MOVIES Evangeline Lilly

It’s a bird... it’s a plane... it’s a phallus?

Promoting new poster art for her film ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ Lilly noticed that there appears to be a strange object in the background, odd even for a superhero movie.

“Yes...there’s an intimidatingly large and [phallic]-ly shaped object directly behind me. Moving on...THIS POSTER IS COOL-AS,” she tweeted, along with the new poster.

Have you spotted it? Look square in the middle of the poster. It’s supposed to be a skyscraper, but come on!

Intentional or not, the image prompted jokes about Disney, which own Marvel Studios, the producers of the film. It seems this is not the first time phallic imagery has appeared on Disney poster art.

“What the hell, is that some deep-cut Disney poster design in-joke?” tweeted one fan.

“Disney being Disney! This is like the [‘Little Mermaid’] promo art all over,” tweeted another.

Well, how about that for some movie trivia?
