Edgar Wright Offers an Update on Ant-Man

Ant-Man is the one Marvel film that has been the most talked about with very little to actually show for it. A script has been written by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish and everyone at Marvel Studios is reportedly pleased with it. There's a release date (November 6, 2015) and it's scheduled to kick off "Phase 3" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Test footage for the film was shown at last year's San Diego Comic-Con (see a recreation of it by clicking here), but still there's no big details on the film.

Speaking to IGN, director Edgar Wright talked about the hold-up and why he's waited so long to get into it.

“I’ve been collaborating with [Marvel Studios Producer] Kevin [Feige] during the whole of that cycle. I think people have always assumed… ‘Oh why is it taking so long to make?’ Part of it is because I wanted to make two other movies first. I wanted to make World’s End… me and Simon were very keen to make it and it felt like it was unfinished business and we wanted to wrap up the trilogy. The script came together really fast. Well not really fast, but it came together at a certain point where it was like ‘I really want to do this next.’

“But to be honest, the later I do it, it feels like I could learn more, especially about special effects. It’s a big effects movie, so I’m pleased to go into it having done Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End because you’re always learning more about that side.”

Though the film will probably share some connection with The Avengers sequel and the rest of "Phase 3," Wright says the film can stand on its own.

“It’s a way of doing a superhero film within another genre. I wanted to tell an origin tale in a slightly different way. It’s part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but it also feels like its own piece.”
