If everything checks out, this means that Marvel’s new “three films a year” strategy will be coming to fruition, with Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier joining Ant-Man as the three films for 2014.
Once principal photography on Thor: The Dark World finishes up, Ant-Man will head to Marvel’s London branch and start shooting. Seeing as the Thor sequel is looking to head in front of cameras in August, Ant-Man could likely begin its filming by Spring 2013, if not earlier.
Once again, this isn’t confirmed yet by Marvel but Latino Review is usually pretty good with their rumors. So, for now, I’ll say that this is likely true. Plus, everything we’ve been hearing for the past few months has led us to believe that Marvel wants to push the film into production quickly, especially since the reaction to the test footage at Comic-Con was so positive.
Now the only question that remains is, who will play the titular hero and better yet, when can we expect some casting announcements?
I’m guessing that it shouldn’t be too long now before we hear which actor will be the newest addition to Marvel’s ever-growing universe. And when we do, we’ll be sure to let you know.
