Director Peyton Reed revealed the fantasy artist Mœbius, Heavy Metal magazine, and electron microscope photography inspired the look of Ant-Man’s Quantum Realm in a recent interview with Empire.
We wanted to explore the Quantum Realm. It’s a massive, massive world-building undertaking. It owes in equal part to electron microscope photography, ‘70s and ‘80s Heavy Metal magazine stuff, a lot of my favorite science-fiction-book cover artists, and there’s a little Mœbius in there. Fantastical realism is the vibe.
