Korean fans can now expect seeing a lot more of The Wasp.
In case you are a Marvel fan living in Korea, you would have noticed that the upcoming movie Ant-Man and the Wasp was sporting a different title. Its promotional materials called the film Ant-Man 2. This error was soon spotted by the fans who brought it to the attention of the movie’s director Peyton Reed. Apparently, it succeeded.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released with its original title, not Ant-Man 2, The Walt Disney Company Korea declared today. Thank you, @MrPeytonReed. Bless,” stated @AuroraHiss. @Aurora Hiss who happened to be the person who conveyed the issue to Peyton Reed to begin with, and he gave her some props too. “You’re welcome,” Reed said. “And thank YOU.”
Her original post had raised the issue of The Wasp’s name missing from the movie, including a logo released by Disney, Korea on social media.
“@MrPeytonReed, we have a situation here. Disney Korea started to promote Ant-Man and the Wasp as “Ant-Man 2″, which makes no sense at all. We’ve been waiting for her debut for two years, and they just left out her name from her own movie. I don’t get how this is even possible,” @AuroraHiss had written.
That is totally in contradiction to Reed’s earlier comments about Wasp’s role in the movie since the role is not a supporting character.
“It’s something we’re excited about,” Reed told Modern Myth Media. “For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second movie is really about is how they work together, what their personal and professional relationships are like. To show her finally fully formed in this movie is really exciting. We really get to introduce this character into that universe. I mean we’ve introduced the character, but we haven’t seen her with her full power set and everything, so to me she’s not a supporting character in this movie. It’s every bit as much her movie as it is Scott Lang’s.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp releases in cinemas worldwide on July 6.
