Also, even though this is far from any kind of confirmation as it was a while back and the individual may not be credible, but on Amazon's site for the MCU Box Set under product reviews there is an individual who claims that on 11/21/2012 that several news sources were stating that teasers for several marvel projects would be included in the box set and Ant Man was one of them listed. So, once again far from proof as I don't remember any news sources stating this specifically, but who knows I could have missed it maybe it has some truth to it.

Yeah, I was just agreeing with you. It seems like there would have to be a solid reason to sink any kind of money into test footage that has already played its part for the purposes of the studio. If they are "completing" effects on the test reel, its logical to assume that the purpose would be to either add it to the extras for avengers or maaaaaaaaaaaybe for some kind of end credits scene in phase 2!? I doubt that it would be for an end credit scene so....dvd extra makes the most sense.

Agree wholeheartedly about Ant Mans sillyness factor being why I love him, I just hope it's Hank now but I have faith in Marvel whatever direction they go it will be respectable.

I'd take the link down, you're not supposed to link to bootleg videos.

Saw the footage last night. Thought it looked great. Cannot wait. Edgar Wright has yet to disappoint me.

Yeah, they would definitely not want to show any fans any test footage whatsoever this early in the ga-- oh wait, they DID, at Comic-Con, last year... and oh yeah, they did again, in London, last Thursday...

...and there was definitely negative buzz from those screenings for sure.

'Leaked' stuff makes people even more interested. Maybe it's all part of a marketing strategy. Who knows.

Mainly to show we don't allow bootlegging on the boards. lol
See IF the film company WANTED everyone to see it they would post it on-line. This test footage was to show Ant Man could be done to a select few people, not the public.

Yeah I don't get WHY they just don't allow the footage to remain on-line since it was shown at SDCC last year. Granted, like I said it was to a paticular audiance and it wasn't finished. (there was supposed to be visible wires and such)

I think more news is made because of the Leaked test footage getting online than the actual viewing lol

Which might be one reason for them to not officially release it: the leaked stuff receives more attention. This would imply that a fair amount of "leaked" material is deliberately leaked, mind, even if they do put in efforts to clamp down on it afterwards ( you know, at the point when its already loose and impossible to truly remove anyway ).

then i hope that the next bit of leaked information involves the plot of the movie and/or who they are looking at to play the lead(s).

Showing a handful of fans at comic-con does not equate to officially releasing it for MILLIONS to see. It's an unfinished product that may not look like that in the final film, it does not make business sense to officially release it. There is a reason companies do not put out test footage...because it is test footage, i.e. a concept at best. Releasing it and giving millions and possibly false impression of how the movie will be WOULD cause negative buzz after the final product is shown and it's nothing like a lot of people were expecting. This is not hard stuff to grasp.

Right. I guess "test footage" is only interesting to die hard fans. This kind of leaked stuff hardly gets big headlines, but it does bring a lot of word-of-mouth, specially in the comic-book circle.
I don't know much about marketing. But I showed the footage to a female friend and she said that not only it looks awesome, but she'll go watch the movie when it comes out. It provides anticipation which, with 2 more years ahead of us, I'm sure that footage will reach more people, just like my friend. And that's another ticket right there.

You're missing the point. It doesn't matter that it could generate interest, you just don't officially release test footage. It's not about whether or not only die hard fans are interested. You do not release an uncompleted product, it is counterintuitive.

I never said or talked about releasing it officially.
I think the way the footage found its way is actually fine, it works, it's good word-of-mouth for the movie.

Hey guys,

So I wrote a user editorial article speculating how I think Ant-Man is going to work within Phase 2 & 3. It's on the site that shall not be named, so I won't post the link here but I figure most of us frequent that site as well.

Go check it out if you've got a chance, it's all just purely ideas that I got bored and put together. I would spoiler tag it here but I figured it would just divert attention to everything else we've been chatting about here, so if anyone would like go read it and comment there and we can chat there

Okay well just wanted to interject that here, in case anyone was interested. Thanks and hope to see ya there!!

Gutted that I missed the footage. It's probably still available on some small site somewhere, but I'm in work and my internet is largely restricted.

It was pretty....astonishing

I don't know if you saw the 'fan' video made off the top of an artists head, but the artist got it surprisingly close.

If you get a chance, check it out!

mkilban, I read your article and you have some pretty good ideas on how it could play out, but of course it is still very early in the process and Marvel can still introduce these characters in any number of ways. So, I guess we will see.

Oh, and sorry it didn't post my response elsewhere, but I don't have an account over there despite using the site frequently.

Thanks for sharing!

I managed to catch the vid before it was taken down and although the quality wasn't great I was amazed how awesome it looked for test footage. Not only that but how giddy I felt watching it. I mean, it's ANT-MAN FFS lol. Not exactly a character I ever paid much attention to. But I liked what I saw.
