Edgar Wright has tweeted the first pre-production photo from Ant-Man!

Oct. 2, 2013by: Alex Maidy

With Marvel being as fan-focused as they are, it is always a great treat every time we get to see something new from any of their upcoming films. One project that we have been anticipating more than most is ANT-MAN. Edgar Wright whetted fans appetites with his Comic Con test footage two years ago and Disney then made the announcement that the movie would be moved up to Summer instead of Winter 2015.

We still have no casting announcements regarding ANT-MAN, but Edgar Wright tweeted the very exciting image below:

So, obviously someone is inside that ANT-MAN suit, but it doesn't necessarily mean it is the actor who will play the role. This could simply be the first stages of special effects testing for the production to see how the suit will perform on the big screen. The test footage already looked phenomenal, but this is surely going to give even that clip a run for it's money.

The time is approaching, people. We are going to find out who ANT-MAN is very soon, I can feel it. Even though this is just blue screen and the back of a suit, the movie is now really happening. I cannot wait for July 31, 2015 to get here.

Check out the image in full size glory below:

The problem with Simon Pegg is...

...apart from the blonde hair, he doesn't look a thing like Hank Pym.

Not that a dissimilar appearance has ever stopped a superhero movie casting director before, I'm just sayin'.

Edgar Wright initially said he wanted Hank Pym to be the creator of Ant Man but have Scott Lang be in the suit. Marvel rejected his first script but maybe, just maybe, the purpose of the test footage was to convince Marvel he knew what he was doing. I could see Nathan Fillion as Hank Pym and Simon Pegg as Scott Lang.

Wright on. Edgar's a director whose identity as a filmmaker probably will still show through all the big-studio gloss. For better or for worse, I felt Iron Man 3 was very clearly a Shane Black film; I think directors often have to sacrifice their vision or style for the company mandate and I hope Wright won't have to.

Hmm

As big of a comic book can as I am, I really don't know anything about Ant-Man. Is his character similar to the roll Pegg's type casted in? And I know I'm in the minority in here - I THOROUGHLY disliked The World's End (but love the first two of the trilogy, I think one of my main reasons I disliked it was Pegg's character being so unlikable) - but when I watched the fantastic action scenes, especially the first bathroom scene, I couldn't wait to watch AntMan. He shoots action scenes better

He shoots action scenes better than 95% of current movie directors.

Ant-Man, depending with what character they choose to wear the costume, could very well be played (he'd need to lose the British accent) by Simon Pegg. Not only could Pegg play him, but I think it would actually be a very good choice too. I hope they go with Hank Pym for the character as he's the first (and creator of the Pym particles) Ant-Man.

Sorry to burst your bubble beal, but Hank Pym is pretty much Simon Pegg's character in the World's End: a deluded asshole. So...take that as you will.

come on people....

come on..... ITS SIMON PEGG! Let's put two and two together. No question. He's got the acting chops for it and is getting more and more fit with the caliber of roles he's been doing. I love Nathon Fillion, but the man, I think, isn't up to it physically. Hasn't been for a while. But being proven wrong in that arena is something I welcome. But I'll bet a writing position at JoBlo that it Pegg.

Am I the only one who thinks Aaron Paul would be great in the role?

What is it IS Nathan Fillion?? Or Simon Pegg?

It could be NF because of his Emmy appearance, they were introducing him to a wider audience. Now he is known as the doofy looking guy who danced next to NPH. Or Simon Pegg, since he is a favorite to use by the director. They are also both unknown enough for this to be a secret. If is anyone big, we would have known by now. I mean come on, we already know who is playing the villain in Avengers 2, what movies will be in Phase 3 and Vin Diesel is doing something, we don't know what, but whatever.

So excited for this. I'm sure whoever Marvel casts will do a terrific job.

Excited for this as well, I admit I really didn't know how they'd pull this off until I saw the test footage. Very looking forward to this.
