Rumor: Adam McKay set to direct an upcoming Marvel movie

27 March 2015 1:06 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Back in October Adam McKay said he had been in talks with Marvel about helming an upcoming movie, and now Latino-Review is claiming that McKay is set to direct a film for the studio. McKay was one of several directors Marvel was considering to take over Ant-man after Edgar Wright left the project, and while he didn't land the gig, he did rewrite the script with star Paul Rudd. Now the question (if the site's report is true, of course) is which movie is Adam McKay attached »

Rumor: Adam McKay on Deck to Direct a Marvel Movie?

26 March 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back when Edgar Wright exited Ant-Man due to creative differences, there was some talk of Adam McKay possibly taking the position, but just before signing on the dotting line, he opted out and Peyton Reed took the gig. However, that didn’t mean McKay was out entirely. He joined the project in a screenwriting capacity and back in January we found out he’s getting a full-blown screenwriting credit on the film alongside Paul Rudd whereas Wright and Joe Cornish are only getting “story by” credits. Further proving McKay was doing well with Marvel, back in October, he revealed that he’s “starting to get into the early stages with Marvel” and that “maybe I would take on one of the characters ... discussions are definitely going on.” Now it looks like those discussions might pan out because we’ve got Latino Review reporting that McKay is indeed “in the on-deck »

Marvel Reportedly In Talks With Anchorman’s Adam McKay To Direct Superhero Film

26 March 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever the advocates of uncovering casting rumors and the ilk, Latino Review has served up another unconfirmed report today that states Marvel is allegedly looking to lock down Anchorman and Step Brothers helmer Adam McKay to direct one of the studio’s upcoming superhero films.

The outlet is, however, quick to note that this is still unconfirmed, though McKay playing an integral role in Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t exactly outside the realm of possibility. For one, the director served as co-writer on Ant-Man alongside working partner Paul Rudd — after he was once in line to direct the flick following the Edgar Wright kerfuffle — not to mention his comedic chops in the genre.

Now that the Russo brothers are locked in to direct Avengers: Infinity War, there aren’t many films on the studio’s slate that are vacant; in fact, those with empty directors chairs include Captain Marvel, »

Rumor: Adam McKay in Line to Direct a Marvel Studios Film

26 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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, […]

Marvel Reportedly Wants Adam McKay To Direct One Of Their Movies

26 March 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's the Marvel rumor of the day, which isn’t really much of a stretch when you think about it. Word is that the comic studio wants “Anchorman” and “Step Brothers” filmmaker Adam McKay to direct one of their movies. Now this shouldn’t be much of a big leap for the imagination. Marvel already tried to get McKay to direct “Ant-Man” after filmmaker Edgar Wright left the project last summer. McKay turned down the offer, seemingly because he wasn’t comfortable enough with the short window of pre-production he would be allowed, but McKay, friends with the movie’s star, did end up co-writing the screenplay with Paul Rudd himself (and changed it enough that original writers Wright and Joe Cornish only have a "story by” credit now). So what’s the movie McKay will helm? It’s unknown. Latino-Review says, "Adam McKay is in the on-deck spot to direct a Marvel movie. »

Marvel Pursues Adam McKay To Direct

26 March 2015 5:52 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Marvel Studios and Disney Pictures are reportedly trying to lock-in "Ant-Man" co-writer Adam McKay to direct one of their upcoming third phase films says Latino Review.

McKay was sought to direct "Ant-Man" when original director Edgar Wright walked away due to creative differences. Peyton Reed ultimately took the job, but McKay pulled off a complete rewrite of the screenplay with the help of the film's leading man Paul Rudd.

There are four announced upcoming films on the slate which have yet to secure directors - "Inhumans," "Thor: Ragnarok," "Captain Marvel" and "Black Panther" though the latter two are expected to seek a female and minority director respectively. »

Marvel Wants Adam McKay to Direct a Movie; Is It 'Inhumans'?

25 March 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new report claims that Marvel and Disney are trying to lock-in Ant-Man co-writer Adam McKay to direct one of their upcoming Phase Three Movies. Latino Review has the scoop. Though, they aren't quite sure which movie he is best suited for. Could it be Inhumans or Captain Marvel? And is Black Panther completely off the table?

