Corey Stoll, one of the more recent additions to the Ant-Man cast as a currently unrevealed character, is speaking out about the movie he's signed onto, and he is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the film, more so than the average chap.
I’m absolutely thrilled! Reading the script – and the script that [outgoing director Edgar Wright] wrote, and the script that there is now – it’s insane that this movie hasn’t been made before. Obviously, you need the technology because it needs to look great. But the whole idea of the changing of scale and the experiential effect of size changing is just so cool. You read these scenes on the page, and I just got giddy. I think it’s gonna be so much fun.
Stoll is highly rumored to be playing William Cross, better known by his supervillain name Crossfire. He says this film is anything but "just another superhero film", and that this film may become Marvel's next Iron Man franchise, the studios' biggest money maker at the moment, with the exception of the Avengers of course.
You can get a little fatigued with superheroes because everybody is just punching everybody, or shooting everybody with ray beams. This is a completely different kinetic experience in the theater. Shrinking and growing back, there’s just so much material there to root it in. I think it’s gonna be great.
It's interesting that Stoll doesn't mention anything about Ant-Man's ant communicating ability. Could this ability have been scrapped for the sake of believable film? part of me really hopes so, but part of me feels the power could be done in such a way that could be really cool if approached properly by the director. Do you think the ant communicating ability should be discluded from the film?
