Edgar Wright has finished directing an Ant-Man test reel. So what does this mean for potentially looping in one of the founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel movie universe? Marvel and Disney will now review Wright's footage, which he also co-wrote with Joe Cornish. If Marvel and Disney think the duo can pull off a feature length movie, the film may be getting the green-light, but don't expect any decisions to be made soon. We'll look toward New York Comic-Con in October as a potential moment when an announcement is made. [Slash Film]
