Marvel is continuing to announce new media projects it seems every month with the scope of their properties being explored expanding just as fast. We already know that Edgar Wright is working on an Ant-Man movie, so artist Obery Nicolas decided to go ahead and create a poster for the film. While he was at it he went ahead and created a Black Panther poster for when that film is eventually announced.
Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Studios have announced that it is moving the release date of Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man movie.
Simon Pegg spent some time at the Marvel offices yesterday, and had to tweet some pics out just to show off that he was there. A trio of pics have surfaced, one of which lends itself to rumors of why Simon was there. Take the jump to figure that out.
Many of us would naturally think that Marvel has a long-term plan when it comes to their movie-verse, but would you think they have it planned out till 2021? Or, that The Avengers was planned out in 2006? Kevin Feige dropped knowledge like that and more in a recent interview and we have highlights for you after the jump.
Edgar Wright brought the idea of an Ant-Man movie to Marvel and it apparently had so much potential they decided to throw it into the new Marvel Movie Universe. It seems that early footage of the film has leaked on to the Internet, so hurry up and watch the video before the suits yank it down!
UPDATE: Less than an hour and Disney has taken it down. Sorry, but if you saw it, you now have an idea of what Edgar Wright is planning.
UPDATE 2: Vimeo has the video now, so you have yet another chance to watch the video.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Ant-Man and The Wasp #1 written and drawn by Tim Seeley.
Edgar Wright is right in the middle of putting the finishing touches on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, then he’ll be off promoting the heck out of the film. After that, the writer/director will be working on Ant-man for Marvel, but until the current movie wraps, he can only give fans a rough idea of the film.
During the D23 Expo held in Anaheim this past weekend, John Lasseter quashed rumors that Pixar was looking at Marvel’s Ant-Man for a possible movie.
“I had met all the folks from Marvel a couple of times and they’re terrific,” says Lasseter, a man of few words regarding Pixar’s interest in Marvel properties, “The whole ‘Ant-Man’ thing is just a rumor.”
Not off the table is the possibility that Monsters, Inc. and the Incredibles would be returning to the big screen with sequels for each.

Of all the things that I whine about regarding Civil War, the one aspect that doesn’t bug me is the insistence that it affects every single facet of life in the Marvel Universe. I’ve always thought that if you’re going to do a huge mega-crossover, you may want to have it affect somebody. I remember the days of the Infinity Gauntlet-War-Crusade-Jamboree, and how I kept seeing my guy Nova on the cover of the books, and hearing rumors that he died or something, but seeing little to no mention of it in New Warriors or his own book. I’d say being rendered into my component elements by a 9 foot purple guy would be worth comment, y’think? With “Choosing Sides,” we see some of the less obvious effects of the ongoing chaos on the denizens of the Marvel Universe. Are you sitting comfortably?
