We showcased a lot of great products at CES 2018, but one display at the Dell Experience that especially caught the eye of Super Hero fans in attendance were the new costumes from Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp.”
“One of the biggest additions in Ant-Man and The Wasp will be the world’s introduction to Hope van Dyne in her Wasp costume, especially with her now sharing the film’s title,” noted Joseph Aberl of MCU Exchange, a blog focused exclusively on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). “Thanks to one of our own attending CES, we got a great look at the costumes and some artwork.”
While we were excited to have the costumes in our exhibit space at CES, we are even more excited to go to the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” on June 25 in Los Angeles. You can keep up with highlights of the red carpet action on social media by following Dell on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Viewers will also get a chance to see several pieces of Dell technology that play small roles in the film. However, what they might not know is that Dell technology also played a big role behind the scenes, helping to bring some of the film’s visual effects to life.
Artists at the award-winning VFX studio DNEG had access to more than 300 Dell Precision workstations to edit and create the visual effects in the film – bringing the characters and places to life. From the moments of Ant-Man and The Wasp shrinking to an intricate lab scene featuring Ghost phasing in and out of walls – Dell technologies helped make these ideas reality.
Dell EMC PowerEdge R630 rack servers with MD3460 RAIDs, and Dell EMC PowerEdge M1000e blade server enclosures and hundreds of Dell monitors also played a part in providing the massive computer power needed to bring this film to life.
And, you didn’t hear it from us, but it looks like some Dell monitors will share screen time with the movie’s heroes. The new Dell G5 15 Gaming Laptop (right), makes an appearance in pivotal scenes. And fans can also find Luis, Ant-Man’s friend who runs their X-CON security company, carrying the beloved Dell XPS 13 laptop in the film.
Everyone in the U.S. can set their eyes on these laptops and the movie’s titular Super Heroes when Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” hits theaters on July 6. (Australians can see it a day earlier, India has to wait until July 13, and U.K. theatres will get it August 3.)
