Today, we’ve learned from StitchKingdom [via /Film] that Disney has recently purchased a collection of domain names that may hint at what project they have moving into development. The biggest one is for ant-man-themovie.com, which gives some indication that Marvel may be interested in making a movie based on the Marvel superhero, Ant-Man. As you may or may not remember, Disney purchased Marvel Studios last year and Ant-Man is one of the many characters at their disposal. Throw in Stan Lee’s comment on Twitter last month: “To make up for my previous grievous error, here’s a little item that may have escaped you. Marvel is prepping a movie starring– Ant Man!” and now you’re cooking with gas.
But before you start roasting up your casting speculation, etc, understand that a domain name purchase isn’t a greenlight or an indication that a movie is getting made. It’s a precaution so that if Disney/Marvel decides to go ahead with an Ant-Man movie, they don’t have to wrangle with a squatter (a person who buys up potentially-popular domain names and then ransoms them to big buyers).
