Marvel unveiled some of the test footage of director Edgar Wright's adaptation of Ant-Man at this year's Comic-Con, but, while Guardians of the Galaxy has been confirmed to be the movie that follows Captain America: The Winter Solider in 2014, the question remains where Ant-Man will fall in Marvel's upcoming slate. Wright already has his hands full with the upcoming comedy The World's End which he will shoot with Simon Pegg later this fall. With Guardians of the Galaxy taking Marvel's second release date in 2014, when is Marvel planning to release Ant-Man? According to Louis D'Esposito, Marvel Studios' co-president, it could arrive as early as 2014. At least, that's what he inferred during an interview with Collider.

Sure, Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the rest of the team helped to stop the threat of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the alien Chitauri by the end of The Avengers, but what happened after Earth's Mightiest Heroes saved the world (besides stopping for a bite to eat at a shawarma restaurant)? New York City is a disaster, with numerous buildings completely demolished and alien bodies and spaceships lying all over the place. It's assumed that S.H.I.E.L.D. will oversee the clean-up, but even Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) super-secret spy agency can't be expected to account for everything.
When The Avengers debuts on DVD/Blu-ray in September, it will include a 12-minute short titled Marvel One-Shot: Item 47 that will show what happens when two "hapless young troublemakers" (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) find one of the Chitauri weapons that S.H.I.E.L.D. missed during the clean-up and decide to use it to make some fast cash. Check out the (very) brief preview clip from the short now to see how S.H.I.E.L.D. responds to civilians committing crimes with alien tech. watch the sneak peek >> Posted 07.12.12 by BrentJS
With everyone's favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), er, out of the picture following the events in The Avengers, many fans were left wondering who would take his place in the next One-Shot short film that will be included with the home video release of the record-setting super-team movie. EW was the first to get the scoop about the new short, titled Item 47, and, while S.H.I.E.L.D. agents do appear in the short, the focus shifts from the super-secret spy agency to a piece of tech ("Item 47") left behind following The Avengers' battle with the Chitauri and the pair of "hapless young troublemakers" (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who find it. see the preview image & learn more about Item 47 >> Posted 07.03.12 by BrentJS
