The Director recently completed test footage which was shown at this years San Diego Comic Con, and recieved positive feedback.

Wonder if Pegg is going to make an appearance in Ant Man.

Well, this meshes with what he said about his script a few years ago, mentioning that he wanted to adress both the Hank Pym and Scott Lang Ant-Man eras.

I would bet that this movie will be released in 2015 along with avengers 2. wish we could watch the test footage

I hope he is right!!

this would mean casting news sooner than expected and probably a late 2014 release.

Y'know im getting the feeling more and more that he wont even ue Pym that much... He saidthere was a wierd thing wth the time in which the movie takes place (Edgar Wright) and people are saying the suit doesnt lok like Pyms so it has me alittle worried because i REALLY want to see Hank and Janet in Avengers 2 but im sure Edgar will deliver agreat film regardless
Ha1frican - 7/15/2012, 10:30 AM
But either way PATRICK WILSON for Hank Pym
typicalfanboy - 7/15/2012, 10:50 AM
from how wright has been talking about this movie, pym will be a 1960s hero, and lang will be the modern version who steals pym's suit. if that's still true, i don't see why pegg wouldn't play pym.

maybe 2015 and then Avengers 2 later that year?

This movie has "bomb" written all over it.
jazzman - 7/15/2012, 12:30 PM
how the hell we dont have any leaked Ant-Man footage

@Minotauro

we got to wait and see when it comes out.

I agree, I can't believe nobody recorded teh ANt Man or Iron Man 3 stuff. I'm impatient
Durf - 7/15/2012, 1:20 PM
Well, that sounds pretty awesome. Let's just hope it is actually true.

@Jacky: Word of advice, never go full retard dude
TheMightyTroy - 7/15/2012, 4:54 PM
YES! I hope 2014 is Cap 2, GotG and Ant-Man! that would be a perfect year and great to lead into 2015 Marvel movies :D

@TelaVizion: They may have been talking about the Hulk, since he was created 4 and a half years before Iron Man came to be.

Hank Pym needs to be a contemporary of Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Reed Richards (even though Marvel doesn't have FF right now.) I'll be very disappointed if they put Pym in the past and use Scott Lang for the present. Pym fits better with the Avengers too and of course there's Ultron, which leads to Vision. So yeah, Pym is more important to the overall MCU.
FoxForce5 - 7/17/2012, 10:11 AM
Pegg to play Pym for the win; FTW!!!
marvelmaniaco - 7/18/2012, 4:01 PM
I only want hank pym lol I dont want Lang
