I’m not sure how much additional reporting I can do on a Twitter image and post, since I’m fairly sure there are at least two-dozen of you that know exactly what I do concerning the actual shooting of an Ant-Man film.
We know Ant-Man is the tail end of the Batman Vs. Superman Marvel sandwich that begins with The Avengers: Age of Ultron capping off the second Phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now I’m back in LA, it’s high time to finish a little something I’ve been working on… pic.twitter.com/ko3u1q45C4

What we don’t know is what Edgar Wright is filming in LA. Sure, it would make sense to be prepping Ant-Man and – yes – it’s getting about time for some tests. But saying that this is an Ant-Man test is assuming which makes a uming out of asses.
What one could guess, considering the costume pictured is the same one from the years-old Ant-Man test, is that Edgar Wright learned some stuff from The World’s End and is giving it a test whirl. Specifically, I’d imagine, things that have to do with a real Ant-Man interacting with the growing and shrinking world around him (his combat depends on this and World’s End shows tight combat choreography, so this is by far what I’m anticipating the most).
If we know James Spader has gone in for Ultron tests and Avengers: Age of Ultron is basically going to be completed simultaneously with Ant-Man, it’s safe to assume pre-production on both movies is deep in the planning process, the testing process, the experimental process.
But it’s always nice to see Edgar Wright back to work and it’s great to have a reminder that Ant-Man is on his way…
… After Thor.
… After Cap.
… After Guardians of the Galaxy.
… After Age of Ultron.
