Cinematographer Russell Carpenter previously worked on The Indian in the Cupboard (1995), another film featuring a scaled-down character. Having just finished up a low budget film in India, Carpenter indicated to his agent that he was looking to get back into shooting action movies. Coincidentally as this film was changing directors, Carpenter was brought in by Peyton Reed a week later on the compressed production schedule. In order to define the film's overall look, Carpenter began watching the previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films, beginning with Iron Man (2008). Carpenter really liked the look to Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and ended up using the same LUT (Look Up Table), a colour correcting "preset" used in the final stages of post-production.

Cassie, Ant Man's (Scott Lang) daughter is shown to be 5-6 years old in the film. Lang was sentenced to five years in prison and is shown getting out at the beginning. Assuming that he was arrested, convicted and sentenced when she was either in the womb or as a newborn, she would have 12-18 months old when he went to prison.
The film never explains how she got to know her father considering her very young age , especially when it makes it very clear that his ex-wife has not only moved onto another relationship, but is unhappy to see him at Cassie birthday party which occurs within days of his release from prison.

He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow.
I took a detour... Through your defense lab.

Tell me that isn't what I think it is.
That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve.
You were instructed to go to Russia. May I remind you, Dr. Pym, that you're a soldier...
I'm a scientist.
Then act like one. The Pym Particle is the most revolutionary science ...

Antman. When I first heard about the plans for this movie I laughed to myself and thought, "How can becoming smaller be cool?" Sure enough, Marvel has surpassed my expectations and turned something I thought would be lame and uninteresting into something hilarious and actually pretty cool. I'm not going to include any spoilers, but I will say the fighting style of Antman is much better than I thought it would be. I learned a lot about the story as well as the abilities he has.
Antman gets much more interesting when doing combat. The ability to shrink and grow at will is something Marvel has gotten very creative with.
The language in this film is good enough for my young children to watch. There are no F or GD bombs to ruin the mood and the moment with the family. I'd say I'd surely watch it again.
