Edgar Wright Teases ANT-MAN on Twitter

     May 7, 2012


Writer-director Edgar Wright took to Twitter this weekend to tease his long-awaited adaptation of Marvel’s Ant-Man.  Wright has been attached to the project for years, but took time for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and now he’s attached to direct Johnny Depp in The Night Stalker, and he’s working on the script for The World’s End with Simon Pegg.  However, Ant-Man still has a strong possibility of being Wright’s next picture.  Marvel Studios’ President of Production Kevin Feige says the project is “as close as it’s ever been”, and now Wright has posted an image on Twitter referencing the superhero.

Hit the jump to check out the image.

Here’s what Feige said last month at the European premiere for The Avengers:

“It’s as close as it’s ever been.  Edgar is getting excited to get behind the camera again and start some advanced prep work for Ant-Man… We are going to take some forward steps in a few months that will bring it closer than ever. In terms of release date, I don’t know.”

This past weekend, Wright posted this image with the following text:


Received this in the mail. What can it mean?

That’s just about as mysterious as it gets.  Was it a nudge from a fan?  Was it from Marvel?  The studio is almost certainly eager to start up some new superhero franchises after scoring a record-breaking weekend from The Avengers.  Ant-Man is a controversial character (read this humorous recap of his exploits), but I have full faith in Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), and I’m eager to see their take on a superhero flick.
