Marvel Officially Sets Peyton Reed To Direct ANT-MAN And Reveals First Plot Synopsis

With Anchorman director Adam McKay "contributing" to the script, Marvel's Ant-Man has officially announced Yes Man helmer Payton Reed as Edgar Wright's replacement! Also check out the synopsis!

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 must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, 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.

Anyhow, with Peyton Reed taking over directing duties, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson, and will release July 17, 2015.

The Yes Man said yes xD Glad MS has gotten things moving again, McKay tweaking the script is interesting.

Looks like they're trying to make this movie an actual comedy movie
ALegendaryPanda - 6/7/2014, 10:22 AM

Get your shit together Marvel Studios, your ego is starting to get the best of you.
TheRationalNerd - 6/7/2014, 10:25 AM
Alright looks like things are back on track...hoping for the best!
TheRationalNerd - 6/7/2014, 10:25 AM
Wondering who the villain(s) will be?
Spidey91 - 6/7/2014, 10:26 AM

batz11 - 6/7/2014, 10:27 AM

MrReese - 6/7/2014, 10:28 AM

SuperCat - 6/7/2014, 10:30 AM
About f*ckin' time!
DanMcNice - 6/7/2014, 10:30 AM
This guy directed New Girl, right??

Please get us ZOEY DESCHANEL for the WASP!!!!
(Dont get me wrong, I love Evangeline Lilly, but for me she would be a better Spider Woman)!!!!

Nothing like settling for 4th place.
SpiderFraud - 6/7/2014, 10:32 AM
Now we just got to wait till the movie drops, and see if this all works out. Director is kinda lame, but at least they found somebody to get this project going.
charlie2094 - 6/7/2014, 10:33 AM

Nowhere near as good a choice as Edgar, but at least there's actually someone. Still worried this could easily turn out to be a mess, what with there only being a year left, which is almost no time for a new director to come on board. Hopefully McKay can do some decent work to the script
AgeofApocalypse - 6/7/2014, 10:34 AM
Still wish it was just Pym, or at least a younger Pym that could interact/join the Avengers. Wasp better not be his daughter, either.
Ryguy88 - 6/7/2014, 10:34 AM
Now lets see if they can actually make a decent movie out of this.
M3T4LL0 - 6/7/2014, 10:34 AM
About damn time!
QuestiontheAnswer - 6/7/2014, 10:35 AM
Marvel manages to produce a movie that seems more laughable than F4.
KilledHal9000 - 6/7/2014, 10:35 AM
Im....okay with this. I know why Wright walked, they changed his "passing the torch" idea.
Marqy - 6/7/2014, 10:35 AM
Finally ... now get to work MS ...
maninfinesuit - 6/7/2014, 10:36 AM

I hope this movie blows.
Ryguy88 - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
So the re-writes were done by McKay?
PunkRockJesus - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
Sweet! That means we will definitely have a granny fellatio scene!
Phronesis - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
My interest for this movie is nowhere where it should be, unfortunately.
SpiderFraud - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
I wonder if they plan on killing off Pym or setting up a Ant-Man duo for future installments. I would go with the latter since its more interesting.
JordanKing - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
I love the sarcastic fist pump Rudd seems to be giving in the banner. So fitting.
EpitomeofAwesome - 6/7/2014, 10:37 AM
Well, well, well.
EpitomeofAwesome - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
I was pumped for this movie ‘till Wright left
maninfinesuit - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
But hey, at least Marvel got their first choice!

ReeferInferno - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
Any interest I had in this died when Wright left. This does nothing to help that.

Marqy - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
Too bad about Edgar ... he was a big part of the reason Im excited for this .... the other half being the label Marvel Studios
Snowballx - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
YASSSS! I'm sooo excited for Peyton and nice to know about Adam contributing!
Phronesis - 6/7/2014, 10:38 AM
I just hope Peyton Reed wasn't a "Yes Man" while accepting this job.
