There's a little over two weeks remaining for Marvel to make Ant-Man casting announcements which were promised before 2013 ends and 2014 begins. However, with principal photography scheduled to commence near the end of May, there's another five months for the studio and writer/director Edgar Wright to deliver the goods. But while wait for the cast to fill out, we can at least track down filming locations; hopefully leading to set pics when cameras do start rolling.

We've known that due to the lack of space in the U.K., filming for Ant-Man will take place primarily at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia. In addition, it appears shooting will also take place on-location in Echo Mill, Powder Springs, Georgia. A resident of the subdivision took to Twitter to reveal (and substantiate with a photo) that Edgar Wright, along with some producers, had stopped by his home and informed the suburban neighborhood of the Marvel production's plans.

Following mountainside mansions, New York towers, and otherworldly surroundings, the Echo Mill is somewhat of a fresh setting for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The West Cobb County subdivision was one of the filming locations used in last year's sci-fi/comedy The Watch. Anyhow, Ant-Man will also shoot in San Francisco, according Production Weekly supported by a tweet from Edgar Wright. And with Paul Rudd rumored to take the title role, the film is set for release on July 31, 2015.

I think Antman needs to a be little more hood, so I suggest Alfonso Ribeiro for Hank Pym.

Interestein - 12/13/2013, 12:40 PM
Hulk Hogan for Hank Pym.
jimoakley666 - 12/13/2013, 12:44 PM

He's already cast people. They just don't want to announce him yet...

I'm bored of waiting to find out who Antman will be portrayed by. Give it to Neil Patrick Harris. Make Ashley Greene the Wasp, and then bring on Whirlwind, who eventually joins the masters of evil for the 3rd Avengers film.

Im from Cobb County!!! thats cool
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 1:02 PM
airbeyonder18 - I cannot really confirm how I know this, but Paul Rudd is up for the running and is very interested. He is looking at the new draft of the script now. To my knowledge, he is very close to signing a deal. He wanted to see the edited scripted first. I have seen some of the script and it is really amazing!
Lobo89 - 12/13/2013, 1:07 PM
Adam Ant for Ant Man!
knocturnalzen10 - 12/13/2013, 1:16 PM
ike turner for antman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chewtoy - 12/13/2013, 1:16 PM
Cool... In the comics, Ultron was created in suburbia. There's something fitting about that.
knocturnalzen10 - 12/13/2013, 1:16 PM
@beto

lol
sexfoodcomics - 12/13/2013, 1:21 PM
Garuntee Scott Lang is the main ant man character in this
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 1:31 PM
sexfoodcomics - From the last draft of the script I saw, It's Hank Pym.
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 1:36 PM
intruder - I'd TRULY loved to, I've been so tempted to, but not only do first drafts usually really change a lot and are usually never the same, so I could be spreading rumors, but if Paul does take the role, I don't want him to get in trouble. Marvel is very strict. Good company, but extremely strict.
KrazyForKomix - 12/13/2013, 1:38 PM
Melissa McCarthy would be great as the Pym-ster. Let's roll with Marvels desire to turn the comic world on its ear!

Neato!

Have they actually confirmed its going to be Hank "Wife Beater" Pym as Ant-Man in this yet? Really Pym would be a hard sell as a movie lead and to be honest I'm not sold on Edgar Wright directing it either, personally I think this might be the MCUs first major flop and not just financially. I'll be happy to be proven wrong though but right now nothing about this makes me eager to watch this movie and I LOVE THE MCU...
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 1:44 PM
Pharaoh - All I will say is if you know anything about Edgar Wright and his types of movies, he takes a serious approach while making it very funny. Think Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Serious stuff that is really funny. The "real" Hank Pym works with his style. And that is why they are approaching people like Paul Rudd and JGL for the role.
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 1:58 PM
intruder - Just wait! It's going to be pretty amazing!
Neek2086 - 12/13/2013, 2:01 PM
Wow I stay in Riverdale Ga and Fayetteville is like 10 miles away..
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 2:14 PM
but the another location spelling error....
Gdub510 - 12/13/2013, 2:16 PM
I love that it says lack of space...for Ant Man
AGoodHonestMan - 12/13/2013, 2:18 PM
@ NFS

Do you know what new movies Marvel's working on? Do you know anything about Cap 2, Avengers 2? Big Hero 6?
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 2:19 PM
Thanks for the heads up @NFS, really useful information man!
AGoodHonestMan - 12/13/2013, 2:21 PM
And GOTG?
User1134 - 12/13/2013, 2:28 PM
That Dude Who Played Night Owl...Something Wilson!
themidnightking - 12/13/2013, 2:38 PM
@NFS Is there any news regarding Doctor Strange and Black Panther
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 3:00 PM
I know nothing else other than Ant-Man. Only because I know Paul Rudd.
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 3:00 PM
I wish I knew more! I'm hoping (and maybe this is selfish) that he will take the role so I can get involved a bit! :D
Sephiroth - 12/13/2013, 3:03 PM
I live 15 min from Echo Mill, i'll def try and get pics!!!
Sephiroth - 12/13/2013, 3:08 PM
@NFS thanx for the info! Im really excited about this film
TheAbomination - 12/13/2013, 3:09 PM
Guess this means Rudd will be playing Ant-Man.
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 3:13 PM
TheAbomination - Not officially, yet. He's still a bit on the fence, honestly.
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 3:15 PM
Sephiroth - It's my pleasure! I truly wish I could give more info. but if Paul really does take this role I don't want to ruin his chances or have the wrath of Marvel on me. I will say the villain is interesting.... ;)
NFSxThanos - 12/13/2013, 3:33 PM
intruder - Can't say at all. Again, could change (doubt it since they've planned this for years) and as soon as I say anything it'll spread like wildfire. As soon as it's announced who is cast for Ant-Man I will say who it is. ;)
m0th3r - 12/13/2013, 5:08 PM
So we have script, director, actors and confirmed locations for Antman...but just a Silent Trank on FF...which comes out a full year earlier..I read in another thread that people are starting to wonder if backroom battles involving Disney lawyers and the FF are happening...anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Tons of mutants news, nothing on FF...
Supervenge - 12/13/2013, 5:35 PM
Last sexfood said I thought there was an article on here where Wright said Lang was the main character. But I'm sure he received a lot of backlash so maybe changed it to Pym and that's why there were script rewrites.
