As fanboys, comic book lovers and more descend upon San Diego for the start of Comic-Con today, it means a crushing rollout of teases, glimpses and hints of upcoming projects big and small. And certainly one of the most buzzed is Marvel‘s “Ant-Man” which finds the studio in a rare position of being on the back foot after the sudden departure of Edgar Wright. But fans shouldn’t worry too much as apparently some of the visual sequences he dreamed up may be seen in new director Peyton Reed‘s movie.
Chatting with Slashfilm, Kevin Feige was asked if Wright had storyboarded his version of the movie and if some of those elements might be retained. “Yeah. It wasn’t the whole movie and there are new elements in the movie obviously, now, that [Wright] was not involved in,” he explained. “But there are some segments that are awesome and will be brought to life in some incarnation. Peyton [Reed] certainly has all that material and is a talented enough and a secure enough guy to notice if something is really cool and go ‘No reason to change that, that’s great.’ Or if he’s got his own spin on something to go and adapt it from there.”
It’s an interesting response, and given that Reed is walking into a movie that has less than year now before it needs to be in the can and on the big screen, we’d wager he’ll certainly be working from materials Wright left behind. We’ll see how it turns out on July 17, 2015. Comic-Con poster below via EW.
