It has been reported that Marvel are closer than they have ever been to making a big screen adaptation of the comic book hero Ant-Man. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that he is in regular contact with writer Edgar Wright and progress has been promising.
Feige explained to Bleeding Cool
, "I'll just say it's closer than it's ever been in its long maybe eight-year history, and I usually e-mail Edgar every two or three days and over those eight years it's got further away and closer.”
He added, "We are now closer than we've ever been, so I hope it will come together shortly." It was reported late last year, that Scott Pilgrim vs the World director Edgar Wright and his co writer Joe Cornish had delivered a brand new draft of their Ant-Man script.
Marvel are currently in the process of delivering a number of movie sequels but it seems that they are keen to get some new Marvel characters adapted for the big screen. As well as Ant-Man, there has previously been talk of a Black Panther movie, an Inhumans movie and a Guardians of the Galaxy film.
