[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5508:]]The Ant-Man movie is a couple years off, but we get some small bits of information from writer/director Edgar Wright.

Wright penned the script with Joe Cornish (Attack The Block) and offered that in their Ant-Man movie, the origin will be slightly different.

"It’s a way of doing a superhero film within another genre," Wright told IGN. "I wanted to tell an origin tale in a slightly different way. It’s part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but it also feels like its own piece."

As the Ant-Man movie is about a Marvel superhero achieving a literal small stature, Wright says to no surprise that there will be big effects and also that the delay in getting the movie done may have been a bonus.

"But to be honest, the later I do it, it feels like I could learn more, especially about special effects. It’s a big effects movie, so I’m pleased to go into it having done Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End because you’re always learning more about that side," he said.

Wright also mentioned the Ant-Man test footage that was revealed at last Summer's Comic-Con, and said previously to what we have heard before, that maybe it will eventually come out in a completed form.

"I hope that at some point we’ll be able to show that at some venue all finished," Wright said. "Because obviously at Comic-Con we showed it unfinished. All done it looks really good.”

Speaking of the footage, an artist present at the SDCC whipped up a video of his own based on what he saw.

The Ant-Man movie premiers on November 6, 2015 as part of the Marvel Studios Phase 3 plans.
