Big Screen Effects: Ant-Man and the Wasp Visual Effects
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is exactly how I like my superhero films – not taking itself seriously. In the film, high tech suits give the superheroes the strength and size of an ant and a wasp, with lots of comic hi-jinx and special effects. Plus, I love Paul Rudd. Watch some behind the scenes videos and read some interviews about the miniature effects were created.
