I have just attended the premiere screening of Marvel short film Item 47. After the film, there was a Q&A, and a number of the questions were grasps for gossip on future plans for the Marvel Studios shared universe.
Only one struck gold.
A young fan – and I mean young – asked if there were plans to use Avengers 2 to introduce Ant Man or Wasp. Of course, there was no definitive answer from any of the assembled Marvel talent.
But Anthony Breznican, chairing the panel, went ahead and said it.
He told the lil’ fan that he would definitely want to be in Marvel’s panel tomorrow.
Now, I don’t have the exact quote, but Breznican repeated himself. He said it twice. He left me in no doubt. I think Marvel are going to make some Ant Man plans clear in their panel tomorrow.
Does this mean that we’ll be seeing Edgar Wright on stage? Could they possibly unveil his test footage, that we already know is in the can? Or might they even announce some casting?
Stranger things have happened than all of the above, and at Comic-Con too. Stay tuned.
