Ant-Man has it’s new director.

Standard

Marvel has chosen the new director of Ant-Man: Peyton Reed.
Whilst I haven’t seen any of his films apart from Bring It On, I am interested to see what he can bring to the table and the superhero movie in general. I still wish we had Edgar Wrights version of Ant-Man to look forward to but hey ho.

A day after Peyton Reed’s name emerged as one of the new frontrunners to take over for Edgar Wright on Ant-Man, Marvel have now officially confirmed he will indeed be taking the director’s chair on their next superhero tale.

Additionally, Adam McKay will still be involved in some capacity after turning down the directing gig – he’ll help work on the script, which presumably was what caused Wright to walk in the first place.

When Marvel’s “Ant-Man” hits theaters July 17, 2015, director Peyton Reed will help shepherd the hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a cast led by Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, with writer Adam McKay contributing to the film’s script.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
