Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have delivered their Ant-Man script

"We're really happy with it."

Forgive us for getting over-excited when it comes to Edgar Wright's Ant-Man.

The thought of the Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim filmmaker being unleashed on one of Marvel's quirkiest characters makes it one of the most intriguing movies in development, even though it's yet to be greenlit.

At this weekend's Kapow! Comic Con, Wright's co-writer Joe Cornish gave the following succinct but inspiring progress update: "We delivered the second draft of Ant-Man two days ago, and we're really happy with it."

While this hardly proves that the movie will be shoved straight into production, it is extremely promising, and further bolsters our hopes that this'll be Edgar Wright's next movie as director.

Cornish was at Kapow! promoting Attack the Block, his directorial feature debut about aliens invading a South London estate. The pair recently worked together on the script for Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.

Ant-Man will not be featuring in Marvel's forthcoming epic, The Avengers, and it's unclear if he could potentially fit into future franchise installments.

Have you got high hopes for Ant-Man? Do you think Edgar Wright is perfect for the material? Let us know...

      Awesome, these two can do something really special with this character, in all his forms he's an interesting character, best to mix elements of all of them. Although hopes of a 'Yellow Jacket' style looney would be too much to hope for. I heard a rumour about maybe Nathan Fillion being sounded out for the part? This. Would.Be.Genius.

      As much as I love them I just don't see Ant Man doing major business at the box-office.
