    I think a big discussion I'm seeing (one worth discussing here) is whether there is some character hidden in the Microverse as a cameo. I'd almost be tempted to say "no, we're trying too hard" and make the allusion to magic eye books I made above. That being said, Director Peyton Reed said, "I would say just watch out for something, maybe in the corner of the frame, something you might see also reflected in Ant-Man’s helmet."

    I think speculation tends to go in two parts. One is that you see Janet, which would be possible from a story perspective. More interestingly is this theory that the figure we see is "Eternity." For the broader MCU, I think this would make a lot of sense. Eternity is a character who I could see be a big deal in Doctor Strange. More importantly, the use of cosmic entities could open the way for the actual incarnation of Death as Thanos's crush. Certainly, there's a lot of potential there if they have the guts to go down that route.

    So what do people think? Did you see something hidden? Is Peyton Reed messing with us? What are your thoughts?

    I've seen the movie twice and I honestly didn't see anything. There was so much going on that I couldn't pick anything out. I want to believe, though.

    Restrictions on posting things might make this thread very complicated. Any idea where specifically you saw Janet's silhouette?

    Check the third post down.

    http://moviebob.blogspot.com

    Not sure if that's actually it, tho. Others have described seeing things in different parts of the scene.

    Mentioned this in another thread.

    While Ant-Man is continuing to shrink, there is a very big change from shrinking past cells and molecules and atoms, where he enters the scene with the reflecting glass and what not, this moment is also cued with Cassie yelling "Daddy!" just before Scott shrinks into this section. A split second before that, keeping a keen eye out during my 2nd viewing, you can see a woman's silhouette reflected on Scott's helmet.

    I've seen the blog above and that image is somebody reaching way to hard, not what I saw as posted above. It is pretty clear in the film.

    I really hope the sequel is mostly exploring the quantum realm and rescuing Janet. That'd be such a great story to see.

    I like stuff thats explores those kind of things...I hope we eventually get to see Death...dunno how and when but I hope the time and space aspect of the cosmos gets a little explained more.

    Seen the movie twice, both times I didn't catch anything. I'll look once I get it on blu-ray, but I'm sure by then someone will have uncovered the answer.

    Unfortunatly I didn't catch anything. I was just too mesmerized by that scene.

    I saw that pic. It looks like Wasp.

    I was watching very hard during that sequence, and I caught a silhouette above Scott

    obviously, it's just a shadow though, so there's really no way to know if it's Wasp, Death, Eternity, The Ancient One, Strange, or anyone else
    but I def saw it, and my assumption was that it was Wasp, based on the facts of the flashback

    There is a interesting interview with Ant-Man Production VFX Supervisor Jake Morrison at the art of VFX.

    Ant-Man passes through five different, distinct environments – Dust Motes, Virus, Molecules, Kaleidoscope and The Void. Each environment scales by many orders of magnitude so the detail level is completely different at each level.

    Quantum Physicist Spiros Michalakis consulted on the movie. Spiros said that when you reached deeper into reality, everything effectively co-exists – all possible states exist concurrently. This is why they had many Ant-Men blossoming out of a crazy kaleidoscope and folding back in on themselves.

    From the stills it looks like janet (similar to the femsle suit). Would love death, eternity, entropy, and infinity to be more than a mosaic on a floor in the mcu. Would they go that far though? Would the celestials make an appearsnce? I hope so.
