For a long time, Guardians of the Galaxy was the black sheep of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that title now belongs to Ant-Man, a risky movie for the studio made even more challenging by the recent exit of director Edgar Wright. While Marvel Studios insists this superhero adventure about a diminutive crime fighter will still land on its July 2015 release date, sources close to the production don't see that happening.

Will Ant-Man be delayed? Right now, all obvious signs point to 'yes'. Edgar Wright is a beloved commodity in fanboy circles, and he has a lot of close friends in Hollywood. While it was believed that Marvel had a backup plan in mind, with a director waiting in the wings, that simply wasn't true, and Marvel president Kevin Feige is having a tough time finding a replacement.
