This 2019 Hyundai Veloster Hot Rod Will Star In Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’

No, it’s not a joke. The pictured modified version of the second-generation Hyundai Veloster will be introduced to the big screen later this year, as part of a global marketing initiative.

According to the Korean brand, the 2019 Veloster in hot rod attire will be featured in “a hot pursuit” scene of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp, which highlights its “capabilities in serving as the ultimate escape vehicle”, along with its “speed and handling”.

Finished in purple and adorned with yellow and orange flames, the tuned Veloster that would feel right at home at SEMA has a few other mods that make it instantly noticeable, such as the hood scoop, side exhaust pipes, large rear wing, and chunky tires.

The sequel of the 2015 ‘Ant-Man’ movie is scheduled to premiere on July 6 at cinemas across the US, and it will mark the Hollywood debut of other Hyundai vehicles, whose names haven’t been released yet.

“The Veloster totally exemplifies the energetic, no-holds-barred attitude that accompanies this franchise, and we’re going to have a lot of fun working with Hyundai to see how we can share that mindset with fans all around the world”, commented Marvel’s SVP of Global Partnership and Marketing, Mindy Hamilton.

Prior to its movie debut, Hyundai will start producing the new generation Veloster in March, in their homeland, with the first cars expected to arrive on our shores in the second quarter of the year.

Subsequently, the performance-oriented N version that adds a host of visual and technical upgrades, including a 275hp 2.0-liter four-banger, will be put together from September, and the first units will be shipped to the US before the end of 2018.

    If there was any desire to see this movie, it is now gone. How can movie producers think this is okay?

    • Well I doubt many producers are gearhead at first place.

    At first i was gonna blast this, but then i recall if i were a kid again i might think this was pretty cool. The movie was pretty good too, albeit a bit predictable. The comedy sequence in the beginning was very well done. Most people loved that scene, unless of course you are a depressed human such as the poster below.

      I don’t think people have anything against the movie, they just find this marketing ploy a bit appaling.

    Have to see the context of the scenes this car is in before I complain about marketing ploys and such.

  • I wouldn’t surprise that Hot Wheels will launch their version of it soon.
