Wright is currently filming Scott Pilgrim. After that, maybe, he and Marvel start the production on Ant-Man.

I think this is still the latest news: http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/t...cbook-mov.html

EDIT: Ah, this is newer (July 2008. the other one was June 2008): http://www.superherohype.com/news/fe...ws.php?id=7525

CS: The interesting thing about "Ant-Man" is that after "Iron Man" opened so big, there was this huge Marvel Studios bells and whistles announcement of their movies for the next three years and "Ant-Man" wasn't mentioned.
Wright:
I think having spoken to Kevin Feige, the "Ant-Man" film I have in mind is a bit more stand-alone, and that's kind of what I wanted to do in a way. I think my take on it is something that may or may not fit into what "The Avengers" would eventually do, but they're very keen on it and they've even talked a release date with me in very vague terms. It looks likely that I will do "Scott Pilgrim" next and then "Ant-Man" straight afterwards.

I have a feeling that this is going to be a movie where the schedule dictates the release date, rather than the other way around

well.. as long as it's not rushed and bungled... I hope it will be considered within the current 'marvel-studios-universe'...

Hmm I dunno. That sounds very much like wishful thinking on Wright's part.

I'm totally psyched about Scott Pilgrim. But didn't Wright make some sort of picture deal that would also mean his third Pegg/Frost flick as well that they are planning?

Re: Edgar Wright's Ant-Man

just a question, what kind of villains does ant-man have? I've never really read any of the pym or lang comics, (just an issue of irredeemable ant-man where he has his ex-sheild partner knock him around from the inside.) so what kind protagonists could we expect to see should this film get made?

I believe Wright said that there weren't any villains in his script, and that it was going to be about Lang stealing Pym's Ant-Man helmet.

Ultron is his arch-enemy.

For Pym? Himself, really. He's one psychotic little dude, when you get to the thick of it. Don't really know much about Lang.

Over-all--if Wright does it, I'd be interested. If not--eh, I'll wait until it comes out on cable.

I was never really psyched about an Ant-Man movie (c'mon, even SNL recognized the lameness!) ... But if Edgar Wright is the director, then I'll be very excited for it!

I'm actually not digging Wright's supposed approach with this. Scott Lang was really nothing for me but a 70s-80s fill in. I would prefer a whole film about Pym against someone like Ultron.

I'd prefer they keep it more of an adventure story than the usual origin approach.

Never been a huge fan on Ant-Man, but I have loved everything Wright has done, from Spaced to Hot Fuzz, so I would see this film in theaters.

I agree. Ant-Man would feel appropriate as an adventure story about a man with the power to shrink himself to the size of an ant.

since he's apparently too old for Green Lantern, would Nathon Fillion work for Pym?

Default Pixar's Ant-Man

From Comic Book Movie: Pixar Interested in Making Marvel's Ant-Man Movie

Quote:
Hey, now here's some promising news about the Disney/Marvel merger! According to EW, Pixar has expressed interest to their Disney masters that they would like to make Marvel's Ant-Man movie

I got my Entertainment Weekly Magazine today, and there it was on page 23...

Marvel has thousands of characters to feed Disney's film, TV, and animation business (Pixar is said to already be eyeballing an Ant-Man movie). As Iron Man proved, they don't need to be iconic to become blockbusters.


Ant-Man does seem right down Pixar's alley, although audiences might be a little tired of all the tiny characters they've already done (Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo). Let's just hope that they don't rehash another Disney movie and call it Honey, I Shrunk Myself.
From Screen Rant:
Pixar To Produce Marvel’s Ant-Man?

From CinemaBlend:
Pixar Making Ant-Man?

From Bleeding Cool:
Would Pixar Make Edgar Wright’s Ant Man?

Now an animated movie would just be perfect. A live-action is very unlikely, he is good as a side-kick for the 4 Main Avengers, so perhaps a little introduction in The Avenger movie, but he can't bear a movie on itself. They should evolve his personality throughout the Avenger movie and possible sequels. We don't even now if Thor or Captain America are going to be a succes; it probably will ,but a superhero that can make himself grow till 100 feet and communicate with ants. I don't think there's a big target audience/market for it. Make an animation movie (Direct-to-dvd or maybe a couple weeks in the cinema) based on the live-action script, less budget needed and probably more chance of succes.

Bah... he is going to have to show up in live action eventually? His solo movie should NOT be animation... unless they make it after all his live action appearances, or at least the first couple of live action appearances.
