ANT-MAN Test Reel May Be Released; Plus Viggo Mortensen As Dr. Strange Rumor Denied

Marvel executive Victoria Alonso denies that Viggo Mortensen is in negotiations to play Doctor Strange. Also the Ant-Man test footage that was shown at Comic-Con could be released soon.



In a conversation with the Omelete, Marvel executive Victoria Alonso has revealed that the Ant-Man test reel Edgar Wright filmed in last June, and showed a month later San Diego Comic-Con is being cleaned up for a possible release.
“What we showed at Comic-Con was a work in progress. We’re working on finishing it, and I think you might see it. Not sure where, but we always listen to the fans. And if the fans demand it we make sure they get it. I don’t know if we are going to post it online, but I don’t have [any reason] to believe we may not.”


After the footage was shown opinions were extremely positive, adjectives like fun, badass, and awesome were repeated numerous times. Click here to read some reactions.

Alonso reassured fans that Edgar Wright will direct, which is something we already knew. He'll most likely begin on Ant-Man once he finishes his "Blood and Ice Cream" trilogy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It began when the trio worked on Shaun of the Dead, then Hot Fuzz and will conclude with The World's End.

She also addressed a rumor that came from a mysterious Twitter account which claimed that Viggo Mortensen was in negotiations to play Doctor Strange.
“We would love to work with Viggo Mortensen. I’ve been trying that for years. But I don’t know if Viggo is even acting anymore. I thought he wasn’t acting anymore. It would be great to work with him in the future, but we don’t have him signed, no.”
