Marvel Studios is usually very secretive with their upcoming projects. Of course, some details regarding Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania still managed to surface online, and now Marvel wants to get to the bottom of it. In fact, Marvel is targeting Reddit users over the Ant-Man 3 leaks.
As shared by Variety, “Marvel is trying to track down the identity of the person (or people) who allegedly released a 63-page transcript of dialogue from ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘ online – one month before the film’s theatrical premiere.”
This is obviously a massive leak of information. And, for companies like Disney and Marvel Studios, it’s not something that they want to go unpunished. As shared below:
“A request filed Friday (March 10) on behalf of Marvel in federal district court in California asked the court to issue a subpoena to compel Reddit to identify the person or group responsible for sharing dialogue from ‘Quantumania‘ to the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit ‘on or about’ Jan. 20, 2023.”
Additionally, Variety notes that Marvel is looking for “all Identifying Information for the user ‘u/MSSmods’” in addition to “any other user(s) responsible for posting, editing, and/or maintaining the content” posted and made available on Reddit between January 15 up until February 15. It’s worth noting that the content is no longer available from the aforementioned subreddit.
“Reddit is committed to protecting our users’ privacy. We have rigorous processes in place to assess legal requests and object when appropriate,” a Reddit spokesperson stated when asked if they intended to comply with Marvel’s requests.
It’s been stated that Marvel has also attempted to require similar info from Google. This is because the document was allegedly shared to Google Docs after surfacing on Reddit. As such, it looks like Marvel is eager to take any action necessary to find the users responsible for the leaks.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay written by Jeff Loveness. The cast for the film includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.
