While making the rounds to discuss Attack the Block, the enterprising journalists of CVG (Computer and VideoGames) hit Joe Cornish with some Halo and Ant-Man questions. Here's what he had to say:



It was previously reported that script features a time skip, starting with Henry Pym in the '60s and then fast forwards to modern times, focusing on Scott Lang. After numerous re-writes, it's unclear as to whether this synopsis remains intact. Further clouding the direction of the Ant-Man movie is the fact that Kevin Feige in an interview with Collider, previously stated that Ant-Man was originally intended to be Professor Selvig's mystery friend not Bruce Banner:

Feige: That scene is in the movie. Literally the only thing we took out were the words “Hank Pym”. It was when Selvig, Darcy, and Jane are on the roof and S.H.I.E.L.D. has just taken all of their stuff. Darcy is complaining about her laptop and Jane is going, “Who the hell are these guys anyway?” Selvig then tells a story, which is clearly alluding to Bruce Banner, that he knew a gamma scientist and this thing happened and S.H.I.E.L.D. came up, which he had never heard of again. Selvig may or may not have all of his facts straight on that, but those are the rumors that go around the science world there. He goes, “I have a friend who has had experiences with these people. Let me email him.” That friend is Hank Pym. But we took out “Hank Pym” because it felt like, “Banner! Hank!” We were just like, “Enough.”


In response to Cornish's Rolling Thunder idea, a movie that's shot all from one angle, scrolling from left-to-right sounds awesome, lol. Well, we know Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have delivered the script to Marvel. Looks like all we're waiting for is Kevin Feige to give the green light. Speaking of which, to read up on all the potatoes in the Marvel cooking pot, click here.


Edgar Wright plans to direct an action film for Marvel Studios with some humorous elements, insisting that Ant-Man will not be a comedy like Fantastic Four or a spoof. The script has been written by Wright and Joe Cornish, who plan to include Henry Pym and Scott Lang as major characters, with Pym as Ant-Man in the 1960s in Tales to Astonish style, and a flash-forward to Lang as Ant-Man's successor in modern day.
