Marvel's Ant-Man Film

Edgar Wright Exits Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ as Director

In a surprise announcement, Edgar Wright has left Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” as its director, the company said Friday.

Marvel is zeroing in on a new filmmaker, but is not yet in negotiations with one yet, Variety can confirm. When announcing Wright’s departure, Marvel said “a new director will be announced shortly.”

Hollywood and Marvel’s fan community will be scratching its head for awhile over this one, considering Wright has been attached to “Ant-Man” since 2006 — before the first “Iron Man” film — as a screenwriter. He has regularly gone to San Diego Comic-Con to give updates on the project’s development, and even showed test footage in 2012 of his approach to bringing the size-shifting character to the bigscreen.

Marvel and Wright parted ways “due to differences in their vision of the film,” the company and director said in a statement.

The decision to move on is amicable, they added, and does not impact the release date of July 17, 2015. The film had originally been dated for Nov. 6, 2015.

Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly star in the film, with Corey Stoll, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson.



In addition to helming, Wright also co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish (“Attack the Block”). Wright most recently directed the comedy “The World’s End,” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “Hot Fuzz” and “Shaun of the Dead” before that.

Cornish could conceivably take over the project, given his close involvement with it over the years.

He had been considered for “Star Trek 3″ but opted for Universal’s spy thriller “Section 6,” set to star Jack O’Connell, instead. Film revolves around the formation of British intelligence agency MI6.

Marvel is developing “Ant-Man” as a potential new franchise as part of its third phase of films, the way it hopes to introduce the characters in “Guardians of the Galaxy” in August to hopefully appear in multiple movies.

In the comicbooks, Ant-Man is the alter-ego of biochemist Hank Pym, who uses subatomic particles to create a size-altering formula and when tests go awry, realizes he can also communicate with and control insects. The character eventually pairs up with the Avengers.

Peyton Reed directing. Adam McCay coming in to "contribute" to the script.

Whatever.

This movie looks to be way beyond my initial expectations after the firing of Edgar and rewrites by Rudd and McKay.

I thought it would be an unmitigated disaster but it looks really good, IMO.

I am still a bit worried about it... I think we are looking at a solid, good but not great movie. Paul Rudd is so likeable though that he alone might change that calculus.

The cast is really excellent, from Michael Douglas to Evangeline Lily.

IMO, it all be about the story. If it works, it might be this summer's "Guardians of the Galaxy". If it flops, it'll be the Hulk.

Still on the fence. I think the cast will keep the numbers up, but I expect this will be the lowest theater showing for Marvel so far. I know I'll be waiting for reviews before going to see it (or waiting for Netflix). Most other Marvel products are an opening weekend event for me.

The first, which was just called "Hulk". I own the second movie and really like it. It's too bad that Norton didn't work out but they hit a home run with Ruffalo.

That said, both movies had similar box office returns but that was before Iron Man, which pretty much changed everything.

Ironically, considering our Mad Men discussion. Hamm and Rudd are both working on Wet Hot American Summer for Netflix as we speak.

Actually Nortons Hulk was about a month or two after the first Iron Man. It's considered part of the MCU and contains the Downey end scene

Right, but Iron Man's $102 million dollar opening weekend really set the tone for Marvel's future. I think that Norton's Hulk would have been more successful if not for the failed version earlier in the decade and had it not gone head to head with a Iron Man. Dumb move on Uni's part.

FWIW, Universal still owns the rights to the Hulk, there aren't any plans for a Hulk movie until the rights revert to Marvel.

The latest trailer is better than the earlier teasers, but something still looks and feels off about it. I sort of get the sense that they never figured out what the movie is, so everything about it feels off. It's not totally drama, it's not totally comedy, it just looks like a bland mix of random parts. Hopefully my read turns out to be wrong.

I think after The Avengers, Ruffalo IS The Hulk. End of story. No knock on Norton, but it's like a Brando Corleone thing.

To my mind, as good as De Niro is, he's a young gangster that led to the era of The Godfather, not a young Vito. Brando is Vito.
