The twelfth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name, Henry Pym and Scott Lang, is directed by Edgar Wright.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Edgar Wright opens up about upcoming American superhero film, Ant-Man:
“I want to make him into a badass [laughs]. No, I always liked that comic and I always thought it would be an interesting thing to see in live-action.
That’s why I [showed] that Comic-Con test (video above) that we did for Marvel, to show this fight scene like a proof of content, like this is what the action is going to look like. I think a lot of people who maybe don’t know the character sort of see that test and go, “Oh, right, I get it. It’s like an action film,” so that’s the idea.
I think people will be surprised by what kind of movie it is, and so in that respect it’s something that I know is going to stand out because it’s got a very different story and is a very different movie.”
ET asked him about the tone of the film, He said: “Well, I think the Marvel movies are funny, you know? I think generally the Iron Man films and The Avengers is funny. They’re not ever in the comedy section, but they are funny and entertaining, so I think it’ll be something in a similar vein to that.”
“Biochemist Dr. Hank Pym uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.”
Ant-Man is scheduled to be released on July 31, 2015.
