Scott Derrickson's Secret Ant-Man Refference in Doctor Strange
Feb 17, 2017 03:38 PM EST
In the movie Doctor Strange, an Ant-Man reference has been found that many have missed. The secret itself was confirmed by Scott Derrickson, the director of the movie.
Often, many people who watch movies miss something that's in it. The things they miss are sometimes obvious, but then there are times where the things inserted in the movie are unseen even by the franchise's more avid fans. An example of this is the Ant-Man Reference that Scott Derrickson snuck into another one of his movies, "Doctor Strange."
Cinemablend.com claims that this was no accident, and yet many of us wouldn't find it hard to believe since the Marvel cinematic universe likes to link most of its productions together as was sceen in "The Avengers", "Iron Man", and so on. When asked where the Ant-Man reference was, Scott Derrickson, the director of the movie "Doctor Strange", made it subtle yet known, having stated that there have only been two heroes now who have made it to this special location. The location he speaks of, surprisingly, is the "Quantum Realm."
According to Comic Book, this solidifies the connection between the two. While Ant-Man had gone there after disabling the restrictions on his suit and causing him to shrink to dangerously small levels, Doctor Strange had visited the area during the scene where the Ancient One had showed him the possibility of power outside his perception, opening his mind in a sense. While many picked up a lot of references when the movie was first premiered, they were also not particularly certain if the Ant-Man reference was there.
Since Scott Derrickson confirmed the Ant-Man reference he snuck into Doctor Strange, it leaves many possibilties to other Marvel movies in the future, much like the movie Doctor Strange and its premise. This leaves many fans to wonder if it will lead to a connection with the upcoming movie "Ant-Man And The Wasp" aside from its obvious connection to the future movie "The Avengers: Infinity War."
