Every single MCU Phase 2 film has featured a character getting their hand cut off, in a deliberate nod to Star Wars, and Kevin Feige has said that Ant-Man is no exception. I saw Ant-Man with my friend over the weekend, but I forgot to look for the Easter egg at the time and now I can't recall where it was. I hate to say it, but...

Can someone please give me a hand? :)

No one's hand gets cut off in Ant-Man. The closest thing we get is;

When Darren Cross (Yellowjacket) is being killed after Scott goes sub-molecular in order to stop him, his arms is destroyed/implodes first.

This is the closest thing we get to the idea of a hand being cut off in Ant Man.

Also, it's worth noting that it isn't just the phase 2 films that contain scenes where a character loses a hand. Both Daredevil and season 2 of Agents of SHIELD contain a character losing a hand.


There's another possible answer. Towards the end, as Scott and the flying ants chase the helicopter,

Anthony is shot and his severed wing flutters to the ground.


It's very subtle, and happens at the end of the movie:

When Scott disables the Yellowjacket suit, the first thing that happens is Darren's hand is crushed and disappears, several seconds before the rest of him.


Actually, there is an arm-loss scene:

Yellowjacket/Darren Cross loses his right arm as he is dying/crushed into his own suit.
