33 Things We Learned from Edgar Wright’s ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ Commentary By Rob Hunter “Bryan Lee O’Malley is the anti-Alan Moore.” Edgar Wright’s fifth feature film hits theaters today, so we decided to give a listen to the commentary track on his third movie.

Peyton Reed To Return To Director’s Chair For Ant-Man And The Wasp According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ant Man director Peyton Reed is in negotiations to return for 2018’s Ant Man and the Wasp. The film, which will presumably see Evangeline Lilly‘s Hope Van Dyne take her mother’s hero alias and the suit her father spent 30 years making, was recently announced and shifted release dates for other Marvel films like Black Panther and Captain Marvel. Reed took over directing Ant Man after original director Edgar Wright dropped out and several other directors declined.

In anticipation of Ant-Man coming to China, Marvel has released a new poster featuring the titular superhero against his nemesis, Yellowjacket. Starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, the latest Marvel film faced some uphill battles with the creative differences between director Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios, which lead to the director bowing out of the movie.

Ant-Man: Making Marvel's Underdog Movie As one of Marvel's longest-gestating projects (even predating the first Iron Man), Ant-Man is "The Little Superhero Movie That Could." For years (and years), writer-director Edgar Wright worked with Marvel Studios to get his vision for the tiniest Avenger on the big screen, but in May 2014 the filmmaker left the project, citing creative differences with the studio. It wasn't long before Peyton Reed was brought on-board to take his place, mere months before shooting. However, this turned out to be a great thing for the creative team, who embraced a more collaborative approach.

Whereas Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) leaving Marvel’s Ant-Man was huge news in some corners of the Internet, it likely didn’t make much of an impact among the general viewing public. Still, that doesn’t mean that Marvel automatically has a hit on their hands.

But Marvel shifted gears, brought in Peyton Reed and Adam McKay to work with Paul Rudd and the cast on the film. Now we’re seeing a very promising looking trailer and are under three months away from the films release. But there was one thing left to figure out… just how the film would be credited. Wright and Joe Cornish wrote the original script that was later re-written by McKay and Rudd.

Joss Whedon Called Edgar Wright's Ant-Man The Best Script Marvel Ever Had Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon has opened up about Edgar Wright's departure from Ant-Man. "Only that I don't get it," Whedon told BuzzFeed when asked for his thoughts. "I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa." "I don’t know where things went wrong. But I was very sad," he said.

Joss Whedon talks Edgar Wright's Ant-Man, serialized storytelling & more After checking out the latest ANT-MAN trailer, I was all set to embrace the Peyton Reed film (co-written by star Paul Rudd and Adam McKay), but now here comes Joss Whedon, calling the Edgar Wright penned script "the best script that Marvel had ever had."
