In recent news it now appears that Marvel Studios are officially planning to shoot their long in development Ant-Man project in London after “Thor: The Dark World” wraps up and director Edgar Wright finishes “The World’s End”. This comes only a couple months or so after Edgar Wright teased fans that he still had the Marvel project on the burner, and then of course there was the official announcement from Marvel Studios themselves at Com-Con, along with Wright.
It was Latino Review that was the “news render”, who broke yet another Marvel Studios scoop for fans. The site (who revealed earlier this summer that Guardians Of The Galaxy would be Marvel’s other big superhero 2014 team project) now says that, following the end of Thor: The Dark World’s production this summer, Marvel will officially begin production on Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man in London. The film has been quite long-in-development for some time, so those who have been looking forward to seeing Wright’s take on the sci fi Marvel character should be very excited to hear this news.
Wright is currently set to film The World’s End later this year, re-teaming with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Thor: The Dark World will begin production in London next month. So production on Ant-Man should begin sometime next year, as was previously stated by Pegg. It has been said by Marvel Studio’s head honcho Avi Arad, that since Marvel officially announced the upcoming project, it has been fast tracked, as the character would most surely appear in the greatly anticipated Avengers sequel.
Because of this, Latino Review is now saying that it’s looking very likely that Ant-Man will be Marvel’s third 2014 summer release, which has been rumored on and off since the recent debut of Wright’s test footage at San Diego Comic-Con, that was then rumored to “seal the deal” with Marvel Studios Execs.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and the aforementioned “Guardians Of The Galaxy” superhero team up are also set to be released on April 4th and August 1st, respectively in 2014. Still no star has been attached to the “Ant-Man” project as of yet, so stay tuned and well certainly keep you posted as more news comes in from the production.
