    From Screen Rant

    These were Iron Man 3 - the focus of this panel – followed by Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. But what about Ant-Man said panel moderator Geoff Boucher (Hero Complex)? Edgar Wright came out on stage, the fans went wild, and they screened the test footage he shot a few weeks ago. It was entirely unfinished but he asked the fans if they are sure they want to see it in that state and of course the building went nuts.

    So, what was shown in the short clip?

    Opening shot pans down from inside a vent looking down a brightly lit hallway, lined with silver colored panels. Inside the vent is a very small Ant-Man looking down the hallway to a door at the end, guarded by two men in suits.
    Angle changes to corridor looking up to vent and we see little Ant-Man jumping down, changing size to normal as the armed men pull out side-arms to shoot.
    Ant-Man shrinks, jumps up and we see a slow-mo shot of him punching the guard to his in the mouth.
    Ant-Man goes full size as he engages the second guard, shrinks again as he jumps and grabs the guard’s tie, going full-size as he goes over and using the momentum to flip the guard over his should through a glass window.
    Ant-Man, then patiently walks and enters the elevator door as a few more glass bits fall from the window.
    Ant-Man’s costume concealed his face entirely but is very similar to the books (seen above and below). When he transforms, he phases and instantly becomes the other size. It was a pure action sequence and showcases how Ant-Man can be a very cool and unique spy for SHIELD. His abilities are very unique and he’s a trained operative. Wright said after the footage: “Ant-Man will kick you ass one inch at a time.”

    With what was done in so little time, and without finished effects, any dialogue or even an actor, what was shown proves that Ant-Man can work. If they’re willing to make Rocket Raccoon a reality in Guardians of the Galaxy, the Ant-Man character will get his time to shine.

    It's the dialogue that concerns me. I'm not a fan of Joe Cornish as a Writer and Director, so I'm glad Edgar Wright is the Director for this one. There is still plenty of material to work with for this one.

    I'd prefer it as another Avengers tie in, which I don't think is happening. I'd have had it as his origin story for his powers, then introduce Ultron. The whole origin of Ultron could be left as a twist for people not familiar. Maybe even throw in The Vision. There are certainly enough elements there that you could fit the Avengers movie universe if you had to.

    Though in a way, I'm almost glad they aren't as it gives them a lot more flexibility. Will certainly be interesting.

    It probably will be. Hank Pym is an obvious choice for a new character in Avengers 2 given his status as a founding member in the comics, and the timing is right. I reckon Ultron will be the villain in Avengers 3 (Thanos in Avengers 2 after being introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy, some Ultron hints in Ant-man 2, Ultron as villain in Avengers 3).

    Who's Ant Man then?
  • Deleted user 15 October 2012 22:05:47
    He can make himself small.

    Hardly something that'll make men around the world envy him for.

    He is an incredibly shit 'hero'. Between this and the shit with a raccoon and talking tree, marvel have got down to dregs pretty quickly.

    The next few years will make everyone so sick of superhero movies they'll go into another two-decade hiatus.

    Who's the baddie, Magnifying Glassman?

  • Deleted user 15 October 2012 22:27:57
    As long of them get a bit further than good guy vs bad guy and have some sort of depth to them then I might be interested. Given the entire marvel catalogue is aimed at 12 year olds who like explosions and little more then that won't happen.
  • Deleted user 15 October 2012 22:33:15
    Depth in a superhero movie is like asking for maturity and narrative in a videogame. Those that even have the slightest glimmer will be heralded as the highest pinnacle of the medium, whilst simultaneously being several fathoms below the standard of everything else.

    I don't even mind good guy vs. bad guy if it's well played and they have cool powers. Being able to shrink is a pretty shit power as these things go.

    Pftt, have you not seen Grandpa In My Pocket.

    All I took from Grandpa In My Pocket is that James Bolam is a sociopath.

    The dregs?

    Founding member of the Avengers, creator of Ultron...

    The dregs for people who aren't Marvel fans maybe, but he's one of the most-loved Avengers in the history of that comic.

    Well, if he is the creator of Ultron then that changes everything.

    Get bent.

    The dregs for characters that are shit.

    Ant Man? ANT MAN!!?? What kind of a world do we live in where a man dressed as an ANT, gets all of my press?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

  • Deleted user 15 October 2012 23:56:22
    The dregs for people who aren't obsessives - IE, 95% of the cinemagoing public.

    Just remember, loads of people were going "who the fuck is Iron Man?" when the movie was announced. And arguably he's a billion times more prominent than Ant Man.

    You guys are crazy, Ant Man is by far the best ant-based Avenger.

    Get bent.
