Marvel Releasing 'Ant Man' Movie in 2014 Becomes More of a Reality
At Comic-Con earlier this month, it was finally revealed and confirmed at the Marvel Studios presentation at Comic-Con last week that Edgar Wright will indeed be making an Ant-Man movie. Well, at least they showed us the test reel that was shot in order to gauge audience response, and it seemed like the studio was really going to move forward on the project. Since then, there's been no formal announcement of a production date or anything like that, but Latino Review, who has nailed Marvel scoops over the years (and is actually under fire for their spot on reporting) has learned that Ant Man is definitely coming. Read on!
Word on the street is that Ant Man is looking to start shooting in London right after Thor: The Dark World, which is slated to start shooting in August, wraps production. So if Ant Man starts shooting before the year is out, or more likely early 2013, a release sometime in 2014 wouldn't be out of the question. In fact, it might be the reason Marvel moved back their release of Guardians of the Galaxy (read more about those guys right here) from May to August of 2014. There's a good chance Marvel might give Ant Man a prime summer slot between the cosmic ensemble and Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is slated to arrive in April of that year as well. But the big question for me is who will play Ant Man? Could Simon Pegg pull it off, or maybe Nathan Fillion could finally get a superhero role outside of a musical? Thoughts?
