Wright seems to have learned lots from Scott Pilgrim.

Wright has said he has gained tons about special effects and action sequences doing Scott Pilgrim, The Worlds End and Stark Trek Into Darkness.

I liked Tin Tin which Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright did some script/story work for as well.

Great! I thought it was lousy. Nowhere close to Sean or Fuzz. Good FX though.

how will ant-man's strength be portrayed? will it decrease slightly with shrinking or will it stay the same?

Stay the same but it'll be interesting how they'll portray the physics of it all.

If they stick to the comics his strength at small size (Ant-Man) will remain the same as his strength at regular size.

Quote:
Size Reduction: As Ant-Man and Yellowjacket, Henry Pym possessed the power to reduce himself to the size of an ant, approximately one-half inch in height, by means of the subatomic particles known as the Pym Particles. The nature, source, and mechanics of the Pym Particles remain unrevealed. Originally, when Pym inhaled a gas or drank a potion containing the Pym Particles, the Particles would interact with the electrical impulses of his brain, creating an organism-wide "reducing field." Thus activated, the field reduced his entire body at a uniform rate to the smaller size he desired. Although he usually chose to reduce himself to one half inch in height, he could reduce his size to any size between that and his normal size. Usually, Pym did not compress his mass into his smaller size. Instead his mass was somehow extended into an extra-physical dimension that is opened by the activating of the Pym Particles, from which the mass could later be reclaimed. Strangely, because Pym's mass was extended extra-dimensionally when he was at ant-size, he retained his full human-size strength at that size. To return to normal size, Pym inhaled another gas or drank another potion, either of which contained another type of Pym Particles. These particles interacted with his brain to create an organism-wide "enlarging field," which is energized by mental command. Thus Pym could grow back to his normal height and reclaim all of the mass that was extended extra-dimensionally.

Size Addition: Pym also discovered Pym Particles which interacted with his brain to enable him to grow to gigantic height as Giant-Man and Goliath. The growth process required the rapid acquisition of bodily mass, presumably from an extradimensional source. This extradimensional mass fortified all of his cellular tissue, including his bones and muscles, enabling him to support his increased weight, and giving him superhuman strength. Early in his career this caused health problems due to the strain, and he was subject to various limitations on his size and the duration of his transformations. He is currently capable of growing hundreds of feet tall exceeding the heights of even the tallest buildings in New York. He can grow past the barriers of the "Macroverse" to enter Overspace, a point above and apart from all other realities where it is possible to confer with abstract cosmic entities.

Size Changing Too many size changing within a short time span can be fatiguing. Growing to gigantic sizes is more of a physical and mental strain and switching directly from giant size to insect size or vice versa is particularly taxing. Pym's most recent modifications to his powers may have included a variation on the additional mutation that he induced in Van Dyne years ago, which harnessed the energy of her size-changing process and used it to enhance her strength, presumably easing the physical strain of size-changing. Pym's strength, stamina and upper size limit in giant form all seem to have increased by comparison to his earlier giant-size since he became the Wasp.

Entering other Planes of existence: Pym sometimes used the Pym Particles to shrink to sub-microscopic stature. When 99.99 + % of his mass was extra-dimensionally shunted, he was sent into a "subatomic universe" or "microverse," one of countless alternate universes accessible to Earth only by the mass-shunting process. Such as shrinking down to enter the Microverse, and on one occasion growing into the plane inhabited by such cosmic beings as the Living Tribunal and the In-Betweener.

Mutated by Pym Particles: Continuous exposure to Pym Particles over an extended period of time enabled Pym to generate his reducing and expanding fields spontaneously, without exposure to a new quantity of Pym Particles. Hence, Pym could increase or decrease his size simply by will power.

My favorite comic book adaptation. Nails the themes and the characters, with a great cast, strong dialogue and the usual impactful editing from Wright.

Scott Pilgrim probably has the best comic book fight scene around as well. His trilogy isn't half bad in that regard either, especially Hot Fuzz and The World's End.

After "Scott Pilgrim" and "The World's End" I can't wait to see the action in "Ant-Man". Edgar Wright puts on the most incredible action sequences.

Yeah, he's really learned his way around a fight scene. Not surprising, considering how many of his movies have them.

Pre-production starts in October, so we'll probably start hearing about casting around December-January.

That fits with what Kevin Feige said a few months ago that they would probably start casting at the end of the year and start production next year.

Edgar's recent interview in which Ant-Man is brought up
Quote:
There are elements in that script that actually do continue themes from the other movies, an unlikely hero, a chance at redemption, and so, it’s not something, it’s going to be, it will be different, but I think it will still feel like one of my films."
I'm just guessing but that the unlikely hero is Scott Lang and he might redeem himself from his criminal past.

Unless unlikely hero and chance at redemption refer to two different people (ie Hank Pym for the first one and Scott Lang for the second) - especially since it always seems that Hank never wanted to be a hero as such.

After all, the Star Trek III: The Search for Spock taglines were: A dying planet. A fight for life.

They didn't both refer to the same thing.

Yeah, I'd say that's a given. Scott Lang --- good-hearted thief who's trying to help out his dying daughter. Sandman from Spider-Man 3, in other words.

Except done massively better, I hope. Scott Lang shouldn't come off as a needlessly violent thug.

I absolutely LOVED Scott Pilgrim. In fact, Wright hasn't made a bad movie yet.

YASSSSSS!! Scott Pilgrim is such a gem!



I don't know if I'm going to make it out to see The World's End, but we have Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead at the house. So much love!

Edgar Wright is such a talent. Love him.

Scott Pilgrim is a visually slick film, but, has a lot of areas that could have used improvement. However, having said that, I am excited about the Ant-Man project, especially since I picked up a bunch of the assorted titles (esp. Kirkman's run) at the local comic shop and read them over summer vacation.
