Marvel’s Ant-Man has been in development for years. Edgar Wright seems to be out of the project at this point after spending many years developing it. Wright was going to helm the film, but later dropped out. ‘Ant-Man‘ is now in the hands of Peyton Reed is who has taken over the ‘Ant-Man‘ project for Marvel. Variety stated in a recent post that fans may not need to worry about production delays moving back the film’s release date. Marvel is sticking with its July 17, 2015 release date for the comic book based film.
