Could Both 'ANT-MAN' And 'WORLD'S END' Shoot In 2012?

Edgar Wright recently announced plans to shoot World's End this September with a possible release in Spring 2013. This lead to thoughts of the production for Ant-Man being yet again delayed. It was odd since rumblings from Kevin Feige gave the impression Ant-Man was going to be announced as the next Marvel film. Not to mention that Wright tweeted an Ant-Man painting days before World's End was revealed as his next film. Word from a recent chat with Edgar during an Empire podcast along with a quote from SlashFilm (in bold) gives the impression some footage and even full scenes for Ant-Man could also be shot this year. Speculation lead us to believe that Ant-Man could be that mystery film slated for May 2014 but that isn't for-sure just yet.

"Things are happening, and other things are happening on other things as well. There’s some interesting plates spinning and I ideally hope I’ll be shooting this year....So as not to jinx things, I am going to remain spectacularly vague on this. Let’s just say I hope to shoot some Antman and World’s End this year."

Nothing seems to be set in stone here but it sounds very promising. Perhaps this could be a sizzle-reel for Comic-Con 2013 or Comic-Con 2012 which would reveal the cast along with Edgar's vision for the film. Edgar also rightly tells fans to chill out about how long it's been taking considering it takes three years for each of his films to be made. It's understandable considering he's been hounded about Ant-Man for eight years by interviewers and fans-alike.

"I get quite superstitious because I don’t feel like anybody reading magazines and websites and stuff — quite understands how hard long it takes. Because the film websites update hourly, it’s like ‘What’s the fucking hold up? Just make it. Why isn’t it coming out tomorrow?’ But every film that I’ve made has taken like three years. Each one, it’s been three years between movies. I would love for that gap to be shorter, but the truth is there’s — it’s almost like a holding pattern. There are planes in the air and you have to figure out which one is going to land before they all crash like Die Hard 2."
