Ant-Man and Edgar Wright, together again

0

I unabashedly love Edgar Wright.Shaun of the Dead is my favorite movie of all time. Hot Fuzz is easily just outside of my top 10. Scott Pilgrim was a flashy, visual trip through the fever dreams of a comic and video game nerd. Spaced is a cult classic of a television show that launched careers. Most importantly, he brought us all Simon Pegg.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I also love comics. While Ant-Man/Giant Man/Goliath/Yellowjacket/Wasp might not make it into my top five favorite characters, the size-changing, pimp-slapping Avenger cum Scientist Supreme is one of the founding Avengers, and that counts for something.

The news that Edgar Wright is back to writing the script for an Ant-Man movie pleases me to no end. It’s been in the works for a while (he came on around 2006), but the prospect of bridging the gap between two of my favorite things (Edgar Wright and Marvel comics) would be a dream come true. Now that Scott Pilgrim is behind him and The Adventures of Tin-Tin due out in December, hopefully that will give Wright some free time, not only for Ant-Man but for the third entry of the
