Joe Cornish, co-writer of the Ant-Man movie, revealed this today. When asked if the Ant Man script was based on any specific comic series or run. He said that it is definitely not Kirkman's and would not say any more.
Joe Cornish has revealed that he and Edgar Wright delivered* the “second draft” of Ant Man just two days ago [April 7] .
The "small" advancement that this "High-Tech Spy Heist Film" is taking is certainly exciting especially since Edgar Wright seems to be very dedicated to the project.
While we will not see Ant-Man in the nearing Avengers movie, we should expect to see one of the shrinking man's incarnations translated into the big screen soon. Although Cornish is a fan of Robert Kirkman, he did confirm the movie would not be on his run on the character. Any of you would like to take a guess at what comic book run it will be based off then? Which Ant-Man will it be?
Ant-Man is still a work in progress but it is nice to know there is work being done allowing proximity to it's realization.-- Geo (sora_thekey) 24/7 geek! -- Follow me on Twitter: @sora_thekey
