You'll Believe A Wasp Can Fly
Empire Australasia|May 2018

How director Peyton Reed gave Evangeline Lilly wings in Ant-Man And The Wasp.

Chris Hewitt

AS THE TITLE may suggest, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang isn’t going to have it all his own way in Ant-Man And The Wasp. As the exclusive concept art above proves, Marvel’s miniature hero will have an equally pixel-sized partner this time around, in the diminutive shape of Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne, last seen at the very tail end of 2015’s Ant-Man getting her wings, courtesy of her inventor dad, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). And one thing’s for sure: The Wasp is not going to be anybody’s sidekick.

NZXT H510 Flow - Compact Brilliance

AS YOU MAY KNOW, we’re big fans of small cases here at Maximum PC. It’s perhaps a bit of an Achilles heel of ours that we don’t focus on the larger chassis out there. But there’s just something about compact chassis that really hits home. For the vast majority who don’t hoard TBs of data and process vast simulations or render video footage, a compact machine like this is all you really need. On-board audio killed the sound-card, Nvidia killed SLI, Intel killed networking cards, and the M.2 drive has decimated every other storage form. Because of that, for most people, a small case that you can lift off the ground and plonk on your desk is a smart move.

GEAR of the YEAR

IT FEELS LIKE only yesterday we were gearing up for last year’s Gear of the Year awards. That prestigious moment where we gather our thoughts on the very best hardware that has been launched in the last year (or at least the gear we’ve had the opportunity to test) and give you our picks for where you should invest your money. It has certainly been an interesting year, that’s for sure, and jam-packed with a ton of new releases. Last time around, we were still reeling from the first year of the pandemic, the world of computing had just arrived at a rather abrupt silicon shortage, and Nvidia had just launched its latest and greatest 3000-series GPUs as well. Life was, fair to say, a little odd. And, arguably, it still is.
