Ant-Man director Edgar Wright took to his blog this morning and simply posted he was doing “homework.” In his post, he also included an image (shown below) from the animated series Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes episode “To Steal an Ant-Man.” This particular episode is based on “Marvel Premiere #47,” and features future Ant-Man Scott Lang stealing original Ant-Man Hank Pym’s equipment and using it to commit crimes.
Wright told SuperHeroHype many years ago that “The idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both… Henry Pym and Scott Lang,” and with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously calling Wright’s Ant-Man movie a “heist film,” it seems likely that we might be seeing something similar on the big screen in 2015.
The big question that this brings up for the film is who will star Paul Rudd be playing? Previous reports pointed toward him as Hank Pym, but when Marvel Studios officially confirmed the actor in the role they made no mention of which particular Ant-Man he would be playing. Which character do you think Rudd will play in Ant-Man? Sound off below!
Ant-Man is scheduled to be released by Walt Disney Pictures on July 31, 2015.
