Seemingly confirming earlier comments by Simon Pegg, Latino Review reports Ant-Man will move into Marvel’s London production offices once filming has wrapped on the Thor sequel, putting Edgar Wright’s long-developing film on track to become the studio’s third release of 2014.
With Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, the Disney/Marvel slate seems pretty full until 2015. However, Latino Review has a solid track record of Marvel scoops — much to the studio’s displeasure — which lends some credence to the timeline.
Thor: The Dark World goes in front of the camera next month, meaning principal photography will likely be finished by the end of the year. Wright’s next project, The World’s End, begins production in October.
Ant-Man has been in development at Marvel since at least 2006, when it was planned as part of the studio’s first wave of releases, alongside Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. After being assured repeatedly in recent months by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige that Ant-Man is “as close as it’s ever been,” the faithful Comic-Con International were finally rewarded earlier this month with a peek at a test reel showing Ant-Man taking out a couple of security guards. However, no release date was announced.
