IRON MAN 3 After-Credits Scene To Feature Edgar Wright Helmed ANT-MAN Sequence?

IRON MAN 3 After-Credits Scene To Feature Edgar Wright Helmed ANT-MAN Sequence?

We don't know the specifics of what exactly it will contain, but Edgar Wright has revealed on Twitter that he has "directed one shot" in a summer movie. Could he be talking about an Ant-Man appearance in the after-credits scene of Iron Man 3?

Has Edgar Wright inadvertently revealed Iron Man 3's after-credits scene? Here's what the director (who has signed up to helm 2015's Ant-Man) Tweeted just a few minutes ago. As you can imagine, a lot of people guessed that it was the Marvel movie he was talking about. Were they right? It's hard to find any other serious suggestions from his followers, so quite possibly, yes!

Personally, I'm not so sure. While this scene could be setting up Ant-Man's introduction in The Avengers sequel, there's been no word on whether Marvel even has anyone in mind for the role, while other recent reports have indicated that the after-credits scene will have something to do with Guardians of the Galaxy. Wright's use of the word "one shot" may also be noteworthy...what do you guys think? As usual, be sure to sound off with your own thoughts and theories below!

When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

This would be awesome, but why would they tease Ant-Man when it's so far away? Wouldn't Thor 2 be the logical choice for the after-credits scene since it's the next Marvel film being released?
Dev - 4/8/2013, 6:22 PM
So Wright directed the GoTG after credits scene in IM3 or is there another after credits scene with Ant Man included?
rockerdude22 - 4/8/2013, 6:24 PM
Maybe it shows Pym working on Ultron or something like that.
PsychoManiacJacky - 4/8/2013, 6:29 PM
Oh great spoilers in the title yet again and no warning....Haha joking spoilers are fun!
Superman21 - 4/8/2013, 6:32 PM
Don't play with my emotions Wright. lol. Just say it!

One Shot= Blu-Ray
marcvader1 - 4/8/2013, 6:35 PM
One shot hardly does an after credits scene make.
maryboo - 4/8/2013, 6:35 PM
What about that tweet indicates in any way that it has anything to do with Iron Man 3? You guys are too quick to jump the gun with these things.

Could be the Ant Man test real, or something to do with Pym
ahhmynuts - 4/8/2013, 6:38 PM
if it is ant-man after IM3 then i think the chances of ant-man appearing in avengers 2 jumped up significantly
MarkV - 4/8/2013, 6:38 PM
one shot = porn movie
marvel72 - 4/8/2013, 6:40 PM
i thought you had more chance the end credit scene of iron man 3 leading into thor the dark world than a teaser scene of ant-man.
SuperDude001 - 4/8/2013, 6:40 PM
Maybe IronMan 3 is going the way of the Avengers and doing an after credits-sequence scene (e.g. Thanos - in this case GofG) and then a proper after credits scene (e.g. Shwarma - this Ant-Man). Well that's my guess.
CoulsonLives - 4/8/2013, 6:42 PM
Don't you mean... That escalated quickly?
NoAssemblyReqd - 4/8/2013, 6:43 PM
One shot or one scene? Would they do a long static after credits shot like on AVENGERS?
thewonderer - 4/8/2013, 6:43 PM
Ant-Man appears in Man of Steel.
LFANCH - 4/8/2013, 6:45 PM
I would honestly prefer if there was just a mid-credits scene and no after the credits scene. At this point a lot more people are staying after the credits so there really isn't a point to make people wait that long. It would make things easier on the theater workers too, I would imagine it would be difficult to begin cleaning the theater with a bunch of people still sitting in there.

Please let it be the test reel
TheAbomination - 4/8/2013, 6:48 PM
Wasn't there a rumor about an Ant-Man post-credits scene in Iron Man 3?? God, I hope this happens.
WildCard12 - 4/8/2013, 6:52 PM
Don't even know who ant man is and was hoping for something better after iron man 3 credits that someone named ant man.
CoulsonLives - 4/8/2013, 6:54 PM
Hank Pimp and his Pimp Particles... XD
SuperDude001 - 4/8/2013, 6:54 PM
ManofSteel91 @ How are you on a cbm website and not know who Ant-Man is? You know Hank Pym? An original Avenger?
Optimus83 - 4/8/2013, 6:57 PM
Ant-Man with Iron Man 3. ...¡¡¡Cool!!!
CoulsonLives - 4/8/2013, 6:57 PM

Hank deserves better... He had so many mental break downs...
BenjiMan - 4/8/2013, 6:57 PM
@DEATHbyEXILE Hahahahahah

That is all...Actually Hahahahaha. Fat kids are funny.

Ant-Man (to supes): You're part of a smaller universe, you just don't know it yet!
aRandomSinisterClone - 4/8/2013, 7:02 PM
what happened to everyone being sure it was the Deep Space Suit N GOTG???
sephiroth211 - 4/8/2013, 7:04 PM
If at the end of IM3 he takes off with his deep space armor, and then they show something about Ant-man afterward...

SuperDude001 - 4/8/2013, 7:05 PM
CoulsonLives @ Meh, hopefully Film version of Pym (well I think that's the Ant-Man they're going with) will be a bit watered down; like not in a bad way, just for example how they've dealt with Tony's drinking. Show it, but down make it a major tragedy and for MCU make it their own story.
rockerdude22 - 4/8/2013, 7:06 PM
@Batmaniac Well, the after credits scene (if this is true *fingers crossed*) is sure to be leaked online at some point. If you don't want to see IM3, then you could just wait til the scene is leaked. Not something I'd do, but hey.
rockerdude22 - 4/8/2013, 7:08 PM
I'll say this too. I like this idea better than the GOTG after-credits idea. GOTG is my most anticipated Phase 2 film, but I really don't like the idea of Tony interacting with them (at this point anyway).
80sFace - 4/8/2013, 7:13 PM
Marvel's trying to throw the scent off, keep us all guessing.
rockerdude22 - 4/8/2013, 7:15 PM
@Batmaniac Hey, if you're willing to sit through a movie you don't think you're gonna like just to see a short scene, more power to you. That's not something I'd do, but hey, we all have our preferences.
Bread - 4/8/2013, 7:16 PM
Hopefully there are mid and after credit scenes
rockerdude22 - 4/8/2013, 7:17 PM
Also, I personally think this movie will be great! Got a great writer/director, a talented cast, a classic Iron Man baddie in the Mandarin, plus the trailers have got me excited!
CoulsonLives - 4/8/2013, 7:19 PM
@SuperDude001 How about make him witty? People love witty scientist... And make him slightly uptight. And not a total douche like in the Ultimates...
sephiroth211 - 4/8/2013, 7:21 PM
Ironman 3 a mess of a film?

From what has been shown so far, this looks far from being a "mess".
