Here we go!
Now that Edgar Wright is done gallivanting around the globe in triumph over "The World's End," he's gotta get moving on that "Ant-Man" flick (no, really, the release date got moved up so it's totally crunch time ... pardon the onomatopoeic pun).
Wright, who worked on the script for the dang thing for eight years, has finally gotten himself back to
the colony Los Angeles to work on the next Marvel movie, and he was kind — or cruel, depending on how you look at it — enough to share a little picture action of the ubersecret goings-on.
On Twitter, he dished out a teaser glimpse of what appears to be a stunt dude posing in the Ant-Man costume with the caption, "Now I'm back in LA, it's high time to finish a little something I've been working on."
While it's a rather dark image and only the bum-side is visible in the frame (thanks, Edgar!), the suit color fits the bill for the biochemist-turned-insect, as do those little antennae on his helmet.

No official casting announcements have been made for "Ant-Man" at this time, so this image is probably of a super early costume effects test or light-staging effort or some other kind of pre-production jazz. Even so, yay for "Ant-Man" finally getting underway!
