Peyton Reed's Ant-Man And The Wasp is not only a wonderful, fun, action-packed blockbuster, but it's also filled with terrific references back to the Marvel Comics source material. For example, Ghost's father is revealed to be Elihas Starr, a.k.a. the classic Avengers villain Egghead, and important characters like Janet van Dyne and Bill Foster are brought to life the first time in fantastic fashion. Both it and its series predecessor are fantastic tributes to the decades of work on the page - but there is still plenty left to explore in future features.
Looking back at the long history of Ant-Man in Marvel Comics, we've put together this list featuring some fantastic material from the original canon - material that has never before been adapted in live-action. Read through our selections, ponder how they could be factored into a trilogy-capper for Ant-Man and Ant-Man And The Wasp, and hits the comments section with your own thoughts.
The Big House
To date, we haven't really seen many of Marvel's famous prisons depicted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Raft made its debut as the underwater facility used to house the Sokovia Accords fugitives in Captain America: Civil War, and Seagate Prison has been featured in a One Shot and in the Marvel Netflix show, but for the most part baddies either wind up dead or brought to locations unknown. One benefit of this is that any narrative set in a prison remains untouched material within the franchise, and the next Ant-Man And The Wasp story could capitalize in a big way with the introduction of The Big House.
If you haven't pieced it together already, The Big House is a nifty prison in the Marvel Universe that is used to contain supervillains... after they've been reduced to insect size. The idea for the clever clink was devised by Hank Pym in the comics, and it could be a cool idea to explore on the big screen. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe it perhaps can be an idea devised and designed by Scott Lang and his X-Con crew - but things go wrong with Ant-Man and Wasp are stuck inside during a jail break. Given Scott's time behind bars it would certainly fit to have the character explore it thematically, and it would be a cool way to adapt some of Marvel's weirder small-scale villains.
