Marvel Comics fans who’ve been clamoring for Edgar Wright to get to the insect-like business of writing “Ant-Man” may have a reason to feel happy. The director this week picked up the pen on the movie’s script for the first time in more than two years.

Wright, who came on in 2006 to write and direct a take on the arthropodal superhero, said Tuesday in an interview with 24 Frames that with much of the international promotion for “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” now behind him, he’s free again to write on “Ant-Man” — the first time he’ll do that since he started developing “Pilgrim.” (He had previously written a first draft of the script.)

In fact, the director had just come from a dinner meeting with Marvel production head Kevin Feige, where the subject of the offbeat Marvel property was in the air.

THERE’S MORE; READ THE REST.
