Ant-Man’s Edgar Wright origin story revealed?

Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man is definitely Scott Lang rather than Hank Pym

Ant-Man and Scott Pilgrim‘s Edgar Wright posted to his website a teaser for the director’s Marvel Phase 3 movie in the form a screengrab from the much-loved animated series Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Screen shot 2014-01-07 at 11.48.47

The image comes from Season 2, Episode 5 ‘To Steal An Ant-Man’ in which Scott Lang lifts the Ant-Man technology/costume from creator Hank Pym.

Coupled with talk of Ant-Man being a heist movie, and incorporating both Pym and Lang’s take on the character, could this be the origin story for our Marvel Cinematic Universe take on the character?

Ant-Man will be released on 31 July 2015. Pick up Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim Vs The WorldShaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz as one Blu-ray box-set for £16 or on DVD for £18.75 from Amazon.co.uk