As you may know, Marvel furiously tried to get Adam McKay, best known for his Will Ferrell collaborations such as Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Other Guys and Anchorman, to direct Ant-Man when original director Edgar Wright walked away due to creative differences. While Peyton Reed took the job, Adam McKay did step in for a complete rewrite of the screenplay, which he did alongside star and frequent collaborator Paul Rudd. It seems that Marvel is quite pleased with the work Adam McKay brought to the table in helping the »

Marvel Apparently Wants Adam McKay To Direct One Of Their Movies; Could It Be Inhumans?

25 March 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Marvel Studios parted ways with Edgar Wright, Adam McKay was one of the first people they turned to for Ant-Man. He chose not to direct because of the fairly tight production schedule, but did rewrite the script alongside Paul Rudd. They clearly haven't given up on him helming one of their movies though as Latino-Review reports that "Adam McKay is in the on-deck spot to direct a Marvel movie. Which Marvel movie remains hazy." They go on to theorise that it could be Inhumans that McKay tackles, and their argument makes a lot of sense. Hiring a director like James Gunn paid off in a big way for Marvel with Guardians of the Galaxy, and you can imagine McKay also being able to pull off the strange world inhabited by the likes of Black Bolt and Medusa. »

Has Captain Marvel Already Been Cast?

24 March 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the biggest questions Marvelites have regarding the Avengers cinematic universe is, who will be cast as Captain Marvel in the Phase 3 film? We already have an Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), a Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and a Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), so we.re all dying to hear which actress the folks behind the superhero movie giant will choose for their first solo super-heroine movie. Well, the latest word on the street is that they already did! According to Latino Review.s El Mayimbe, who just yesterday offered fans that small morsel about Margot Robbie.s Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad movie, Marvel is keeping the identity of their Carol Danvers tightly under wraps. Apparently we.ll be meeting her soon, though, as she.s said to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But . and this is a big but . Mayimbe clarifies that this is just a rumor »

One Big Change Marvel Made To Ant-Man During Reshoots

23 March 2015 3:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Marvel released the first Ant-Man synopsis last year, it labeled protagonist Scott Lang as a con-man. However, an updated version from January listed him as a "master thief." This doesn.t seem like much of a distinction, but it.s very possible that it.s a subject that.s been debated about behind-the-scenes. As is common for many major blockbusters, Ant-Man recently underwent reshoots, and now new reports are saying that one big change the Paul Rudd character is undergoing actually restores some of the criminal material Edgar Wright originally wrote him. A reporter from Latino-Review has posted on his Instagram that one of the changes that.s been made during the Ant-Man reshoots is making Scott Lang a straight-up criminal again, and in the process restoring a plot element from Wright.s draft that Marvel originally wanted cut. Badass Digest also mentions that the critically lauded Guardians of »

"Ant-Man" Reshoots Steering Back?

23 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Additional filming has taken place on Marvel's "Ant-Man" film and it turns out that some plot points cut from original director Edgar Wright's script drafts have been reintroduced during reshoots.

Badass Digest posted the report saying the Peyton Reed-directed film has undergone a few key changes that will bring the film more in-line with Wright's version including making Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) much more of a crook and con man rather than a 'master thief' which it was changed to after Wright left.

The success of "Guardians of the Galaxy" has probably paved the way for this, allowing Marvel's heroes to adopt more roguish qualities. »

Ant-Man: feels more like Guardians Of The Galaxy than Thor

22 March 2015 11:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bobby Cannavale reveals that Marvel's Ant-Man movie "felt more like Guardians Of The Galaxy"...

Right now, the focus of attention regarding upcoming Marvel Studios movies is on the imminent Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon's sequel arrives in UK cinemas next month, as it begins its global rollout. Our hopes for the film are not low.

There is, though, a second Marvel feature arriving this summer, and that's Ant-Man. You more than likely know the story so far on this one, that Edgar Wright developed the film over the best part of a decade, before parting ways with the project on the eve of production. Peyton Reed stepped in to direct, after Anchorman's Adam McKay had some rewrite work with Paul Rudd, and things are now set for an end of July release.

