With Edgar Wright now working away on Marvel’s ANT-MAN, the director has been speaking to Entertainment Tonight about what he’s got in mind for the tale of Henry Pym.

Wright said, “I want to make him into a badass. No, I always liked that comic and I always thought it would be an interesting thing to see in live-action. That’s why I showed that Comic-Con test that we did for Marvel, to show this fight scene like a proof of content, like this is what the action is going to look like. I think a lot of people who maybe don’t know the character sort of see that test and go, ‘Oh, right, I get it. It’s like an action film,’ so that’s the idea. I think people will be surprised by what kind of movie it is, and so, in that respect, it’s something that I know is going to stand out because it’s got a very different story and is a very different movie.”

On the tone of the film, the writer/director added, “Well, I think the Marvel movies are funny, you know? I think generally the IRON MAN films and THE AVENGERS is funny. They’re not ever in the comedy section, but they are funny and entertaining, so I think it’ll be something in a similar vein to that.”

At present, ANT-MAN is scheduled at a 31st July, 2015 film.
