This morning, Edgar WrightTweeted a preview of his forthcoming Ant-Man film along with the announcement that he’s returned to LA because it’s “high time” for him to complete the project.
The film will launch “Phase Three” of Marvel’s new superhero movie universe, as The Dissolve points out. Though details about Ant-Man’s plotline are still sparse, Wright has stated publicly that the film will feature the Dr. Hank Pym character, best known as Ant-Man of the comic book series.
In the series, Dr. Hank Pym is a scientist who uses shrinking technology to transform himself into the ant-sized superhero. Ant-Man will also feature Scott Lang, a character who steals Pym’s costume and co-opts the Ant-Man persona later in the comic book series.
The film is currently set for a July 31, 2015 release.
