Fans lucky enough to attend Marvel's Hall H presentation at Comic-Con this year got their long anticipated first look at Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man." The filmmaker unveiled test footage from his planned adaptation of the shrinking superhero, and all accounts point to it being a roaring success. But with no release date in sight, "Ant-Man" remains a far-off dream without a single frame of footage for the wider populace to turn to for comfort.
That might not be the case for long, thankfully. Omelete caught up with Marvel's Victoria Alonso recently, who confirmed that the studio is seeking ways to refine Wright's test footage and show it to the public at large.
"What we showed at Comic-Con was a work in progress," she said. "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."
Pretty fantastic news, no? Beyond the footage, Alonso hinted that Wright might be ready to actually make the movie very soon.
“Edgar is on board to do it. He’s going to do one movie before," she said. "He wrote a great script and we’re hoping that he will come and work with us.”
