Just hours after Ant-Man director Peyton Reed announced that Paul Rudd has completed shooting, the filmmaker revealed that principal photography has wrapped on the Marvel Phase Two adventure. You may recall that producer Kevin Feige revealed during the studio's press event in late October that Ant-Man is now the final movie of Phase Two, instead of the first Phase Three project as initially planned. It remains to be seen if Ant-Man will include some sort of tie-in to the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, the first of nine movies that will be included in Phase Three.
Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd star as scientist Hank Pym and master thief Scott Lang in Ant-Man, who join forces to pull off an elaborate heist that will save the world. The supporting cast is rounded out by Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, John Slattery, Neil Hamburger and Bobby Cannavale. Peyton Reed directs from a script originally written by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, with revisions by Adam McKay, Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer.
Now that production has officially wrapped, the waiting game begins for the first footage and new photos to be released. The next Marvel Studios movie to hit theaters is Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, with Ant-Man following close behind on July 17, 2015. When do you think we'll get to see our first official look at Ant-Man footage? Chime in with your thoughts below.
