Edgar Wright Has Filmed Test Footage For Ant-Man image

With the exception of Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2 and The Avengers 2,
we really have no idea what's in the future for Marvel Studios. Over
the years we've reported rumors about movies for characters like Luke
Cage, Iron Fist, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange, but until they're
officially announced it's all speculation. One project has always seemed
closer than any other, however, and that's Ant-Man. Years ago
Marvel hired Edgar Wright to both direct and co-write (with Joe Cornish)
a screenplay about the shrinking superhero, but the project has always
seemed to be stuck in stasis. Now it's being reported that Wright has
finally gotten Ant-Man on screen, but unfortunately it's not for a
feature film...yet.

According to THR,
earlier this month Wright directed some test footage to see how Ant-Man
would play on the big screen. While no exact details are given about
what was filmed, they were apparently looking at the "potential look and
tone of his movie" as well as the character's powers. The original
version of the Ant-Man, who was one of the founding members of The
Avengers, had both the ability to shrink himself down and command armies
of ants with a special helmet of his own design. Wright has previously
said that his film will be an origin story and work as a high-tech spy film.

As exciting as this news is, it's worth noting that no matter how good
the test footage turns out, Ant-Man won't be Wright's next film. He is
currently preparing to shoot The World's End, a new comedy that
he wrote with Simon Pegg which will complete his Three Flavours
Cornetto Trilogy (the other two movies being Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz). That said, it's still nice to know that the project is moving forward in some fashion.
