So, with Wright’s adaptation of “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” wrapped, the question now becomes: will the filmmaker turn his attention to Hank Pym next?
“I can’t do two things at once, so [now that ’Scott Pilgrim’ is finished] I will return to doing another draft of that one,” Wright told MTV News.
According to Wright, there’s no timetable for the film, only the desire to come up with a good script to establish the character. We know the hero is on Marvel’s movie wish list, but whether the scientist-turned-superhero will eventually have a place on the “Avengers” roster isn’t a concern at this stage, he said.
“Because that character isn’t one of their biggest properties, it’s not like a tentpole deadline,” explained Wright. “”It’s more like me and Kevin [Feige] [saying], ’Let’s make a really good script.’ We’ve always agreed on that — ’Lets make a good script that works, that’s all about
a great genre film, and that isn’t necessarily relying on anything else.'”
“It should be a great genre film, so that’s why I did a first draft,” he said.
Wright also joked that Marvel’s ambitious plans for Ant-Man and the rest of their characters are a subject he has to be very careful saying too much about — under penalty of death.
“I cannot confirm or deny anything,” he laughed. “I’ll get killed. … It’s snipers, they’ll kill me!”
“Make sure you put that in there,” he said. “The snipers will kill me.”
