Watch Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man Test Footage

Ant Man Comic Book

Oft-talked about but rarely seen (unless you were at Comic Con the year it was shown to attendees, that is), here’s that short (less than a minute long) test footage (aka proof of concept) that Edgar Wright shot to convince the Marvel brass that he could pull off an “Ant-Man” movie.

It’s on YouTube and according to the person who posted it, was recently shown again at something called “The Best of BUG” in London today. The quality is, of course, pretty crappy, but it’s what you’ve been waiting to see for a while now, so get to seeing it before Marvel has it yanked.

As for the movie itself, Marvel currently has it scheduled for 2015, which is still 2 years away, and apparently Wright already has the script finished with Joe Cornish (of “Attack the Block” fame). Since Marvel has given the film an official release date, that means the movie is definitely happening. Probably.

By the way, who knew a guy in an “ant” helmet could be so cool? I gotta say, it’s a lot better than I had expected. The whole zooming in and out of ant-size was really well done and would definitely look impressive on the big screen.

Update New versions below. (Note: I have no control over the ad that plays before the vid. That comes with the player’s host, not our site.)

    Ok, so personally I was pretty disapointed when I found out that Marvel/Disney were wasting their efforts in an Ant-Man movie, I really was wishing and hoping for some Sentry instead, but then I saw this and I can honestly say that I am 100,000,000% behind this. That was incredibly bad ass …

      You may not like him but Ant-Man has been around and for a long time, is a founding Avenger, and has endured despite not being a big name. Sentry on the other hand was was a good complex charatcer, but never quite got off the ground the way he should’ve. Which is why they ultimately had to kill him off. Yeah this definitely made the character viable.

    Looks good! At first mention he may not be appealing and I can understand that of the hundreds of heroes from Marvel they decided to make Ant-Man, but I would def watch this. Add a good narrative and I’ll be adding this to my Marvel Bluray collection.

    Thezooming in and out was cool, but did you pay attention at the sound? Don’t know if it was because of the crapy recording from a screen, but it felt like the sound was 10 times bigger like you wher 10 times smaller, make it even more cool. Ants don’t have ears, but ant man still does. So I guess that’s how it woulf feel. Smaller animals don’t have better years then us?
