There will be more of the Quantum Realm on the Blu-Ray for Ant-Man and The Wasp, courtesy of some deleted scenes. Aside from the size-changing abilities, the aspect of the Ant-Man franchise that sets it apart is the use of the Quantum Realm. It has been a staple to the series from the get go. It is heavily tied to Ant-Man's power set, but also played a vital role in how the film ended. With the sequel revolving around rescuing Janet van Dyne, who was trapped in the Quantum Realm for 30 years, it once again was expected to be a big part.
Ant-Man and The Wasp doesn't disappoint in this area as it dives deeper into the Quantum Realm. The mission to save Janet allows for further exploration and explanation of the still rather mysterious realm, but it appears there was actually more at one time scheduled to be included. While those scenes didn't make the final cut, fans will be able to see them on the Blu-Ray.
Collider spoke to Ant-Man and The Wasp director Peyton Reed and asked him how much and what kinds of deleted scenes will be included on the Blu-Ray. The biggest tease that Reed would give is that there's going to be additional Quantum Realm scenes, along with some more from Walton Goggins' Sonny Burch. He said:
"There's stuff that you do that's, you know, well this scene is good but it's a repeated beat of this other thing and this thing is way better, so no one needs to see that version. But yeah there's some good stuff in the Quantum Realm and definitely some stuff with Walton Goggins, there's maybe a little more Quantum Realm stuff that you'll see on the Blu-Ray."
Featuring more of the Quantum Realm could provide for some rather intriguing deleted scenes. Most of the Quantum Realm scenes in the movie deal with the attempted rescue of Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer). It is possible that some of these deleted scenes could show her perspective during key sequences or even what she did during her 30 years. Considering the Quantum Realm looks to be a major piece of the MCU moving forward (and, specifically, with Avengers 4), any additional time spent with the realm could be beneficial.
Reed does say to only expect between five to 10 minutes of deleted scenes on the Blu-Ray too. If multiple Quantum Realm scenes take a majority of this time, then the scenes with Goggins could take up the rest. There's surely a few other scenes that haven't been revealed yet that will be included, along with what is sure to be a great gag and blooper reel.
