Supposedly they're filming in San Francisco and Atlanta. Obviously there's at least a scene in San Francisco, but I wonder if Atlanta is a stand-in or if it's only partially set out west.

From what I'm hearing Hope Pym, while Hank/Janet's daughter, will onscreen essentially be the classic Janet Van Dyne Wasp in all but name & relation to Hank. So there's that at least.

I'm wondering if they're doing that so they can do a Ant-Man\Wasp relationship without it being Hank and Janet.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Was hoping that we might've gotten some official pics or a small teaser at NYCC for Ant-Man. Not sure what the next best publicity blitz will be, other than AoU in May. I'd guess we get something before May.

Perhaps the Marvel Special that is going to air on ABC during sweeps, November 4th? The special is called Marvel 75 years: From Pulp to Pop

What we did get from NYCC is the announcement of a new ongoing monthly Ant-Man title starting in January with Scott Lang as the lead. Scott has never headlined an ongoing as Ant-Man and it's clear it's meant to tie in peripherally with the film, at least as far as the lead.

I'm guessing that lots of stage work is being done on the film which is why so few spy photos and the like haven't surfaced for the film yet. Other than the one or two officially released stills from last month its been dry on the update front.

I was kind of surprised we didn't get any Marvel movie news. I guess they must have decided to just focus on Daredevil.

First look at Michael Douglas as Hank Pym.

Adam McKay speaks about rewriting the script, saying it was Paul Rudd that got him involved: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit...news/?a=109481

"[Rudd] called me when Edgar Wright stepped away from the project and told me what was going on. I went and met with Marvel, and I was a little dubious just because I’m friends with Edgar and I didn’t know what the story was, and then when I kind of heard what happened, that Edgar had parted ways, and then I saw their materials, I was like, ‘God this is pretty cool’. Ultimately I didn’t want to jump in as a director, I had too many other projects going and it was too tight, but I thought, ‘You know what, I can rewrite this, and I can do a lot of good by rewriting it."

That explains why he didn't direct then, and he goes on to reveal in the interview that he and Rudd actually spend a couple of months working together and completely rewriting the screenplay, adding: "I really thought we put some amazing stuff in there and built on an already strong script from Edgar Wright and sort of just enhanced some stuff. We added some new action beats. I grew up on Marvel Comics so the geek in me was in heaven that I got to add a giant action sequence to the movie; I was so excited. So we did, we added some cool new action."

Sounds like a lot of the core essence of what Wright did remains.
They wrote in some higher octane action sequences and a few other things but overall it's looking like largely it's still at least a 50% Wright scripted film. Probably more.

Not to wild about the goatee having Pym that we've seen Michael Douglas sporting in those on set photos. Kinda feel that's a Stark and Strange look.
