How about wanting an amazing movie that ties into others? Is that an impossible task?

No, but I care about the former faaaaar more then the latter. The fact that an amazing director like Wright is interested in a full Ant Man film excites me far more then how it ties into Avengers. After IM2 I think Marvel needs to step back a bit and make the films they are making work on their own because they seemed to have moved to far in the other direction.

On the LA Times chat with Feige, he said Wright is working on the next draft, and should go into production sometime after The Avengers.

That from what I recall was the stated plan with the Marvel films. After they jump the Avengers hurdle, they are going to do more modestly budgeted films with their lesser known characters.

I felt that way watching Incredible Hulk too. With the whole "needing Hulk's blood to create super-soldiers" it felt like an infomercial for Captain America. Hell Tim Roth turned into Cap at some point in the movie.

RUMOR: Alan Tudyk To Play Ant-Man?

[IMG]http://www.**************.com/images/articles/26922.jpeg[/IMG]





An anonymous scooper has given me word that Alan Tudyk of Firefly is locked in to play the role of Ant-Man in a solo film and a cameo in The Avengers, as well as some interesting stuff about heroes The Wasp and Wonder Man...
NOTE: I am not in anyway reporting this as fact. I thought I would share this email that I have been pushing back posting for close to a month just to see what your opinions were on the possibility of these casting choices.

About two weeks back I received an email from an anonymous scooper going by the name of Mister Orange(Reservoir Dogs?) claiming to be close to the production of Edgar Wright's adaption of the comic character Ant-Man. In another email unfortunately and accidentally deleted by me, Mister Orange goes on to say he is concept artist on the film and did not answer any more of my questions do to fear of saying too much.
[IMG]http://www.**************.com/images/users/uploads/10143/Antman.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://www.**************.com/images/users/uploads/10143/AlanTudyk.jpg[/IMG]
Hi Mister Orange here, I am close to the production of director Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie. Now as you may have heard it was jokingly reported by The Avengers director Joss Whedon that star of his show Firefly, Actor Nathan Fillion would be Ant-Man. But I have news on the contrary, In fact another Firefly star Alan Tudyk is not only locked in for a solo film for the character, but will briefly appear in The Avengers as the character's scientist counter part Hank Pym Along with wife and fellow super hero Janet Van Dyne(both whose transformation into Ant-Man and Wasp will be shown as the after the credits scene in The Avengers). Both characters will be in the process of creating Ultron(who is set up for the villein role in the solo film). The solo film will start filming directly after The Avengers with a cameo from Wonder Man, A role that is actually being largely considered for Fillion.
sounds like BS. But if true i wouldn't complain

Fake. Scott Lang is the main char of Wright's Ant-Man.

source? i haven't heard anything to suggest Lang is the MAIN character. If anything i vaguely remember something along the lines of 50/50 with Pym. But that would have been several drafts ago before there would have been such a cohesive plan for this film universe

I love Wright but i'm not excited at all about this one. I personally don't understand why Ant-Man is getting so much press and publicity.

As a comic book fan hes a decent character. He's not very marketable, nor popular though. I also don't think shrinking or growing as a power will translate on the big screen very well. I think it would look hokey on film. Controlling ants?, even worse.

I like the "spy thriller" idea. Mainly because you would have to alter the cannon quite a bit to make it work on film IMO. I could be wrong but I don't think I am.

I think they should just make him a "support" guy in the Avengers as their tech guy, along with his wife. Maybe even have him as a Shield scientist assigned to them. That would explain the "spy tech" type talk.

There are some characters that shouldn't and probably can't carry their own movie. Without some changes Ant Man is probably one of them.

I love Wright's idea of doing fight scenes with the shrinking dynamic, since he maintains his strength- jumping around people, shrinking & punching, growing & punching- it could be really cool to see.

The "e-mail" sounds like crap, but damn would it be cool. Also, Fillion as Wonder Man would be fun (and including him and Ultron in a film would be a step closer to Vision).

If you know Henry Pym, you won't think shrinking and growing is his only power. His brain is his superpower like Tony Stark meaning that his power is all self-made. Tony is more of an applied physics-math/engineer guy, Pym is a biochemist par excellence and also theoretical physics. So if they can't call Reed Richards on the phone, Hank Pym is next best all-around scientist.

Marvel obviously won't have the Fantastic Four movie license for some time, Ant Man is the next best fantasy science franchise.

I understand that. I do know thats not his only ability, but it is the most known and obvious ones from the comic. Once I've thought about it more i'm not so against the idea.

If they don't play up the shrinking/growing and insect control it could be a good movie. Thats why I said "without some changes".

Wrights a talent and the "super spy" angle the script seems to be at sounds like a good direction.

I'll keep a more open mind about it.

I mentioned Doctor Strange and we know that Edgar Wright is writing Ant-Man and has turned in a draft. You guys are obviously doing The Avengers next year, but this is obviously a beast that needs to be fed especially with your partnership with Disney. When do you think you guys will announce what is coming up in 2013 or 2014?

Feige: It probably won’t be too long from now as we are figuring that out now. Clearly, if you look at the Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the X-Men films, two or three years between sequels is usually what we like to do. You don’t know if you are making sequels till the movies come out or not. So I will say that there is flux in what the release schedule could be for 2013, 2014, and maybe 2015. Then we hope to…I’m meeting with Edgar Wright tomorrow morning. It is the longest…I said to Edgar, “You didn’t realize it was like 5 years ago or maybe more than that that we met at Comic Con?” But he has the best draft yet and I think we could be in shape to do it. It’s a luxury that it has been allowed to live and breathe like that. It’s not where it was just racing to a release date. Iron Man 3 is for sure. We are actively putting it together right now. What happens beyond that? We will see. But for the first time…frankly, when we did Iron Man and Hulk we had two movies in development – Iron Man and Hulk. Now, there is more of a selection. So we can go, “What scripts are we feeling good about? What properties do we now feel that we want to bring into the forefront?”

I think if they don't go crazy on the growing-shrinking CGI stuff and focus more on Pym's (or faux-Fantastic Four) gadgets some cost would be save to have a 100 million dollar or less budget movie that goes along with the slightly less earning/profit potential of Ant Man movie franchise.

Have either a promising young or a veteran actor who is willing to have small paycheck, then Marvel will have another character driven film. Essentially that's what keep Thor up amid what all the critics said about its "hasty" storyline.

^Thanks, marcvader. I sort of agree with you but I just used Brody 'cause (I think) he's publicly put his hand up to play Ant-Man.
I'll probably cut a fan-trailer using him anyway.

Ant Man is one of the few Marvel characters I know almost nothing about. I would like to learn more about him, I should definitely brush up on my history. But I just hope if they make an Ant Man movie they make it so that both comic book dorks and the general public can enjoy it, sort of like how Thor was.

Oh, and I'm dropping Brody from my eventual edit - will probably use Patrick (Nite-Owl) Wilson.
