Ant-Man was originally developed by Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright in 2006, but a joint statement was released in May that Marvel Studios and Wright had "parted ways…due to differences in their vision of the film." Reed was named Ant-Man director in June and the film went in front of cameras August 18th in San Francisco, and later Atlanta. Anchorman writer/director Adam McKay was also brought on to contribute to Wright and Joe Cornish's original script.
Paul Rudd plays Scott Lang, described in the official synopsis as a "con-man" who "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." The film also stars Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Peña.
Ant-Man will be released July 17, 2015.
