Ant-Man Gets New Director, Synopsis, and a Re-Write

     Although my huge disappointment with the loss of Edgar Wright on the Ant-Man film project, I am a little excited for the news that has been announced.  Officially, Peyton Reed, director of Yes Man and Bring It On, has been listed, as well as a script adjustments by Anchorman writer Adam McKay.
     The director isn't what I'd initially would have thought, but adding Adam McKay seems like a good choice after reading the official synopsis:
     "Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world."
     So they are going with the Robert Kirkman, of Invincible and The Walking Dead fame, written Ant-Man series- and that is what I'm most excited for- The Irredeemable Ant-Man.  A hero that uses his powers to spy on Ms. Marvel in the shower and punch old guys in the nuts, what more could we want?
