    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/thegeekfiles/2008/06/writer-of-antman-comicbook-mov.html

    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?

    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.

    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.

    I really can't wait for this film to happen! It seems like it will be an interesting approach to a superhero film

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

    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.
