Marvel President Kevin Feige recently revealed that they are currently developing two unannounced film projects. We assumed that one of those projects would be the long awaited Ant-Man adaptation that Edgar Wright has been working on for the last few years. We've noticed things kind of inching forward with little hints being thrown out online here and there, like Feige saying that the film has been "closer than it's ever been." But Wright confirmed with Empire Magazine during their recent podcast that things are actually moving forward, and that he hopes the film will actually start shooting later this year! This is the first time we've heard anyone involved with the project mention anything about shooting. here's what he said...
Yes, Things are definitely happening, 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.
I can't wait to see who they end up casting as Ant-Man. Who would you like to see take on the role?
Wright talks about his film projects and how it usually takes him three years to get his films off the ground. You can listen to the podcast below, they start talking about it around the 18:45 minute mark.
