Ant-Man Movie Trailer [Fanedit]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=No5vyL7F7t4

Footage & Soundbites from Splice [2009], Takers [2010], Lakeview Terrace, The Mentalist, V -The Series, M.A.N.T.I.S., Iron Man 2, The Flash, Transformers 2, Mission Impossible 3, Hollywoodland, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Honey I Blew Up The Kid, Spartan, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the trailers for 'Wrecked' and 'Gun Hill Road'.

Music By Brand X - 'Road To Mayhem'

Inspired by popular fancasts and news that Marvel Studios have appointed Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World) to direct this lesser-known superhero, featuring Henry (Hank) Pym (Patrick Wilson), Janet Van Dyne (Morena Baccarin), Scott Lang (Adrien Brody) - I've just added other Marvel Studios cameos. I've been wanting to do this trailer for a while, and had no way of depicting a possible Ant-Man suit till I saw the M.A.N.T.I.S. DVD set advertised in a DVD catalogue.

Update
http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/118/1183724p1.html
Quote:
Marvel's Ant-Man is one of those titles seemingly stuck in Development Hell. Is the movie happening? Is it not happening?

Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish told Comic-Con that Hank Pym's movie is definitely "on."

"We turned in a new draft [of Ant-Man] on Monday," Wright revealed during the panel for the very fun, very awesome Attack The Block. He acknowledged that the project has taken some time to develop, as both he and Block writer-director Cornish have made 3 films since they started working on the script.

"But we're very excited about it," Wright commented. "We have some concept art and we really enjoy working on it."

If everything works out with this current draft, audiences could see an Ant-Man movie sometime in 2014.
I was expecting it to be released by 2013 but since i really want to see this there's no problem in waiting one more year

As I said in another thread (but it's more relevant here):

He seems to have been turning in a final draft for years though. I'm sure Wright thought earlier drafts were his last one, but then he had to revise them. He probably tells himself "okay, this one really is the final draft this time!"

Ant-Man won't be ready for 2014. He should stop working on these other projects and get a move on, or Marvel should pass it onto a different director/ writer who will fast track the project. Wright could be working on this for a decade with no real movement, only to give up in the end and hand it to someone else. It would all have been a waste of time.

Or he could make it and it could be good. Or they could hand it to someone who does an awful job.

It's probably the most anticipated Marvel movie for me, except Avengers of course, since they announced it in 08

My ideas:

Ant-Man:

I believe the villain should be Wonder-Man.
At the end Wonder-Man could become good(Or die)
Introduce AIM (No Modok....yet?)

Or you could just do Ulysses Claw but meh.

Introduce the concept of Ultron

Avengers 2:
Ultron as Villain, creates Vision using Wonder-Mans brain pattern.

If not in 2 then 3 But I'd like the Vision to be introduced earlier since he'd need time to develop and I'd like a future film with him as a main Avenger.

Wonder Man shouldn't be the villain and doesn't even really have a connection to Ant-Man. Why should he die either as a possibility, otherwise that leaves him unredeemed. He should be in the Avengers instead. And the only reason Ultron uses Wonder Man's brain patterns is because they are available and to preserve them. However, there is the whole Grim Reaper (Eric Williams) connection. He is the real driving force behind Wonder Man as a baddie, and he ought to feature in the Wonder Man story.

For Ant-Man, the villain should be Whirlwind at least, with Ultron being introduced, but only as a robot at the time and not a full-on villain until maybe towards the end. Then Ultron, like Loki, can gain tremendous power and take on the entire Avengers for Avengers 2.

I think AIM with Modok should be the villains in Ant-Man movie. Also He should start off as Ant-Man but soon after discover his able to change to Giant-Man and swith between the two like he does at the moment.

At the end Pym could create Ultron leading on to him being a villain the potential Ant-Man or Avengers sequel.

Hank Pym should be Ant-Man and the story line should include his first wife Maria and Janets father who Hank could work for being killed by AIM instead of the Soviets to get his newly discovered Pym Particles.

Pym is recruited by Shield to help bring down AIM a off shot of Hydra. He teams up with Janet out for revenge for here fathers death. They become Ant-Man and Wasp.

