SDCC: Marvel’s “Ant-Man” Cast Shrinks by Three

It turns out director Edgar Wright isn’t the only departure from Marvel’s “Ant-Man.”

On the eve of the studio’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con International, Deadline reports actors Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman have left the film, now helmed by Peyton Reed.

However, the website is quick to point the “creative differences” that led to Wright’s split with Marvel had nothing to do with these departures: Gerard and Weisman’s characters, which were never announced, were cut from the “newly evolved” script, while Wilson ran into a scheduling conflict caused by a production delay.

The only two confirmed actors, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, will appear Saturday during the Marvel panel, where Evangeline Lilly (“Lost,” “The Hobbit”) is expected to be introduced as part of the cast.

“Ant-Man” opens July 17, 2015.
