Despite their own history with Star Wars, many fans bristled when it was revealed that Marvel Comics would take over the Star Wars comic book license from Dark Horse Comics. Debuting its first Star Wars book back in 1986, Dark Horse had solidified its brand and enhanced the Star Wars expanded universe over the course of almost three decades, but in the end, they suffered from one fatal flaw — they weren’t a part of the Disney family — and now we’re at a point where Star Wars fans have been waiting for some time to know what happens with the baton is passed.

While Marvel’s Ant-Man adaption has hit more than few bumps in the road to production – with director Edgar Wright having left the project per creative differences and the purging of several actors, including Patrick Wilson – the project moves forward.
