Edgar Wright Teams Up With Pixar For Astonishing Ant-Man

04.01.2010

In a partnership that does nothing if not melt my brain, director, Edgar Wright will write and direct the big screen adaptation of THE ASTONISHING ANT-MAN for Pixar Animation Studios. It will be the first collaboration between Marvel Entertainment and Disney since The Mouse-House acquired the super hero universe in August of last year for $4 billion. The film is set for Summer of 2013 and will be produced by animation Golden Boy, Brad Bird (THE INCREDIBLES).

Rumors were running wild after the two companies joined forces that Pixar had their eye on ANT-MAN but Wright insisted he was still attached to the project. Seems they were both telling the truth. In a statement issued early this morning, Wright had this to say: "I've had a passionate vision for ANT-MAN in my head for years, and now I have the greatest studio in the world helping me make it a reality." When asked about his thoughts, creator, Stan Lee added, "I couldn't be happier with Edgar teaming up with Marvel and Pixar. This one is going to be special!"

This is obviously a huge dagger into the hearts of fans hoping Ant-Man would play a part in the planned AVENGERS film in 2012. He was, after all, an original member of the team in the comics and kills another opportunity to add one more big name actor into the mix (Tom Cruise was rumored at one time).

"Tom Cruise was rumored . . ."

Now that would be an interesting casting choice. They wouldn't even need to do much special effects. He is already short enough to fit the role!

What A Relief

I actually wanted this to be an April Fool's joke because I didn't like the idea of a Pixar produced "Ant-Man". It would be great to see a collaboration between Edgar Wright and Pixar, but I would rather see a different film not associated with such a pointless "super hero." Though, admittedly, Pixar could do a film from an Ant's perspective in an interesting way--oh wait, they already have. Maybe Flik can make a cameo! No, it is better for this to not be made, in my opinion. Pixar should

Though, admittedly, Pixar could do a film from an Ant's perspective in an interesting way--oh wait, they already have. Maybe Flik can make a cameo! No, it is better for this to not be made, in my opinion. Pixar should be focused on more interesting films, maybe even Incredibles 2. An Edgar Wright directed Incredibles 2 would be news that I would regret learning is false.

Of course, I knew this was fake when I saw the source on the article was Joblo.com, with no outside source to back it up. I admit I looked it up, but mostly because I feared the possibility it was true. I do miss Joblo's April Fool's article that he wrote in the past. What happened to that? I was eagerly anticipating it and am disappointed to not see it here. I miss it.

Damn you Joblo, at least post a fake news story on something we don't want to happen. Like five more Twilight films or some bullshit like that. This is just cruel...
