Report: Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Already Secures Greenlight From Marvel


Words have run rampant during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival that the long-gestating superhero movie project has been greenlit by Marvel Studios following the success of 'The Avengers'.

Director Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" movie project may not die just yet. Twitch has revealed that there has been a swirling rumor at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival that the long-gestating superhero film project has already been granted the greenlight by Marvel Studios following the massive success of "The Avengers".

Further details of the long-awaited "Ant-Man" movie are still scarce for now, but it has been said that Marvel president Kevin Feige is eager to move forward with the project. Twitch additionally reported via Twitter, "Rumblings in #Cannes are that @edgarwright's ANT MAN has been greenlit. #rumor."

Wright himself is currently working on "The World's End" along with British thesp Simon Pegg. Though so, some people have been speculating that the filmmaker will begin filming "Ant-Man" either at the end of 2012 or sometime in 2013. Should the report be true, Marvel and Walt Disney Pictures are expected to make an official announcement soon.

"Ant-Man" has been in development for years, but no updates have ever been shared since 2 years ago. Feige recently told Toronto Sun that the long postponement was the reason why Ant-Man was excluded from "The Avengers".

"Edgar's still working on that [Ant-Man] project, and it's closer than ever," Feige said. "But it's been eight years we've been working with him, and we finally decided we couldn't keep putting more people in. If Ant-Man had come out four years ago, it would certainly have been part of the puzzle."

"Ant-Man" follows biochemist Dr. Hank Pym who uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.
