For a few moments last year, Adam McKay almost directed Ant-Man. At least, that’s how the situation seemed to be developing. After Edgar Wright left the project, star Paul Rudd called his friend McKay to work on the film. The pair worked together on the script and McKay was considered to helm the project, too. Ultimately, that didn’t happen, and Peyton Reed came on board.
According to a new rumor though, McKay must have left a big impression on Marvel. Rumor has it he’s now in line to direct a new Marvel movie, something he’s been vocal about wanting. Which movie? We don’t know know yet but you know we’ll speculate below. Read More »

Ant-Man is coming to the MCU this summer. So is Ultron. But unlike in the comics, where Ant-Man (specifically Hank Pym) created Ultron, the two don’t seem to have much to do with other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, Tony Stark will be the one responsible for bringing the killer robot to life.
Naturally, fans have been complaining to Joss Whedon about the major change in Ultron’s origin story, and now the Avengers: Age of Ultron director has a response for them: Blame Edgar Wright. Well, Wright and the fact that Whedon just couldn’t find a good way to fit in Hank Pym. Find out why there’s no Hank Pym in Avengers after the jump. Read More »
