Ant-Man Peyton Reed Avengers

Ant-Man director Peyton Reed confirmed a surprising Avengers easter-egg in the Paul Rudd film.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is crammed full of Easter eggs to other heroes, iconic stories from the comics and other movies. Director Peyton Reed recently answered a fan’s question on Twitter which revealed an Avengers Easter egg in the film. The Easter egg comes shortly after Scott Lang fights Falcon in the Avengers facility that he was stealing a piece of equipment from.

After Scott escapes with the piece of tech they need to pull off the heist later on in the film, Falcon radios in and tells the person on the other end of the radio to not let Steve Rogers find out he was defeated. Director Peyton Reed told a fan online that Falcon was actually speaking to Natasha Romanoff, giving the film another small connection to the Avengers.
