It’s the incredible shrinking Ant-Man – just, you know, the wrong kind of shrinking. Seriously, is there a revolving door in the Ant-Man set?

Ever since the unexpected and dumbfounded separation of director Edgar Wright, the Marvel Studios production of Ant-Man continues to be a spectacle in developmental challenges. The ever fluctuant production has now just lost 3 of its stars, including Patrick Wilson. Cue the obligatory “Things aren’t looking good for this movie. I’m sure it’ll turn out ok, but I’ll always wonder what an Edgar Wright Ant-Man movie would look like” comment.  (more…)

It’s busy days for the man that manages the Marvel Cinematic Universe, producer Kevin Feige. Not only does he have his studio’s biggest gamble, Guardians of the Galaxy, hitting theaters in a few short weeks, but he’s got to stun the nerdy masses this coming weekend at San Diego Comic Con, which is pretty much his industry’s trade show. As usual, there’s a lot of rumor, speculation, and outright innuendo when it comes to anything from Marvel Studios, so Feige is once again playing rumor control, and setting the record straight on a couple of things, amongst them: fear of Edgar Wright, a future on film for Namor The Sub-Mariner, and the potential for franchise crossovers. Let’s get into it! (more…)

It seemed like a storybook romance: Fan favorite director Edgar Wright was going to bring his beloved Ant-Man project to life, and the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe was supposed to be the better for it. When that relationship fell through because of control issues Wright apparently wasn’t willing to give up, we’ve read nothing but taboo reports about the awkward enterprise. With Wright’s exit, so went cinematographer Bill Pope. Enter Adam McKay to write the movie Marvel wants. You may know him from the hit-and-miss Anchorman series and such short films as A Public Statement from Anthony Weiner’s Penis. Now, before you go questioning his action movie chops, keep in mind that the movie is supposed to be funny too. He’s got history with star Paul Rudd and an aptitude for writing comedy. But how’s the script? It might be a problem that Marvel is working tirelessly to fix…
