The Wasp made it to the animatics for The Avengers but not the final film. Damn. It was so close. Federic D’Alessandro (who recently shared the Iron Man 3 animatics) was the animatics supervisor for The Avengers, and he just uploaded a few videos of storyboards that didn’t make it into the film. They’re quite the chunk of eye candy. Janet van Dyne only appears as The Wasp for a moment in just one of the videos, but it’s enough to make me smile.
The three other scenes reveal an Iron Man introduction that didn’t happen, a different take on Loki’s escape from S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters in the beginning of the film, and more of that wonderful Loki and Tony Stark exchange in Stark Tower. They all bring something new to the table and would have definitely fit right into the existing film.
Check them all out after the break.
