Will Marvel Pick AGENT CARTER One-Shot Director For ANT-MAN?
A week ago, comic book movie fans were shocked to learn that Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead"), who had been developing Ant-Man since 2006, had left the project which was to begin filming very soon. Since then, rumors have circulated that Marvel Studios did a last-minute rewrite of the script that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish had written and what came back was a more generic script. That supposedly angered Wright enough so that he walked away from his passion project, Ant-Man.
Latino Review's scooper extraordinaire, El Mayimbe, believes he is hot the trailer of another big scoop and this involves who Marvel will choose to replace Edgar Wright as the director of Ant-Man.
Besides speculating as to why Wright departed people have been wondering who might step in and direct Ant-Man. El Mayimbe, who has been on a hot streak with his scoops of late, has news that Marvel Studios Co-President, Louis D'Esposito, who also directed the Marvel one-shots Item 47 and Agent Carter, is looking like the strongest candidate at the moment.
