Some interesting news is coming out of the Marvel camp. It seems that both Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have gotten together again to film a quick test reel that could lead to a feature film starring one of Marvel Comics’ smaller superheroes, Ant-Man.
Ant-Man is based on Marvel hero Hank Pym, a scientist who discovered a way to alter his size. He used a helmet to control armies of ants and also was a founding member of the Avengers. (Two other characters took up the mantle after Pym moved on — one a thief named Scott Lang and the other a sketchy SHIELD agent.)
Ant-Man, with Wright involved, was on the initial Marvel Studios slate that the company announced in the mid-2000s as it put Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk into development. But Ant-Man was then sidelined as the focus turned to the heroes that eventually ended up this summer’s Avengers.
Wright has focused on other projects in the meantime, but he also has spent time nailing the Ant-Man script, which he co-wrote with Joe Cornish. Even though Wright is wrapped on said test reel, we wouldn’t get too excited just yet because test reels are not uncommon for certain projects, especially those that fall into the stylized or risky categories.
More as it comes.
