Out of Empire Online today, we’ve got three new stills of the next offering from Marvel Studios, Ant-Man. There’s not a lot of new information to glean from the pictures, which basically just show scenes from the trailers we’ve already seen.

But these images also came with some new information about the film. Empire asked Peyton Reed whether any of the New Avengers will show up, specifically Anthony Mackie’s Falcon. Reed’s response was, “That’s classified information. That’s buried. It’s possible.” 

He and Evangeline Lily also went on to talk about the script, more specifically the difference between their take and Edgar Wright’s. Reed said, “For one thing, Marvel have let me explore the dark side of Hank Pym, this tortured, guilt-ridden guy. I love that this is a mentor/pupil story, but with a fucked up pupil and a really fucked up mentor.”

Lily then added, “I think the most defining difference between the two scripts was that Edgar’s didn’t take itself as seriously. It was fun and silly and brilliant irreverent – a romp from beginning to end, in classic English fashion. Whereas where we’ve gotten to is so much more American. There’s tons of levity, but just as much emotion.”
