time to go before the next Marvel theatrical release, which won’t arrive until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016, and even longer before the Ant-Man sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp makes its way to theaters in 2018. But for now you can tide yourself over with the upcoming Ant-Man home video release, which promises to be packed with extras including behind-the-scenes featurettes, audio commentary, deleted scenes, and more.
Marvel has released a glimpse at the bonus material in the form of a deleted scene/audio commentary combo, revealing an alternate introduction to the wily character of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) that sees him conning Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) at the same time the ex-con is casing Pym’s home. Meanwhile, Rudd and director Peyton Reed offer some insight into why the scene was cut.
Reed is currently gearing up to go to work on the recently announced sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, which joined the studio’s previously announced Phase 3 roster and caused a bit of a shuffle in the scheduling. While no official screenwriter has been announced at this time, Adam McKay recently voiced his interest in returning for the sequel. Michael Douglas also revealed a desire to return to the MCU, which seems like a somewhat necessary step now that Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) is poised to step into the role of a title character.
Check out the Ant-Man Blu-ray deleted scene below. The film also stars Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale and T.I.. Ant-Man arrives on Digital HD and Digital 3D on November 17th, and will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on December 8th.
