Edgar Wright Could Make 'Ant-Man' Next, After The Avengers
With so much talk of comic book movies these days, and with Iron Man 2 coming up very soon, it's time to get a status update on Marvel's Ant-Man, which Edgar Wright had been developing until he started Scott Pilgrim. Our friends at SuperHeroHype talked with Marvel's Kevin Feige recently and asked him about the Ant-Man movie. "Edgar was in L.A. last week, we sat down, and we started working on a calendar of when to get him back into it once he finishes promoting Scott Pilgrim, so I think towards the end of this year, early next year we'd start looking at early prep for that, but certainly for a release date after The Avengers."
Although Wright has been attached to the Ant-Man movie for a long time, he's held onto the opportunity, waiting for the right time to make it, I suppose. It was actually just a few months ago when we reported that Stan Lee had been talking with Wright about that movie as well. It sounds like Marvel wants to get things going once he's finished with Scott Pilgrim, but of course, you never know, as we did report last year that he was going to make a comedy called Baby Driver first. The Avengers is scheduled for May 4th, 2012, so the earliest we could see Ant-Man is in late 2012 or sometime in 2013, but that's a long ways away. Stay tuned!
I remember when Disney bought Marvel late last year, everyone started talking about seeing Pixar make an animated Ant-Man movie with Edgar Wright, but I think I'd rather see live-action. What do you think?
