Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios are developing a feature film based on the longtime Avengers comic book character with Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) attached to direct. Ant-Man is the name of several fictional characters appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. The character was originally the superhero persona of Henry Pym, a brilliant scientist who invented a substance that allowed him to change his size. After Pym retired his Ant-Man identity, successors Scott Lang and Eric O'Grady have used his technology to take on the role. At last year's Comic-Con International in San Diego, director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige debuted the official Ant-Man title card and showed a demo reel of footage. »
