With a wealth of Superhero movies in theatres and in the production pipeline there are still several that fans would love to see.

Director Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) has talked about the possibility of shooting an “Ant-Man” film periodically over the last several years.  Those familiar with Wright’s distinctive style responded with enthusiasm to the idea of the director helming a cinematic telling of the Marvel character’s tale. But the project has yet to really get off the ground.

The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed that Wright shot a test reel for the project in the hopes that it would encourage forward momentum.

There is no official word from Marvel on the chances of a green light for “Ant-Man”.

Here is what the director had to say about the project in an interview with SuperHeroHype some time ago.

"The idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both... Henry Pym and Scott Lang. So you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60's, in sort of 'Tales to Astonish' mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang's story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him."

We will keep you updated as details on the project emerge.
