Tweets Of The Week

Simon Pegg squashes Ant-Man rumours, Damon Lindelof on Into Darkness’ worst Star Trek ranking and Katee Sackhoff dressed as The Doctor in the latest Tweets Of The Week

You can always rely on the internet to get the wrong end of the stick. The latest example: Simon Pegg, who’s perfectly innocent, Vin-Diesel-aping picture of himself pointing at a picture of Ant-Man in Marvel HQ was instantly taken as confirmation that Edgar Wright’s long-time collaborator would be stepping into the tiny shoes of Hank Pym:

@simonpegg Fun at Marvel #3

Pegg was quick to debunk the wildfire rumours:

@simonpegg FFS the Internet, all I did was point at the central character in my dear friend's next movie, because I'm excited for him. #iamantman

@simonpegg Oh wait, I fucked up that hashtag. It was supposed to be #iamnotantman

@simonpegg I am however going to play Antnan, a film about the adventures of a tiny grandmother. #iamantnan

Before gently mocking the movie media who jumped on the story based on extremely tenuous evidence, along with Wright:

@simonpegg Why is no one talking about the real news sweeping the Internet?! RT @Variety Edgar Wright to helm Thundercats for @20thcenturyfox

@edgarwright No, @Simon Pegg is not Ant-Man but... RT @THR Breaking: Simon Pegg offered role of 'Batman' in @wbpictures 'Superman Vs Batman'. #BatPegg

@simonpegg Uh...guys.
