Simon Pegg Is NOT Marvel’s “Ant-Man”

You can’t post a photo these days without someone misinterpreting it.

Simon Pegg recently visited Marvel’s NYC office and posed for a photo in front of some art, art that included a picture of the Ant-Man character.

Pegg’s good friend and long time collaborator Edgar Wright is making the “Ant-Man” film for Marvel, and so fans assumed Pegg was using the photo to hint that he would be slipping on the superhero costume.

The pair have now taken to Twitter, to shoot down the talk. Wright tweeted “No, Simon Pegg is not Ant-Man”. Pegg soon followed, tweeting: “All I did was point at the central character in my friend’s next movie, because I’m excited for him. I am not Ant-Man.”
