With “Avengers: Age of Ultron” out in theaters, Marvel’s focus has shifted towards promoting their next movie: July’s “Ant-Man.” This has included the launch of the film’s official website, which features new insight into the diminutive hero’s debut movie. Once you adjust the website to “human view,” an animated slideshow walks you through the background of the “science” at the heart of the Peyton Reed-directed film.
The site says that the Ant-Man suit was “built by Hank Pym” and “designed to give its wearer extraordinary powers to shrink in size, grow in strength and communicate with ants.” An animation then compares Ant-Man’s height to that of Ultron and a tiger shark at human size, and to a house ant and paperclip at ant size.
Another slide analyzes the helmet and suit itself, stating that they are “powered by the legendary ‘Pym Particles’, which shrink the distance between atoms.” Additionally, the site states that “Dr. Henry Pym originally discovered and isolated a rare group of subatomic particles, which have become known as the ‘Pym Particles’, which could increase or decrease the size and mass of objects or living beings.” This website marks the first time that the film has acknowledged the existence of the particles, which power Ant-Man in the comics.
“Ant-Man” opens on July 17.
