It was announced at Comic-Con that Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man will indeed be apart of Phase Two. While it’s release date hasn’t been revealed it’s expected to come out sometime in 2014. Edgar is about to begin shooting World’s End in October with a possible Spring release. The production start for Ant-Man has been rumored to start after Thor: The Dark World wraps on the London stages. Giving the impression it will shoot while Captain America: The Winter Solider shoots stateside. Casting is expected to start heating up this Winter and I have a couple of ideas who should be placed in roles.

ALISON BRIE AS JANET VAN DYNE
RAFE SPALL AS ERIC O’GRADY
SIMON PEGG AS ELIHAS STARR
ALAN RICKMAN AS ULTRON
