Ant-Man isn’t as big a name as some of the other superheroes who’ve made it to the screen lately, perhaps because even as superpowers go, his ability (he can shrink in size without losing his strength) is kind of odd. Nevertheless, Edgar Wright is confident that he can make the character shine in his new movie.
In a recent interview, the director asserted that “people will be surprised” by Ant-Man, even as he acknowledges that those who are unfamiliar with the character may not “get” him right off the bat. Hit the jump to read his comments.

The three films and one TV show from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost are notable for their entertaining engagement of well-known genre ideas, and for the way that they subvert some of the typical uses of those ideas to examine friendship and personal growth.
But, let’s face it, the films resonate with audiences at first blush in large part because Pegg and Frost and the rest of the casts of each project clearly have a great time working together. Here’s a set of outtakes from The World’s End that puts you in some of the more lighthearted moments on the set of Wright’s conclusion to the “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy.” Read More »

The Internet has been all a-flutter over last night’s news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd were the top picks to lead Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man, but now it seems we can cross one of those names off. In an interview today, Gordon-Levitt dismissed the talk as mere “rumors.”
Meanwhile, Wright maybe, possibly, indirectly referenced the report in a cryptic new tweet that reveals nothing at all. Hit the jump to read his comments.

What sort of movie is Edgar Wright planning to make with Ant-Man, and who’ll he get to play the lead?
Coming from Wright, whose films all feature a mix of action and comedy, and given his fun and energetic demo reel for the character, it’s no surprise to see that there’s likely a real comic slant to the film. Or that’s the impression given by the current two-name shortlist for the lead role. The two names reportedly in real contention to play Ant-Man are Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who, realistically, seems to be in contention for many roles of this type) and Paul Rudd. Read More »
The World’s End has truly ended. After opening in most markets across the world, writer/director Edgar Wright has finished promoting the fantastic film and can move onto his next project. That next thing, as we all know, is the kickoff to Marvel’s Phase Three: the Summer 2015 release Ant-Man. A couple months ago Wright completed a short test reel, which was first shown at Comic-Con 2012, but he just took to Twitter to tease more work on the film with an exciting new image. Check it out below. Read More »
We’re going to see Edgar Wright‘s Marvel movie a few months earlier than originally planned. Ant-Man, the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3, was originally set for release on November 5, 2015. It has now been moved up to July 31, 2015. That’s about two months after Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters plus it’ll no longer directly compete with the 24th James Bond film and Peanuts animated film.
With Ant-Man moving from Fall to the Summer, Disney now has four confirmed titles with Summer 2015 release dates: Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, Inside Out on June 19, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 on July 10 and now this. That leaves very little Summer room for Star Wars Episode VII and helps support the idea that Disney will bump that film back to Winter. Read More »

Hopefully, lots of you caught part three of the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy this past weekend. If you did, you might have walked out of the theater exhilarated, but filled with questions about some huge decisions the filmmakers made in the film’s final moments.
Well now, you can read – in their own words – why they made the decisions they did, how it all came about and what it means to them. Suffice to say, if you haven’t seen The World’s End, click “Bookmark” at the top of your browser and come back because there are major spoilers coming. If you have seen the film, let’s boo boo.
