Arad Productions in association with Big Talk Productions are in the pre-production stages of the highly anticipated Marvel Studios action adventure sci-fi thriller feature film “Ant-Man”. Walt Disney Studios, the parent company of Marvel Enterprises, announced that the film has been greenlit. Filming is scheduled to start this January, 2012 for a November 6, 2015 release date. People’s Choice Award winning Canadian actor Nathan Fillion has been mentioned for the lead role of Hank Pym, also known as Ant Man. However, Fillion stated at the 2012 Hero Complex Film Fest, “did you ever just love Ant-Man? Not me”. Therefore is seems highly unlikely that the studio would pursue Pym after making a comment like that. The project will shoot at Pinewood Studios in England, and other locations around London and the United Kingdom.
