"Ant-Man" Crawling To The Big Screen

Sneak Peek another new image of 'Ant-Man', tweeted by director Edgar Wright, plus his test footage of the Marvel Comics superhero character, now officially in pre-production as a Marvel Studios' feature, to be released July 31, 2015 to launch "Phase Three" of the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe'.

"'I’m starting doing pre-production on 'Ant-Man' in October, then shooting next year..." said Wright.

"In October, I'm going to start a script, which has existed in some form since 2007...

"'s great to kind of come back into something, which is in good that's exciting..."

'Ant-Man' was created in 1962 by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby for Marvel's "Tales to Astonish" #35.

Scientist 'Dr. Henry Pym' invented methods for an individual to be reduced in size, as well as a 'cybernetic' helmet to control insects with feelers, specifically ants.

The second Ant-Man was 'Scott Lang', a thief who reformed with the aid of Pym and 'Iron Man', becoming an affiliate of the Fantastic Four and full-time member of the 'Avengers'.

'Eric O'Grady', the third Ant-Man was a low-level agent of counter-terrorism organization 'S.H.I.E.L.D.', before he stole the Ant-Man armor " get chicks."

Director Wright, who researched 'nanotechnology' for his "Ant-Man" feature, plans to deliver "a full-on action adventure sci-fi film but with a comedic element", working from his own screenplay adaptation, co-written by Joe Cornish ("Attack The Block").

Both Pym and Lang will appear in Wright's film, with Pym as Ant-Man in his 1960's guise and a flashforward to the present with Lang as Ant-Man's successor.
