Like everyone else, I’m unhappy to hear that Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The World’s End) will no longer be directing Marvel’s Ant-Man movie, since I like his unique visual sense. However, I still want to see Paul Rudd (as Scott Lang) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) super-heroing together. Particularly after seeing footage of them interacting at last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, as shown here:
Both appeared at the con for the first time to promote the upcoming film, and they looked happy to be there, as shown in these clips. Maybe they’re just great actors. They were accompanied by Evangeline Lilly (who will be playing Hank’s daughter Hope), Corey Stoll (Darren Cross, Yellowjacket, the villain), and director Peyton Reed, showing off his geek credentials and talking about how this was his 20th year going to the con. The movie is due out July 17, 2015.
