Edgar Wright’s ‘Ant-Man’ Made Some Test Footage

We’ve been hearing rumblings about this already today, but ‘Ant-Man‘ is about to get serious for director Edgar Wright. Though he’s been attached to the project for a while, it appears that this week he shot test footage for the film to show Marvel what he plans to do with the character.

This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, and it fits into everything we’ve been hearing lately.  Wright has been working on the script for a couple of years now with Joe Cornish (who directed ‘Attack the Block’ and is now adapting ‘Snow Crash‘), but it seems that Marvel wanted to make sure that they had a good grasp on the public before delving into some of its lesser-known characters even though Dr. Henry Pym (aka Ant-Man) was one one of the founding members of ‘The Avengers‘.

This is by no means a confirmation that Marvel is going forward with the film, and Wright is about to direct ‘The World’s End,’ but as he’s been on the project for years now it would be surprising if Marvel didn’t like what he delivered. Wright also has the adaptation of ‘The Night Stalker‘ (with Johnny Depp attached) on his plate, so it’s likely that if Marvel does like what they see they’ll want to get Edgar into pre-production while he’s wrapping up ‘End,’ which is the word we’ve been hearing for a while.
