Edgar Wright Teases Beginning of Pre-Production on ANT-MAN with Set Image

     October 2, 2013


Though next month will see the release of only the second Phase Two film from Marvel, Thor: The Dark World, the studio is getting ready to begin production on its first Phase Three film next year, the long-awaited Ant-Man.  Filmmaker Edgar Wright recently took a very much deserved (and relatively short) month-long break after the release and promotion of this summer’s excellent The World’s End, and the director has now returned to L.A. to begin pre-production on Ant-Man.  To mark the occasion, Wright recently tweeted an Ant-Man set image.

Given that filming hasn’t begun and the lead character hasn’t even been cast yet, it’s safe to assume that this picture is from the Ant-Man test reel that Wright shot a couple of years ago, but it’s still a fun tease of what’s to come.  Hit the jump to check out the image.  Ant-Man opens in theaters on July 31, 2015.

Now I’m back in LA, it’s high time to finish a little something I’ve been working on…

    My most anticipated Marvel movie, and I know nothing about Ant Man except that he shrinks! But Edgar Wright is a genius and will do a great superhero movie.

    • je

      He can also grow really big.

      • Steve

        Hence the name “Ant Man.” Wait… what?

      • RiddleThemThis

        He goes by the name Giant Man as well… and yellowjacket, but thats another story.

    • Leo Spaceman

      He also created Ultron….Oh wait, never mind.

  • bidi

    i know it’s probably too obvious of a choice, but i would really love to see Simon Pegg as Hank Pym

    • eternalozzie

      Simon is used for goofy comedy relief … not good Ant-man casting … it doesn’t matter because Ant-man’s storyline is already screwed up because Marvel and Joss already have said Ant-man will have nothing to do with Ultron, his arch nemesis.

      A name I’m amazed that hasn’t been mentioned, Alexander Skarsgård.
      Pym is sort of a brooder. Skarsgard would be perfect.

  • Ginny

    If he isn’t cast as Lex Luthor, Michael C. Hall would make an excellent Pym.

    I’m confused… Pre-Production? Isn’t this a set photo?

    • Alex Hajna

      Never mind, I just read the article. I’m a dummy.

    ‘The world’s end’ started out fine. But the end turned out too dark for me. I hope he doesn’t give the dark treatment to Ant man.

    Edgar Wright is a great writer. he is the only one i can see pulling this off
