Ant-Man Movie Test Footage Info and Possible Public Release Detailed by Marvel Studios Executive
Monday, September 17, 2012
There are still plenty of questions that are unanswered about Marvel Studios' Ant-Man movie, which will be written and directed by Edgar Wright. Fortunately, Marvel co-president Louis D'Esposito spoke with the website FilmJunkies.de (via Comic Book Movie) and provided some details.
When asked about Wright's Ant-Man test reel, and whether it'd be available for everyone to see, D'Esposito reasurred, 'Yes, I think so. Edgar is just adding the finishing touches and then we will once again make the final visual effects editing. The process is almost complete. Then we will decide when and how we can make it available to the fans. We are more than happy with it. He's a great filmmaker and we look forward to."
D'Esposito continued, "I was there when he made the test reel. I now know how it works and it's going very methodical and planned. First, he designed the concept, then the storyboard, then he produced an animatic, so he knows exactly what he'll turn. Every morning we visited him, and he had added new material, which we then looked at together. He is a passionate filmmaker and it that's contagious. We've only looked at it yesterday and every time we see it, then we think, ‘Wow! We can not wait to make this film!’"
On the subject of the actual Ant-Man film, which is rumored to begin filming next year after director Edgar Wright completes At World's End, the interviewer then asked D'Esposito if the tiny hero will fit into Marvel's “Phase 2” slate, in which he replied, “I'm not sure, so I can not make a definitive statement. Once we know the more accurate schedule, we will make this announcement publicly.”
Sooo ... when is it coming out? We can't wait to see this!
