Three cast members leave Marvel’s Ant-Man

1 hour ago

Marvel may have found a new director for Ant-Man in Peyton Reed (Down with Love), but it seems the fallout from Edgar Wright’s exit has now led to the departure of three cast members, with Deadline revealing that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen), Matt Gerald (Dexter) and Kevin Weisman (Hello Ladies) have all left the film.

According to the site Marvel executives “adamantly dispute” that any of the departures are due to creative issues, with Wilson said to have encountered a scheduling conflict due to the delay in production, and Gerald and Weisman’s characters having been written out of the lastest draft of the script.

Ant-Man is set to feature as part of Marvel’s big Hall H presentation at Comic-Con tomorrow night, with Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) featuring on the panel and Evangeline Lilly also tipped to appear.

Marvel is looking at Joaquin Phoenix for Doctor Strange

4 hours ago

Take this news with a massive grain of salt, but according to TheWrap, Marvel Studios is currently looking at three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (The Master, Walk the Line) for Doctor Strange

There is supposedly no deal in place yet, but multiple sources say Phoenix is in consideration for the role and has even had discussions with the studio. Jeff Sneider, who reported the story, has cautioned fans on Twitter that even he remained skeptical about the story, but that “all roads lead back to Joaquin.” He does say that he has “absolute certainty” that the role will not go to Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch, who have remained on the studio’s wishlist for over a month now.

We’ll likely hear an official announcement about the Doctor Strange casting soon, as well as word on its official release date (which we think is in 2016).
