Director Edgar Wright was supposed to helm the upcoming Ant-Man movie for Marvel, but it sounds like he left the project over creative differences. Now there’s news that Peyton Reed (who helmed “Bring it on” and the awesome comedy movie “Yes Man“) is taking over the director’s seat.
There’s also a new official plot synopsis from Marvel:
Plot of Ant-Man:
“Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
If Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd team up then the world is safe!
The release date is still set to July 31, 2015.
