Edgar Wright Kicks Off Ant-Man's Pre-Production Process
And tweets a new (old?) pic

03 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright is not a lazy man. His may not be as prolific as, say, Ben Wheatley or David Gordon Green have been recently, but he’s only taken a scant month’s break between a busy press tour for The World’s End and heading to Los Angeles to start pre-production work on Ant-Man for Marvel. 

As the tweet above shows, Wright is filling up on espresso to begin the long slog of bringing the script he wrote with Joe Cornish to the screen.

With regards to the picture, we doubt it’s actually from the current production: it’s much more likely that this is from the test footage he used to wow Comic-Con back in 2012.

We’re excited to see Wright’s kinetic style matched to the size-shifting, genius superhero Hank Pym, and the fact that the project is moving forward means we may soon learn who will play the title role. Ant-Man’s release date recently shifted from late 2015 to a spot in the crowded summer of that year, so it’s hardly a surprise that Wright is throwing himself into work on the movie. Watch this space for updates…

Could Hank Pym Be In Avengers: Age Of Ultron...
...During the final fight with Ultron, Ant-Man could be hiding in the wings, ant size, fly into Ultron mouth then increase in size, VERY QUICKLY into Goliath / Giant-Man proportions defeating Ultron....That's what I was thinking....Now that would make the audience think, "WOW! I have got to see the next Marvel movie!"...KERCHING FOR DISNEY/MARVEL. In Ant-Man, Hank Pym become Goliath and hands reigns over to Scott Lang to be the new Ant-Man. That's what I'm hoping for!

RE: Could Hank Pym Be In Avengers: Age Of Ultron...
I thought Whedon already confirmed that Tony Stark is the creator of Ultron in the cine universe. The only new Avengers currently scheduled for A2 are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. More

Could Hank Pym Be In Avengers: Age Of Ultron...
...at the end of the film by defeating Ultron?.....That would set up Edgar Wright's film nicely and get bums on seats for those people who say, "Who the f*** is Ant-Man?"..... More

I know people might be sick of his name but I think Cumberbatch should be antman, thought he looked the part seeing him in the spacesuit in Star Trek More
