Seen Ant-Man yet? Not bad, huh?

If you haven’t, be aware: here be ***SPOILERS***

Director Peyton Reed has teased a slightly different ending in an interview with CinemaBlend. At the end of the film, with Darren Cross/Yellowjacket seemingly shrinking into the quantum realm, former S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘head of defense’ and HYDRA facilitator Mitchell Carson makes good his escape with a vial of Cross’s version of the size-altering Pym Particles. Reed stated that there was supposed to be a short scene addressing this:

At the end of the movie he gets away and has these Cross particles, and there was a sequence where Ant-Man has an encounter with him. But then for a couple reasons, it felt like maybe we should leave those particles out there. In that original thing, he took [Carson] out and got the particles.

No word yet on when the joys of HYDRA getting its hands on Pym Particles will be addressed. It could be next year’s Captain America: Civil War; it could be Avengers: Infinity Wars (doubtful); or it could be a possible Ant-Man 2. Carson adapting the tech for himself isn’t outside the realms of possibility, given that his comics counterpart is a S.H.I.E.L.D.-trained killer with a shrinking suit of his own. Who knows? We’ll let you know when we do.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
