While we are anxiously awaiting the casting decision for Spider-Man, who just saw candidates test for the role, we may get a reference to the character in the near future.
According to Latino-Review, Ant-Man will feature the first easter eggs from the Spider-Man universe. They are claiming that the current version of the film offers references to both Spider-Man and Oscorp.
The biggest piece of news in the report is that Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) will be trying to sell his Yellowjacket suit, a weaponized version of the Ant-Man suit, to a large ranging group of potential buyers. That list reportedly includes The Ten Rings, Roxxon, and now Oscorp.
Is it possible that maybe even the head of Oscorp, Norman Osborn, could make an appearance? There was a crazy rumor that Matthew McConaughey is being eyed for the role, but that does not seem likely at this point.
This is not the first time that bigger connections to the MCU have been teased for Ant-Man as we recently heard that we may be getting a surprise cameo. Should both of these rumors be true, then Ant-Man has a much bigger connection to the larger universe than many previously believed.
Ant-Man is set to hit theaters July 17, 2015.
