Marvel’s ANT-MAN has had an uncharacteristic rocky road.  Originally announced during the 2013 San Diego Comic Con directed by Edgar Wright.  Marvel Studios cut ties with Edgar Wright in May 2014 dismissing the director over artistic differences.  Peyton Reed was brought on to direct the film with Adam McKay hired to re-write the script.
