News of this first broke two years ago when Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead writer/director Edgar Wright was riding high from his post-modern indie comic adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, but now it looks as though Wright’s Marvel movie debut, Astonishing Ant-Man, could finally become a reality.
Yes, things are definitely happening,” Wright told Empire, “and other things are happening with other things as well. There’s some interesting plates spinning, and I dearly hope I’ll be shooting this year.”
Marvel Studios boss and Avengers assembler Kevin Feige previously commented, “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.”
