At their San Diego Comic Con panel this year, Ant-Man director Edgar Wright surprised and delighted fans by walking out on the stage. He then offered a special treat: showing the test footage he recently filmed for his dream of a live-action Ant-Man movie.
As reported by Screenrant reporter Rob Keyes, here's what the footage offered:
"So, what was shown in the short clip?
"Opening shot pans down from inside a vent looking down a brightly lit hallway, lined with silver colored panels. Inside the vent is a very small Ant-Man looking down the hallway to a door at the end, guarded by two men in suits.
"Angle changes to corridor looking up to vent and we see little Ant-Man jumping down, changing size to normal as the armed men pull out side-arms to shoot.
"Ant-Man shrinks, jumps up and we see a slow-mo shot of him punching the guard to his in the mouth.
"Ant-Man goes full size as he engages the second guard, shrinks again as he jumps and grabs the guard’s tie, going full-size as he goes over and using the momentum to flip the guard over his should through a glass window.
"Ant-Man, then patiently walks and enters the elevator door as a few more glass bits fall from the window.
"Ant-Man’s costume concealed his face entirely but is very similar to the books (seen above and below). When he transforms, he phases and instantly becomes the other size. It was a pure action sequence and showcases how Ant-Man can be a very cool and unique spy for SHIELD. His abilities are very unique and he’s a trained operative. Wright said after the footage: 'Ant-Man will kick you ass one inch at a time.'"
While Marvel did go on the record for release dates for several other movies that they have in development, they chose to remain non-committal about when they might greenlight Ant-Man, and what year Wright's film would come out.- Screenrant. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Yesterday AMC's blogger in residence John Campea tweeted this interesting string of 140 characters: "Take this for what its worth, but I was just told Adrien Brody is most likely going to be Ant Man for Edgar Wright."
Marvel Studios is having several presentation panels and signing events taking place later this week at the San Diego Comic-Con, including a possible announcement of who will star in The Avengers movie. Could Brody be among the names given during Marvel's Saturday panel?- John Campea via Twitter. Comment on this Scoop (0)
