Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man

ant-man

Edgar Wright gives Box Office Magazine the low-down on his upcoming Ant-Man movie:

I haven’t actually started the second draft yet–I’m not going to be able to until this film [Scott Pilgrim] is out–but what we wrote for the first draft, and what Marvel really liked, is that it’s funny… The idea is to make a high-concept genre film where it’s within another genre… I just wanted to do something that was slightly different than the superhero origin film. I felt that between that and the various mad scientist, crazy doctor films that we’ve all seen, this would be a way into an origin that was slightly different.

It’s a ways off (2012), but i like the way he’s approaching the film — do something new and fun with what is becoming a stale genre.

    I wonder which Ant-Man he’ll go with, since I believe they’re using Hank Pym (who was an Ant-Man as well as Giant-Man) in the Avengers movie

    that’s interesting. Is this movie going to be totally separate from that avenger’s frachise?

    I don’t think so… they could have it be in the same continuity by using one of the other characters who had taken on the role of Ant-Man in the comics, including the current Ant-Man character in the Secret Avengers series.
