Which Ant-Man Will Flash His Beady Eyes In Marvel's Movie?

The second draft of Marvel's Ant-Man movie is finished, but the question remains: which version of the shrinking superhero who talks to ants will we see in 2010? Will it be science-geek and abusive husband Dr. Henry Pym, who named the super-shrinking particles after himself? Murdered Avengers teammate and father Scott Lang? Or skeevy Eric O'Grady, who used his shrinking powers to watch Ms. Marvel in the shower?

Director Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead) explained to Piq Magazine that the film will be yet another superhero origins story but different, "because you've seen so many of them and we really tried to figure out a fresh take on that story. So it's definitely a Marvel film but it's got a little twist on it in terms of the way that it plays out."

In the past, Wright has mentioned that the film combines two major characters. My guess is Lang and O'Grady because this way Marvel can feature both the Avengers (which Lang was a member of) and super-spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. (which O'Grady worked for). Besides who doesn't want to see the creepy guy use his powers for his own dirty little mind, while trying to be a good guy on the side? Plus if Wright goes with the O'Grady story line, maybe we'll get to see him cross wits with old-timey thief the Black Fox. [Piq Magazine via Cinematical]