Bill Foster can make an apperance as Pyms best friend and colleague. Scott Lang can be a Shield agent with Agent Coulson who are Hank Pyms handlers. With Lang taking the Pyms formula at the end of the movie to help fight Hydra.

It's been in development hell since 2006. Right now is the closest this film has *ever* been to actually getting shot.

I just don't think this project is getting off the ground. It's been five years. Scott Pilgrim flopped. Wright is going to have to make something sooner or later and it isn't going to be Ant-Man.

Marvel should give this to someone else other than Wright if he's going to take this long. He doesn't seem very efficient or productive as a film maker.

What's the rush? I doubt there's anybody who could take the concept of Ant-Man and turn it into an interesting movie but Edgar Wright. Hell, almost half the people I've seen mention their wanting to see the movie is because of Wright.

The hell is up with you people? I thought you guys were film geeks too, you should know Edgar Wright is a ****ing powerhouse behind the camera that almost everyone in Hollywood respects and loves. His films don't make much money? Yeah, but everyone knows his movies are ace, including Feige who has repeatedly said that Edgar can take his time. It's not like a Hollywood AND cult favorite director isn't gonna be in demand because one of his (very well-made) movies flopped, like "oh man, Wright excels at his job but his movie didn't make much- he's BOX OFFICE POISON!" Feige has shown this. This actually sounds reminiscent of another scenario where a flopped movie's director was hired- Serenity, anyone?

Hell, Wright has stated this movie is his next project and once he focuses his attention there it will get done. Both Scott Pilgrim and Hot Fuzz had first drafts an unusually long amount of years before they even picked up a camera for them.

And yeah, the only reason I'm excited for Ant-Man (Marvel making it has me interested, not excited) is that Wright is at the helm. He can take another decade and I wouldn't mind in the slightest.

I think it's very convenient that Ant-Man is tied up in development. For all his positive qualities, Ant-Man is redundant in the Avengers, but not including him is an affront to some fans... being a founding Avenger is often his claim to fame. But with it tied up, there's no need to worry about him being included. Wright can 'take his time' as far as Feige is concerned. It's nice, and interesting.

That said, I hope he's a scientist and not a secret agent though, at least if its Hank, and it really should be Hank. And I hope Jan is more effective than she's often portrayed.

Let Edgar take his time. We've had enough of rushed projects (Iron Man 2, Cap, etc.).

Feige himself said Ant-Man is not a priority, and that's the reason they've let it breath.

I agree

They need to hire someone new and not Edgar Wright.

I wouldn't write Scott Pilgrim off.
Yes, it did poorly at the box office, and the mainstream critics were pretty meh; but among geekdom and indie filmdom, the movie is already attaining something of a cult movie status. Even though the big boys shied away from it, the bloggers and indiesphere gushed and ranked it high on their Top 10 lists for 2010.

Like most of Wright's stuff, it's more of a cult movie. And I'm sure that's exactly the direction he wants to take Ant-Man; I'm just not so sure that's the direction that Feige wants for the character.

But to be perfectly honest, as a solo project, I don't think you *can* play Ant-Man with a straight face. It doesn't need to be a broad farce, but I think if Wright applies the right blend of subtle parody and homage to the film, like he has his other "genre studies," this really could be another great cult flick.

The mainstream critics weren't that indifferent, it got an 81% on RT at least. Which was better than I expected when I went to check just now.

Ultron should be the villain. This will in no way hinder him from being the villain in an Avengers movie. I'd say feature ALL the Ant-Man, with Lang and O'Grady as criminals who steal pym's stuff and get into hijinks. You can still have Whirlwind as a henchman, but you gotta have a personal mastermind villain, and the only one Pym has is Ultron. You could, and maybe should, sub out Paladin for Whirlwind, as Paladin doubles as a romantic foil and early action foe. Throw in Bill Foster as supporting cast, and you've got a very nice group of people.

But I think Wright is going to do his own thing with Ant-Man, which is cool, but I'm not sure he's as in love with the source material as he was on Scott Pilgrim.
