Stan Lee Raises Our Hopes For An Edgar Wright Ant-Man Action Movie

You may be excited about Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but we're even more stoked about his much-rumored, Disney-produced Ant-Man film. And Stan Lee has once again ignited that excitement.

Today Stan Lee twittered three bits of Ant-Man news:

To make up for my previous grievous error, here's a little item that may have escaped you. Marvel is prepping a movie starring— Ant Man!

- I had lunch with the cool, young director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and, as you'd imagine, we had fun discussing the tiny hero."

- Ant Man is just one of the many wild treats Marvel has planned for you, such as Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Black Panther and more, more, more!"


Which leads us all to believe that the Ant-Man movie is, at the very least, finally being discussed in Hollywood. Granted, Lee and Wright are merely talking about the film, but we'd like to think there's some hope for the comic book movie adaptation, what with Lee taking to Twitter multiple times.

There's been so many rumors about this film. First, people speculated about Disney's, or maybe even Pixar's, involvement, which turned out to be more wishful thinking at the time.


Wright's interest, however been buzzed about for years. And it's good to see that 3 years later Lee and Wright are at least discussing the possibility of bringing Henry Pym to life. Though we bet it's going to be a long road until any decisions are made.
