A while ago, we reported news about Ant-Man
and screening of its test reel (that Edgar Wright
filmed in last June) on San Diego Comic-Con. Now, Marvel executive Victoria Alonso has revealed that the mentioned reel is being cleaned up for a possible release. Hit the jump for more.
“What we showed at Comic-Con was a work in progress. We’re working on finishing it, and I think you might see it. Not sure where, but we always listen to the fans. And if the fans demand it we make sure they get it. I don’t know if we are going to post it online, but I don’t have any reason to believe we may not.”
Alonso reassured fans that Edgar Wright will direct, and that he’ll most likely begin working on Ant-Man once he finishes his Blood and Ice Cream trilogy with Simon Pegg
and Nick Frost
. It began when the trio worked on Shaun of the Dead, then Hot Fuzz and will conclude with The World’s End.
She also addressed a rumor that came from a Twitter account which claimed that Viggo Mortensen
was in negotiations to play Doctor Strange.
“We would love to work with Viggo Mortensen. I’ve been trying that for years. But I don’t know if Viggo is even acting anymore. I thought he wasn’t acting anymore. It would be great to work with him in the future, but we don’t have him signed, no.”
