Edgar Wright Has Directed a Test Reel for an Adaptation of 'Ant Man'
In May we were excited again about the prospect of the long gestating adaptation of Marvel's Ant Man in the hands of Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright, and Kevin Feige said it was closer to a reality than it had ever been. Well, the good news is that's even more true now as THR has learned Wright just finished shooting an official test reel for the film in order to test out the potential look and tone of the movie, not to mention determining if Ant Man's super powers actually look good and convincing on the big screen. However, at this time we don't know who played Hank Pym, the scientist who becomes Ant Man. Read on!
For those who aren't familiar with Ant Man, Biophysicist and Security Operations Center expert Dr. Henry 'Hank' Pym decided to become the superhero after discovering a chemical substance that would allow the user to alter his size. Armed with a helmet that could control ants, Pym would shrink down to the size of an insect to become the mystery-solving Ant-Man. Again, this sounds like a bit of a silly premise, but with Wright at the helm, you can't help but have faith in the guy. Will we ever see this test reel? Probably not, unless there's a Comic-Con surprise in store. But if all goes well, maybe Ant Man will get a film finally.
