A "yes" man probably or Gareth Edwards.

Somewhere Brett Ratner's cell phone is ringing.

Edwards just signed to deliver a Star Wars spin-off movie for Christmas 2016. He wouldn't have the time, or probably the inclination, to step in and direct Ant-Man on short notice, too.

Shame. That little Ant-Man teaser was one of the coolest teasers I've seen in a while.

Seems likely he probably wanted to make something much more nutty and unconventional than the usual Marvel movie, and they wouldn't let him.

A bit late in the game to decide the direction was wrong.

I would actually put money on either James Gunn (since Guardians of the Galaxy is supposedly being wildly received by studio execs) or Joe Cornish, since he walked away from Star Trek III and co-wrote the script.

Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright are good friends. Do you think Cornish would direct if Wright left based on creative differences? If Wright left because of personal reasons, then I would see that happening, but not given the supposed split.

Buzzfeed reports that Joe Cornish hasn't been approached to direct. That's no surprise for the reason JacksonArcher stated. It's unlikely to be James Gunn unless Ant-Man is delayed. Directors usually focus on fine-tuning films, especially tentpole releases, right up to the release date and then there's a time-consuming publicity tour to take into account. It's no easy feat to quickly transition from one big budget movie to another on short notice.

I think Marvel was finally fed up with Wright taking forever to do this movie. This movie was announced in 2006, before even the first Iron Man!

http://www.superherohype.com/feature...-talks-ant-man

Could it be that Wright wanted more time and another delay causing Marvel to finally balk?

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Variety had previously said a new director is already lined up, but they've amended their story. It now says:

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.”

^^I have heard rumors that the production was more than a month behind, and that's why Wright is no longer directing.

Brett Ratner?



Wow, what a waste of time that all was then.

I do wonder if it's because Marvel just want to make a fairly straight forward movie cinematically. I do like the MCU movies, but they are little tame and bland at times
