Ant-Man: Edgar Wrighting 2nd Draft

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, director Edgar Wright revealed some interesting details about Marvel’s ANT-MAN…

“I’ve written a script, and once Scott Pilgrim is done I’m going to work on a second draft. It’s something I’ve been passionate about for awhile.”

Wright revealed that the Ant-Man film won’t be your typical superhero movie. He’s not so much a masked crimefighter, as a super spy.

“I know there’s a big stigma attached to it, mostly because every movie about shrinking has been about people in peril. I think it’d be great to do a shrinking film about a bad-ass secret agent… Even something like The Incredible Shrinking Man, which is a fantastic film, is about a guy in trouble. But this is going to be nothing like that. It’s essentially a high-tech spy heist film with somebody with a very particular power.”

At the very least, that’s putting an interesting and unique spin on the film that certain to draw some interest. For now, here’s what we know about Ant-Man. Henry Pym and Scott Lang will both feature into the story, with Lang appearing in a flashforward. In addition, Wright has been researching nanotechnology, so expect that to play a role in the film. In an interview with Empire, he said that the movie will not be a straight comedy, but “more of a full-on action adventure sci-fi film but with a comedic element.” Sadly though, Ant-Man will probably not feature into The Avengers, but you never know, there might be some subtle nudging or in-jokes; especially when you consider that both Pym and Lang were members of the Avengers at some point.
