Full Version: Ant Man
Spaced Out Forum > Spaced > Spaced: Above and Beyond > Cast Watch
Officially, y'know, official 'n' shit - Ant Man is a go:

Ant Man is being adapted by Shaun of the Dead co-writer/director Edgar Wright. Wright will direct and co-write with scribe partner Joe Cornish. Edgar also will co-produce with his Big Talk Productions partner Nira Park.

Part of a big Marvel announcements schpiel here:
Oooh, Joe from the zombie diary. Good stuff.
Kick in the Head
That is cool!

And it makes sense. A few months ago, Joe was talking about going to Hollywood to be on the set of Spider-Man 3 and met Sam Raimi, and they talked about Edgar Wright being involved in some fashion - so it must have been about Ant Man. Neato. Could be pretty cool...

Ooooh. Now that's a superhero film that I'll be excited about. Let's hope they don't cock it up, eh? wink.gif
It's bound to be good if edgar's directing... if it's shite - which it won't be - i might die a little inside mellow.gif
Eh, Ant Man doesn't really do much for me. But I'll check it out just to support Edgar. Hopefully they get him a good script to work with.
I've never actually heard of Ant Man before. But I'll watch anything Edgar's directing.
Joe off of Adam and Joe writing a big Hollywood special effects movie. Brilliant.
Edgar & Joe Cornish - Sounds good smile.gif

So, is that going to be the original, Hank Pym, Ant-Man? If so, will that result in Giant-Man, Yellowjacket and Goliath movies? laugh.gif

Seriously though, with this Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Nick Fury and Thor all in various stages of production I smell an Avengers / Ultimates film somewhere along the line. Of those as well, I would say that as a character Ant-Man is the one that I would say would best suit Edgar and Joe.

I wonder if they'll try and wheel one out for 2009, after all, they're trying to get the JLA movie out around then...
