Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man Test Reel Finally Makes Its Way Online

We’ve seen Edgar Wright’s fabled Ant-Man test reel, which debuted in July at Comic-Con International, recreated in a fan-made video. But now, at long last, we can watch the actual footage, captured this week at a screening in London.

Although the video was obviously shot with a cellphone, it’s surprisingly in focus and absent of the shakiness that typically accompanies such covert efforts. In other words, you can pretty clearly make out the action and special effects.

Victoria Alonso, Marvel’s executive vice president of visual effects, teased in September that the studio might one day release the reel — presumably as a DVD extra — so until then, this may have to do.

Ant-Man, which Wright teased last month is “part of the Marvel cinematic universe, but it also feels like its own piece,” opens Nov. 6, 2015.

    Yeah it was shown at Comic Con, but, this cell video is not from there. It’s from Yesterday at an event in London. Fact checking, man. (Still, it’s damn awesome!!!)

    it’s good! just that the ant man helmet in this looks a little like a cyberman.

  • George Mitchell

    Oh man… I’m still hoping for a Scott Lang Ant-Man story. Regardless, it looks good.

    that looks awesome

    meh, Ant-Man is still lame. I mean, growing big could be cool if done properly but shrinking? I just cringed when he shrank and jumped on that pistol. Really cheesy stuff, I must say.

    For test footage it was pretty good (loved the guards chewing their gum in sync). Can’t wait to see him on the flying ant.

    i agree Ant-Man is sort of lame. they should have made a Giant-Man film. or maybe they are saving that for Avengers? this helmet looks like Scott Lang’s which would be cool!

  • RSDhillon

    Amazing! Just fix that Cyberman-Stormtrooper helmet!

  • Orphan

    Helmet is not great but not bad but Fearitself And PietroMaximoff can get off the bus for all I care or jump in front of one. It looks good and is DC going to be sorry they never got Atom Off the ground first or what?

    Kind of a bit of an awkward walk into the elevator

    As long as his wife gets a beat down I’ll be happy.
