On February 9, 2007 Wright said that the project was in "a holding pattern" while the script was revised, with casting yet to begin. The director reported that he would have news about the film in a few months. He has been researching nanotechnology for the film. As of March 2008, Wright told Empire magazine that a second draft of the script is being written. Known for being a comedy writer, the director noted that the film would not be overtly comedic, but that it would be "more of a full-on action adventure sci-fi film but with a comedic element."
On February 9, 2010 Stan Lee, the co-creator of Ant-Man, met with Wright for lunch, and Lee soon recounted the meeting on his Twitter feed: "To make up for my previous grievous error, here's a little item that may have escaped you. Marvel is prepping a movie starring-- Ant Man!" Lee continued in a further tweet, "I had lunch with the cool, young director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and, as you'd imagine, we had fun discussing the tiny hero."
On February 11, 2010, Edgar Wright told MTV News, "Because that character isn't one of their biggest properties, it’s not like a tentpole deadline. It’s more like me and Kevin Feige saying, 'Let's make a really good script.' We've always agreed on that — 'Let's make a good script that works, that’s all about a great genre film, and that isn’t necessarily relying on anything else.'"
At the San Diego Comic Con in 2010, Wright confirmed that his script is an origin story, and that doesn't work for Marvel's chronology to include Ant-Man in The Avengers. Wright stated in January 2011 that he resumed writing the script for the film. During a Q and A at SXSW for Cornish's movie Attack the Block, Wright and Cornish stated that they had been recently rewriting the script. While attending Kapow-Con in April 2011, Cornish revealed that Wright and he had delivered the second draft to the studio. Then on July 2011 Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish delivered a third draft and some concept art to Marvel Studios. A source says that the film now has been greenlit.
In May, 2012, a "teaser" image of the movie was presented via Twitter by writer and director Edgar Wright. Feige stated as well that the movie was "as close as it’s ever been". On June 28, 2012, Wright directed a test reel for the film. Rumors also surfaced that Wright will be directing a post-credits scene for Iron Man 3 in which Ant-Man confronts Chen Lu. Wright appeared at San Diego Comic-Con on July 14, 2012 to confirm Ant-Man as his next project and to show his test footage. Simon Pegg announced on his Twitter that Edgar will shoot Ant-Man next year. On October 15, 2012, Marvel and Disney announced that Edgar Wright's Ant-Man would hit theaters on November 6, 2015. In January 2013, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Ant-Man will start "Phase Three" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
