The World, Edgar Wright has nevertheless spilled an interesting nugget of information regarding his take on the upcoming Ant-Man film.
Talking to Vanity Fair, Wright revealed that he will be approaching the material as “essentially a high-tech spy heist film with somebody with a very particular power.”
Accepting the challenges he faces, and the difficulties associated with ‘shrinking man’ material, the director added, “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.” It’s certainly nice to know that we’re not looking at Honey I Shrunk The Superhero.
While this is indeed an exciting possibility, there are still a few weeks until Wright will be free from his Pilgrim duties and another draft of the script still has to be written. As such, it might be a little premature to rule out other possibilities. Taking into account what happened to Edward Norton, Marvel still have an awfully long time to change their choice of director.
