Ant-Man Could Film In London As Soon As Next Spring
Even though Marvel brought Edgar Wright AND his Ant-Man test footage to San Diego Comic-Con, fans wavered on fully anticipating a feature-length film because the studio never came out and stated on the record that they were making an actual Ant-Man movie. Maybe this would be a post-credit sequence in Thor: The Dark World or Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Possibly Marvel just wants to introduce audience members to Hank Pym and his pint-sized alter ago before he’s eventually used in The Avengers 2?
Nope. Latino Review says Marvel potentially wants an Ant-Man movie in theaters by 2014, adding that the production could set up shop in Marvel’s London facilities as soon as Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor wraps production on his Thor sequel. This would be Marvel’s third film on the slate for that year (with Cap 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy), which already has some fans complaining about possible overkill of the Marvel brand.
The bigger issue, from a production standpoint, would be Wright’s The World’s End, a comedy he’s prepping with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost that’s filming in New Orleans and is targeting a 2014 release date. As LR points out, the post-production process on World’s End could conflict with pre-production on Ant-Man (if it comes to that). But we’re putting the Ant-Man cart ahead of the Marvel horse. Basically, it sounds like Marvel is very happy with the reaction fans gave the Ant-Man test footage at Comic-Con, and decided to risk doing a full-blown Ant-Man feature. Things are about to get very small at the movie theaters, and that’s big news.