One of the members of the cast is Bobby Cannavale, and he's been chatting to »

"Ant-Man" Actor Talks Confusing Shoot

22 March 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the actors in Marvel's upcoming Summer film "Ant-Man" is "Boardwalk Empire" alum Bobby Cannavale in the role of Paxton, the current husband of the ex-wife (Judy Greer) of Paul Rudd's leading man character Scott Lang.

In a new interview with Cbr, the actor revealed that he found the actual film shoot baffling. It seems he's involved in a lot of blue screen work which he found a bit confusing and frustrating. Yet he appeared to have great fun when he was interacting with the other actors:

"It was a trip!. I've never been in anything like that before. There's a ton of people on this crew. it was just huge! And there's blue screen everywhere. I remember one time we were shooting at nights for three weeks. I hadn't seen anything behind me that wasn't a blue screen for three nights in a row.

Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Shoot Was Baffling Says Bobby Cannavale

21 March 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bobby Cannavale is set to play a character named Paxton in Marvel's upcoming summer adventure Ant-Man. He is the husband of Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) ex-wife Maggie, played by Judy Greer. Bobby Cannavale went into great detail about his experiences shooting the film, and even teases that his character may get shrunk down at some point in the story.

Talking with ComicBookResources, Bobby Cannavale actually called the Ant-Man shoot baffling. He riffs on the process of shooting all blue-screen and questions some of the methods utilizes to bring this new superhero to life. He says:

"It was a trip!. I've never been in anything like that before. There's a ton of people on this crew. it was just huge! And there's blue screen everywhere. I remember one time we were shooting at nights for three weeks. I hadn't seen anything behind me that wasn't a blue screen for three nights in a row. »

Though he couldn't dish out Ant-Man plot details for obvious reasons, Bobby Cannavale recently spoke lengthily with Comic Book Resources about his overall experience filming the upcoming Marvel adaptation in which he plays an original character named Paxton, who is the husband of Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) ex-wife Maggie (Judy Greer). "...It was a trip!" said the actor. "I’ve never been in anything like that before. There’s a ton of people on this crew. You could fit the entire Station Agent crew in… it was just huge!

The Rock is gonna Shake It Off and Anna Kendrick's got Booty in 'Lip Sync Battle' trailer

I don’t know why watching celebrities lip sync their hearts out to popular music that is so entertaining. All I know is that it is. The people at Spike TV know it too. Now the recurring bit from “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is all grown up and getting it’s own weekly show.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Lip Sync Battle.   From Paul Rudd to Emma Stone to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, past celebrities have brought their A-Game to the battlefield. Will the new contenders, including John Krasinski and John Legend, be able to live up to their predecessors? Will any former champions return to claim their title?   »

Mike Gold: One Pill Makes You Larger, One Pill Makes You Ant-Man

19 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The cool part about that first Ant-Man movie trailer is when Scott Lang asks Hank Pym if it is too late to change his code name.

The costume was nice and the scenes with Paul Rudd riding an ant were fun, and I’ll go see it and all that – but for me, the big “sell” is that Haley Atwell (Agent Carter) and John Slattery, the “older” Howard Stark, are in it. No knock on the character and certainly none on Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, and both seem like great casting choices.

The fact is, Ant-Man is Marvel’s Aquaman. No, I don’t mean Ant-Man is another really lame rip-off of the Sub-Mariner, I mean… well, about a thousand years ago Saturday Night Live did a superhero party skit and all the other heroes mocked the poor bastard because all he could do was get real small.

10 Most Outlandish Ant-Man Rumours

13 March 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Just like Guardians Of The Galaxy before it, Ant-Man is considered Marvel’s riskiest movie to date by some. Whether it proves everyone wrong by being a hit critically and commercially remains to be seen, but it’s a safe bet to say it will based on past experience.

Edgar Wright may no longer be in the director’s chair (he’s been replaced by Yes Man’s Peyton Reed), but his script remains, albeit with a pretty significant sounding overhaul from star Paul Rudd and Anchorman scribe Adam McKay. That alone sounds promising, and when you throw in the fact that the cast also includes Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll, there’s no reason to think Marvel don’t have yet another hit on their hands.

Despite the fact that Ant-Man doesn’t have the same level of hype around it as Avengers: Age Of Ultron, it »
