Ant-Man Marvel’s ANT-MAN Completes Principal Photography written by Sean Gerber December 5, 2014 Marvel’s ANT-MAN finished filming today with director Peyton Reed breaking the news on Twitter. And that’s it! Principal photography on ANT-MAN is now complete. The ants have left the building. Stay tuned… pic.twitter.com/xj5h9qFyo6 — Peyton Reed (@MrPeytonReed) December 6, 2014 Principal photography began in San Francisco, CA back on August 18 before moving to Atlanta, GA for the majority of the shoot. With all the talk of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON and Marvel’s Phase 3, ANT-MAN really has been the little guy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as of late. There are still plenty of doubters leftover from Edgar Wright’s departure, but with Reed directing a talented cast that includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll along with a script reworked by Adam McKay, there’s no sense in counting this one out. Besides, there’s never been any luck in betting against Marvel. Marvel’s ANT-MAN will arrive in theaters on July 17, 2015. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

June 24, 2015 Making Mine Marvel ANT-MAN Q&A July 29, 2015 ANT-MAN Confirmed or November 6, 2015 April 19, 2013 Michael Lalaian Call me naive, but I actually don’t have any concerns about this movie at all and am eagerly awaiting it. A few reasons why: 1. Marvel isn’t stupid. If it would have been a better and more marketable film (not that those two things are the same) with what Edgar Wright is doing, then they would have left him alone. I doubt Marvel and Disney would ever deliberately sabotage one of our own new properties by destabilizing it’s production. 2. Paul Rudd is a funny guy, clearly there will be some funny scenes in the movie. All Marvel needs to do is release a trailer that has Paul Rudd being funny with a tagline that says “From the studio that brought you Guardians of the Galaxy” and you just sold a hundred thousand movie tickets right there. Actually, coming so soon after Guardians is probably REALLY going to help out this film. 3. Cast and crew have talked about Ant-Man’s importance. While not using the word “better,” recently Evangeline Lilly even admitted that thew new version is going in a direction that is probably better than what Edgar Wright was doing. Also, Feige has not distanced himself from the project at all or tried to down play it, just a few months ago he was giving an interview and said that Ant-Man was a “key character,” then got even more specific and said “a key Avenger.” I think Ant-Man is going to be a player in the MCU for a long time to come. 4. Only fans have their doubts. Mainstream audiences either don’t know an Ant-Man movie is coming, or when they found out that it’s part of the Avengers/Guardians series, get really excited when I tell them about it. Even if mainstream audiences were iffy based on the production issues of this film, lowered expectations usually HELP a project, not hurt it. Of course, that all depends on there being a really kick ass trailer, but I don’t think putting one of those together will be a problem for Marvel. So yeah, bring on Ant-Man! T.J. Yeah, I’m also looking forward to this film. I’m very curious to see how it connects to the rest of the MCU. Reading some details from the people making the film, Ant-Man appears to be something of a Paul Harvey moment in the MCU’s timeline (“Here’s the rest of the story…”), and that seems interesting.
