Edgar Wright Has Wrapped On An Ant Man Test Film… Just In Time For Comic-Con

Edgar Wright did tease that he hoped to film some Ant Man this year, some more Ant Man next year. Well, it seems he was being pretty straight: The Hollywood Reporter have it that Wright has wrapped on a test reel showing of his Ant Man concepts.

Brilliantly timed for Comic-Con.

Not that I expect we’ll be seeing it there.

Not that I dare expect that. Can you imagine such a thing? Well… I guess it’s what Disney did with Tron: Legacy.

Calm down Brendon…

But. Wow. Personally, my interest in the Marvel panel has just shot through the roof. Iron Man 3 is one thing, but a demonstration of Ant Man? Already?

As to what Wright would have been testing, we’ll have to wait and see but I have a hunch. The film will feature a lot of action set pieces, and make much play of Ant Man’s ability to shrink, and return to full size.

Imagine what he can do in a fight if he can ping up and down in scale at will. The possibilities are mind boggling.

There’s no announced casting yet, so it’s not clear who Wright would have had in his test film. Might have been Peter Jackson for all we know. Or Cate Blanchett in a mask.

Or perhaps the casting has been done, and we’re just a quick plane ride away from San Diego from finding out.
