ANT-MAN director and synopsis revealed
The production of Ant-Man has been a thorn in the side of Marvel. Frankly it has been one big cluster fuck so far. I am sure the studio wishes it could have the X-Men transport them back in time, but alas that isn’t possible.
Marvel announced that Peyton Reed (Down With Love, Yes Man) is on board to direct Ant-Man They studio also revealed that Adam McKay will help revamp the script and shared an official synopsis.
Even though I would like Marvel to scrap Ant-Man and focus on their other Phase 3 projects, it is not going to happen. The studio would lose millions of dollars and that is not good for them or their shareholders. As much as we all wish movies were made strictly for fans, that just isn’t the case. If studio shareholders are not happy, then films will not get a greenlight and stay in development hell for years.
I applaud Marve for choosing unconventional directors to helm their properties. Reed is definitely from left field, and is one of the last people I would expect to direct a superhero movie. Yes Man was a decent movie, but have not been enamored with the rest of his films. Down With Love is highly stylized and a fun film, which should add to bringing this unique suerphero to the big screen.
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.
Are you happy with Peyton Reed directing Ant-Man?
