Gotta love them casting calls. Seemingly innocent in nature, casting calls often reveal key details about certain scenes that will be filmed for coverage. Just last month, an Avengers 4 casting call surfaced revealing a scene that was set in the 1960’s. And what do you know? A new one from Ant-Man & the Wasp was released teasing an 80’s flashback this time around.
Two things stand out to us. The first one is the year 1987. Canonically, 1987 was the year Jane van Dyne sacrificed herself during one of Hank’s missions. A tie-in comic for the first Ant-Man film also reveals a key S.H.I.E.L.D. mission involving East Berlin and Hank Pym also taking place in the same year. The second interesting bit about that casting call is the seemingly Argentina setting for the scene. If you’ll remember, the classified S.H.I.E.L.D. footage that Darren Cross presented to his investors depicting Ant-Man on a mission seemingly takes place in a South American compound. Even the latest SDCC poster for Ant-Man & the Wasp features a South American looking jungle in the backdrop. We reckon that this casting call pertains to a flashback to that moment in Hank Pym’s life; his early days as Ant-Man and the inciting incident that takes Janet’s life.
