Edgar Wright On ANT-MAN'S Villain Empty

Said The World's End director on selecting a villain for his upcoming Ant-Man movie and his decision to not use Ultron, "It was never in my script. Because even just to sort of set up what Ant-Man does is enough for one movie. It's why I think "Iron Man" is extremely successful because it keeps it really simple. You have one sort of -- the villain comes from the hero's technology. It's simple. So I think why that film really works and why, sometimes, superhero films fail -- or they have mixed results -- because they have to set up a hero and a villain at the same time. And that's really tough. And sometimes it's unbalanced."

Wright also adds that he's enjoying the fact that Ant-Man, while relatively popular, his back story isn't ingrained in the minds of the general populace. "I think there's something in that it's a lesser known character, there's hopefully more license," said the Scott Pilgrim director. He continued, "For the one percent of people who are like, "Wait, Hank Pym would never do that!" there's 99 percent going, "Who's Hank Pym?" So, to me, the source material is great but it also frees you up to be like: I'm going to make a movie. The movie is not going to represent 50 years of Marvel comics because that's impossible. But I'm going to make a 100 minute movie -- or 110 minutes [laughs]."

As we now know, Ultron will make his debut in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, leaving the Ant-Man film that follows without a clear, fan-favorite choice as far as a villain. It's not a stretch to say Ant-Man's rogues gallery is pretty weak after the android menace, with the likes of Egghead, Radioactive Man, Hijacker and the Scarlet Beetle rounding out a pretty obscure list of Marvel evildoers.
