Book Review: Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp: The Art of the Movie

Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp: The Art of the Movie - 01


Marvel Studios is on a roll, no doubt about it. They have their formula for making blockbuster hits. They also have a formula to making fantastic artbooks, which is to pack loads of great art into a thick book. That's what they have done here again.

As with the Marvel artbooks that came before, we get a hardcover and a slipcase again. And as usual, the page numbers has been listed wrongly on Amazon again. There are 288 pages, not 240 pages.

Just like other Marvel artbooks, this is filled with art. Character designs, scene paintings, environment art, interiors, prop designs, schematics, weapons and 3D renders.

There is a lot to see. New costume designs for Ant-man, Wasp, the Quantum Suit, Ghost and Janet. For set and interior designs, they have also included detailed schematics, like top-down-left-right, of the Hank's lab, the Quantum Array and Quantum Tunnel. Schematics include measurements too. That's the level of detail you get. There are of course many illustrated environment artworks.

Highlight of the book is the absurd ridiculous idea of Ant-man. More specifically, the juxtaposition of Ant-man in big and small form in everyday settings. You get the standard artworks of Ant-man riding on ants, insects as usual. The ones I like are the hilarious ones, like small Ant-man standing in front of a squirrel, in the pocket of a wallet, big ants running around the swimming pool, chilling out under a blanket on the sofa, and more. Together with The Wasp, there are double the number of fun and outrageous moments.

This artbook has a serious and light-hearted feel to it. Serious as in the artworks are drawn really beautifully. Light-hearted as in somethings what's drawn can be quite whimsical. It's a really nice artbook for movie fans, concept artists and artbook collectors. Another good one to squeeze beside other Marvel artbooks on the shelf.
