Is Marvel finally pressing ahead with Ant-Man?

Rumours from Cannes suggests that Edgar Wright might have got the greenlight for his Ant-Man movie from Marvel...

Just last week we were speculating as to what the thus-far unnamed movie on Marvel's 2014 release calendar was likely to be. And it looks like the runes are increasingly pointing in the direction of Ant-Man.

There's been nothing concrete on this, we should point out, rather an increased concentration of rumours surrounding the project. Ant-Man has been nursed along by Edgar Wright for some time, and it's no secret that work has been going on with regards the script. But there was a fear it would be one of those projects that's always on the back-burner, but never gets the greenlight.

Last week, though, Edgar Wright commented that he hoped to be able to shoot some of Ant-Man this year. He's already set to roll cameras on the eagerly-awaited The World's End, which is due in cinemas in the spring of 2013. Could he really slot Ant-Man work in as well?

Possibly. And the latest rumours, as reported by Twitch, are emanating from Cannes Film Festival. They indicate that Ant-Man has indeed been given a greenlight by Marvel. Twitch isn't the kind of source known to hyperbole, either, although the site does tag its Tweet on the matter as a rumour.

But are things finally aligning? And are the two projects that most fans want Edgar Wright to tackle the most both coming together at the same time? We'll be sure to keep you posted...
