'Ant-Man' Will Still Retain Edgar Wright's Visuals


Director Peyton Reed will keep 'cool' elements that Wright created for the upcoming superhero movie, says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

"Ant-Man" may have parted ways with Edgar Wright, but the connection with the filmmaker will still be felt in the film. To /Film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explains that Peyton Reed who is now attached to the project may retain the DNA which Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish created when they wrote the draft for the movie.

"Yeah. It wasn't the whole movie and there are new elements in the movie obviously, now, that [Wright] was not involved in. But there are some segments that are awesome and will be brought to life in some incarnation," Feige says, "Peyton certainly has all that material and is a talented enough and a secure enough guy to notice if something is really cool and go 'No reason to change that, that's great.' Or if he's got his own spin on something to go and adapt it from there."

In another interview with Empire Online, Feige assures that "Ant-Man" is still on track for its planned August 18 start date despite Wright's departure. "Our schedule is not that dissimilar right now from 'Iron Man 3' and the original 'Avengers'," he explains, "And Ant-Man is not that visually complicated as either of those two films."

"Ant-Man" has Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, Michael Pena, Corey Stoll and more lined up in the cast ensemble. The action movie is slated for a July 17, 2015 release in the United States.
