Kevin Feige Hopeful Ant-Man Will Happen Soon

BleedingCool was able to speak with Marvel's Kevin Feige who calls the shots when to comes the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Marvel Studios. He gives another encouraging statement on Ant-Man which has Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim) attached to direct. The film is co-written by Joe Cornish (Attack The Block) and Wright, the pair previously worked together on the script for Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn.

"It’s somewhere. I’ll just say it’s closer than it’s ever been in its long maybe eight year history, and I usually e-mail Edgar every two or three days and over those eight years its got further away and closer… we are now closer than we’ve ever been. So I hope it will come together shortly."

Wright's other projects could conflict with him directing Ant-Man as he's also lined up Baby Driver, World's End starring Nick Frost/Simon Pegg and Disney's The Night Stalker which stars Johnny Depp. I wouldn't be surprised to see Joe Cornish end up taking over directing duties on the superhero film.
