Disney and Marvel Studios have announced they’ll be releasing Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man movie on November 6, 2015. Wright has been attached to direct the film since 2006 but with Marvel focusing on The Avengers and Wright busy with other movies such as Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End, nobody got round to making it. Until now, that is.
Ant-Man follows a brilliant scientist who invents a substance that allowed him to change his size. Attack the Block director Joe Cornish co-wrote the script with Wright, and at Comic-Con Marvel revealed some unfinished test footage of Ant-Man shrinking and enlarging whilst fighting a group of guards in a hallway.
The World’s End is set to be released August 2013 in the UK and October 2013 in the US, so production will probably begin sometime in 2014. As well as Ant-Man, 2015 will also see the release of The Avengers 2. Can we expect some cross-over there? We’ll have to wait another 3 years to find out.
