It has been a whirlwind week for Marvel as talks for the director of Ant Man begin to die down. Marvel has begun negotiations with director Adam McKay to replace Edgar Wright for the helmer of the film.


McKay is known for comedic movies as Talladega Nights and Anchorman and also has worked with Paul Rudd. THR has contacted McKay’s reps and they had this to say:

“McKay is eager to take on the challenge of replacing fanboy favorite Wright,” they report, “and would likely accept the job should Marvel tender an official offer.”

Marvel One Shot Director to Helm ANT MAN?

While Edgar Wright fans mourn the loss of his recent departure from the film he spent 7 to 8 years on, Marvel may have found his replacement… and it may be in the director of Marvel’s awesome One Shots.


El Mayimbe from Latino Review is reporting that Louis D Esposito, who has directed the recent One Shot Agent Carter and 2012’s Item 47, may be the next director of Marvels Ant-Man.

Joss Whedon and James Gunn Comment on Edgar Wright’s Departure from ANT MAN


Marvel fans every where are still hurting from the recent split between Edgar Wright and Marvel over creative differences ove the script of Ant Man. But now two of Marvel’s directors, James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron) have posted to show their support on social media.



Sometimes you have friends in a relationship. You love each of them dearly as individuals and think they’re amazing people. When they talk to you about their troubles, you do everything you can to support them, to keep them together, because if you love them both so much doesn’t it make sense they should love each other? But little by little you realize, at heart, they aren’t meant to be together – not because there’s anything wrong with either of them, but they just don’t have personalities that mesh in a comfortable way. They don’t make each other happy. Although it’s sad to see them split, when they do, you’re surprisingly relieved, and excited to see where their lives take them next.

It’s easy to try to make one party “right” and another party “wrong” when a breakup happens, but it often isn’t that simple. Or perhaps it’s even more simple than that – not everyone belongs in a relationship together. It doesn’t mean they’re not wonderful people.

And that’s true of both Edgar Wright and Marvel. One of them isn’t a person, but I think you get what I mean.


Joss Whedon released a very heartfelt photo of him holding a Cornetto ice cream cone in representation of Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy (Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, At World’s End)


In Empire Magazine, Kevin Feige talks about the film and what to expect from the third installment of the Iron Man franchise.

On Robert Downey Jr.’s On-Set Injury Earlier This Year: 

Robert is very gung-ho about doing his own stunts, but he’s also very safety conscious and aware of his limitations. He wasn’t even attempting to do anything above or beyond what would be considered safe – it was just a wire-assisted leap from one platform to another, and he came down in the wring position on that ankle. It was a good old fashioned accident. The silver lining was that Shane started to work on the cut and continued to work on the script, and hone and refine the movie itself.

On The Destruction Of Tony Stark’s Mansion In Malibu: 

It’s an amazing sequence. The first time we looked at an animatic of that sequence was well over a year ago. It was one of the first signs that Shane was going to bring a level of spectacle you hadn’t necessarily seen before, as well as all the Shane Blackisms that this movie is chock-full of.

On Increasing The “Risk” Factor For Iron Man 3: 

Avengers was a risk. Casting Robert Downey was a risk. We like taking those kinds of risks, and Iron Man 3 is full of risks. I wouldn’t say those risks were ratcheted up or down because of the success of The Avengers. It basically boosted our confidence that the risky way to go is often the best way to go.

On Where The Movie Picks Up With Tony Stark After The Events Of The Avengers: 

This is all about how he was affected by the events of The Avengers, and how his world and mindset can be affected by that. By the end of Avengers, when a portal is opened up in Manhattan and he’s met Thor and The Hulk and the Chitauri are coming down on him, he realises that he doesn’t know everything; we think that has had an effect on his psyche, and then his world is blown out from underneath him.

On Including ‘The Mandarin’ In The Movie And His Role In The Threequel: 

Early – and very late – drafts of Iron Man 1 featured The Mandarin as a villain. The Mandarin is his most famous foe in the comics mainly because he’s been around the longest. If you look, there’s not necessarily a definitive Mandarin storyline in the comics. So it was really about having an idea. In terms of the Fu Manchu stereotyping that was involved, we never had any interest in that. He’s relentless. Assuming that he’s the one responsible for what happens to Tony’s house, no other villain has been able to strike that fast and that hard at one of our heroes. He’s very much about believing that the world needs to learn, and he wants to bend the world to his vision.

On The Reason For ‘Rhodey’ Suiting Up As ‘Iron Patriot’: 

The notion in the movie is that a red, white and blue suit is a bold statement, and it’s meant to be. With Rhodey, he’s very much the foil to Tony’s eccentricities, and in this one you get to see this and be reminded of the trust and friendship between them in that great Shane Black buddy-cop fashion.

On Whether Iron Man 3 Will Feature Any Cameos From The Rest Of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: 

Iron Man 3 doesn’t feature any of the other Avengers, or Nick Fury showing up, or any of those world-blending conceits that the Phase One films had. You have to keep in mind that Iron Man 3 had been in the works for almost a year, year and a half before The Avengers was released. We’re sticking to the vision for these films, and showing once again that these characters are just as interesting alone as they are together.

On Making This The BIGGEST Iron Man Movie Yet: 

There’s more suit action in Iron Man 3 than there is in any of the other movies. But there’s also more Tony Stark action – just Tony as Tony when he’s not in the suit – in Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 comes to theaters May 3rd 2013
