It's official and Marvel Studios is moving forward with writer/director Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie for a potential 2015 release.
A couple of weeks ago it was reported Wright shot a week's worth of test footage for an Ant-Man movie in order to get a green light from Marvel and this same footage was shown at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con on Saturday night. Along with this footage, Marvel revealed the new title card for Ant-Man which means the green light is now on.
Over on Twitter, reactions to the Ant-Man test footage shown say it was only a scene where Ant-Man is running down a hallway while two goons in suits protect an elevator. The footage was said to be impressive and the suit mirrors that of the Irredeemable Ant-Man suit which is a full suit that looks like an Ant with antennas as well. Even though Eric O'Grady plays Ant-Man in this particular story arc, you can bet Wright will stick with the more popular Dr. Henry Pym as the big screen version of Ant-Man but this is just an assumption on our part.
We have also been told the suit will be the basis of the suit seen in the new movie as well.
It still remains to be seen if Ant-Man will be released before or after The Avengers 2 since both a scheduled to be released in 2015.
