If Wrights out he is the second best choice

I mean, a heist flick with a protagonist that can shirk down to ant-size? There is a lot of potential for fun, engaging stories to be told from that perspective no matter who’s directing.

they said: x amount – we need to know asap
he said: okay let me think about it
called back the next day: no thanks, good luck

pretty normal for business discussions – cause at this point that’s pretty much the main conversation
they want someone who’s available NOW and willing to work with the pay – so just a matter of finding someone they like that fits those two criteria and willing to be a team player – that’s what Marvel films and tv shows are – a team effort – not solo 1-off projects – the whole point of the MCU is to build to subsequent films and now tv shows

Anchorman 1 & 2 were funny and the Other Guys was a enjoyable flick until the credits reveal it as a Economic satire instead of a buddy cop film. I don’t really want McKay near this one. I can see were his high points would be but the would over shadows by his weaknesses in a film like Antman.

I don’t see Ant Man as a good character for a movie, for AM fans maybe give him a tv show, but with what they’ve done to the original story with basicly writing Pym out I don’t see any point in using him now.

Adam: I guess no, thats impossible.
Adam’s agent: Oh what impossible even means right
*everyone but Adam laughs*
Adam: Well you see, i can make a comedy out of AntMan, i don’t want to but i can. But making it by this script without rewriting.
Marvel: So rewrite it. Oh, and can you add Tony Stark in there?
Adam: What has Ironman to do with Antman?
Marvel: Its Marvel property and he is popular. You can add just small scenes like after credits.
Adam: Well, ok.
Marvel: Oh, and also he could show up in the movie, you know nothing special just a guest star somewhere. Maybe helping with some advice to Pinkman
Adam: Pym
Marvel: him too. And maybe you know helping him to fight a bad guy, not the whole fight just at the end showing up to save Antman and finishes the villain with one strike.
*Adam runs off the meeting sits in the car turns on music and drive on top speed*
“One way to hell…”

Without diversity, you wouldn’t be able to eat different kinds of food every night, or listen to different genres of music. So diversity isn’t crap. So yeah, don’t hate..

Marvel is certainly reeling from this and I suspect the film is doomed, if it’s ever made. Does anyone know if the actors can bow out of a production? I think it’s time for Marvel to realize that their own vision doesn’t always make for memorable movies.

Marvelites throwing around big director names gives me a chuckle.

“Hey, Mr Big Name Director Dude, want to come make a movie for us that essentially demotes you to glorified cinematographer? We didn’t let Wright do what he wanted, so we’re sure as hell not going to let you, it’s pretty much a paint by numbers comedy that will mostly serve as an ad for future Disvel movies. You are there mostly to just do what your told. Interested?”

Yeah, I’m sure directors are beating a path to their door to do this movie! Hahahahahahahahaha

I hope that they get someone capable and that it works out.

I’m merely saying we could be positively surprised. The two options are a possibility. I’m rather an optimist myself, so my comment goes along those lines.
