MTV: Who Should Play Ant-Man?

Sneaky Edgar Wright kept tweeting about how rainy it was in London during Comic-Con. Surprise! The English filmmaker was camping out in San Diego all along. The mastermind behind genre love letters "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" surprised the press and fans with his appearance at Marvel's Hall H panel, where he unleashed some badass "Ant-Man" test footage. Wright joked that he's taken the "Terrence Malick approach" to the long gestating project. CLICK HERE to see my casting ideas.
