Edgar Wright Talks ANT-MAN And Marvel Studios; "It’s A Big Effects Movie"

For those of you worried that Ant-Man wouldn't find a place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Edgar Wright tells fans that it very much will be and also discusses the visual effects and test reel shown at last year's San Diego Comic-Con. Hit the jump for more!


Talking to IGN Movies, Edgar Wright has talked more about his plans for Marvel Studios' Ant-Man. The project has seemingly been in development hell for years, but last year's San Diego Comic-Con finally saw the adaptation confirmed for a 2015 release. Not too long after, it was revealed that the pint-sized superhero will hit the big screen on November 6th that year. Below are a selection of quotes from the Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World helmer about the movie, including his thoughts on the visual effects and working with Kevin Feige.

"It’s a way of doing a superhero film within another genre. I wanted to tell an origin tale in a slightly different way. It’s part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but it also feels like its own piece."

"I’ve been collaborating with [Marvel boss] Kevin [Feige] during the whole of that cycle. I think people have always assumed… ‘Oh why is it taking so long to make?’ Part of it is because I wanted to make two other movies first. I wanted to make World’s End… me and Simon were very keen to make it and it felt like it was unfinished business and we wanted to wrap up the trilogy. The script came together really fast. Well not really fast, but it came together at a certain point where it was like ‘I really want to do this next.’"

"But to be honest, the later I do it, it feels like I could learn more, especially about special effects. It’s a big effects movie, so I’m pleased to go into it having done Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End because you’re always learning more about that side."

"I hope that at some point we’ll be able to show that at some venue all finished. Because obviously at Comic-Con we showed it unfinished. All done it looks really good."
