A look at all the Marvel movies (and TV shows) currently in development [Updated]

Ant-Man (July 17, 2015)

Ant-Man-Teaser-Trailer-3You can credit the birth of this film primarily to Edgar Wright, who was so adamant about wanting to make this movie that he created a short sizzle reel showing how it would look visually. The reaction was so strong that it isn’t just an Ant-Man film, it is Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. It will also kick off Marvel’s Phase Three.

The story will show a different side of the Marvel Universe and a comedic take of the superhero genre. The plot is still being kept quiet, but it will feature both the original Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas), and the current Ant-Man, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd).
