Could ANT-MAN Be Shooting Sooner Than Reported?
We know that Edgar EWright is officially on board the project, and it seems we may also be getting a look at that Comic-Con footage before too long, but could the first cinematic outing for Ant-Man be with us sooner than we thought?
When Will The Ant-Man Begin Production?
Marvel's Phase 2 is well on its way to becoming the biggest thing since…well…Marvel’s Phase 1. With sequels to Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Avengers, it's easy to forget that Edgar Wright's Ant-Man is still waiting patiently to get made.
However, now we have learned that the sequel to Captain America is filming later than expected. Chris Evans had been making his interview rounds at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend and reported that production for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now set to begin in March of next year instead of the end of this year.
This leaves a convenient little gap in Marvel's shooting schedule between Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's possible that Ant-Man could fill that gap.
As Screen Rant points out, director Edgar Wright recently stated that he could begin shooting the film in London directly after Thor 2 wraps production. Additionally, Marvel heads Louis D'Esposito and Kevin Feige have hinted that Ant-Man may hit theaters as soon as 2014, which means the studio could be lined up for three major releases in one year.
If Ant-Man nabs this production slot, fans can expect to see casting announcements in the very near future.
As it stands now, Iron Man 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013; Thor: The Dark World on November 3, 2013; Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 14, 2014; Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014; and The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015.
