Thereâ€™ve been a couple of articles out about Edgar Wright and an Ant-Man movie. First off, good choice for a director. Second off, for all the Ant-Man haters, piss off. If Hank Pym is the problem, make it Scott Lang or even Eric Oâ€™Grady to avoid the crap that both the regular stream and Ultimate universe Pym has all over him. Itâ€™s a movie, of course, so we could avoid the wife-beating issue (much less prominent in mainstream Marvel vs. Ultimates), but whatever. It doesnâ€™t matter the name of the character, because while it may look very similar to the comics Ant-Man, itâ€™s not going to be that guy.
Why? Well because Mr. Wright indicates his Ant-Man is a bad ass secret agent who happens to also have the shrinking powers. That is pretty cool, and it would be nice if this secret agent were also a science nerdâ€”like Hank Pymâ€”rather than just an amusing jack assâ€”like Eric Oâ€™Grady. Iâ€™d also like the character to have the more modern Ant-Man suit and powers, those from the recent (and, of course, cancelled) the Irredeemable Ant-Man.
This movie isnâ€™t even close to production, and who knows if itâ€™ll even get there. The only thing that I would accept sidetracking this project would be an Iron Fist project (or possible a Heroes for Hire with Iron Fist as a main character).
