Second ‘Ant-Man’ Draft Is In, Says Joe Cornish

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about “Ant-Man” — the movie set to feature Marvel’s shrinking superhero as envisioned by stylistically distinctive writer and director Edgar Wright. As Wright himself said, Hank Pym’s lower profile within the Marvel Universe fortunately means means more creative attention and less deadline anxiety.

SuperHeroHype caught the first “Ant-Man” update since January’s news that Wright had resumed writing the script with Joe Cornish, whose festival-circuiting film “Attack the Block” stars frequent Wright collaborator Nick Frost.

Speaking at London’s first-ever Kapow! Comic Con this past Saturday, Cornish briefly updated attendees on the status of the “Ant-Man” script.

“We delivered the second draft of ’Ant-Man’ two days ago, and we’re really happy with it,” Cornish said.

With any “Ant-Man” project existing independently of Marvel’s full-steam-ahead production on all matters “Avengers,” there’s no telling how long it might be before we could see Hank Pym on the big screen. On the bright side, the film’s creative future appears to rest securely within Wright’s geek-revered hands.

Wright and Cornish clearly produce faith-inspiring output, as the two were tapped for work on Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s upcoming “The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of the Unicorn.”
