The story so far: Edgar Wright has departed Marvel's Ant-Man movie, on the eve of production. Since then, Anchorman's Adam McKay has turned the job down, and it's said that Dodgeball's Rawson Marshall Thurber passed as well. Meanwhile, Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer was linked, but looks unlikely to take the film on.
Now, two more names have been linked with the job, although one of them appears to have been debunked already. Deadline reports that Take Me Home Tonight's Michael Dowse and Neighbors/Bad Neighbours' Nicholas Stoller are both in the frame, although doubt has already been thrown on Stoller's candidature.
Still, if either of those names are in the mix, then it sounds as though Marvel is doing a guided tour of prominent comedy directors in Hollywood. »
