Marvel Studios is still trying to figure out what to do with Ant-Man post-Edgar Wright and have brought on two new writers to help finish off the script.
Two writers that made the 2010 Black List for their un-produced screenplay Die In A Gunfight, have been tapped by Marvel to give the Ant-Man script the final treatment that the studio believes it needs. Their Black List script isn’t the only work the pair have done together as they have had their horror script Haunt produced and have been working with Jonathan Levine on the Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot.
I find it equal parts amazing and horrifying that Marvel is still bringing on writers for Ant-Man and have yet to announce a push back of the June 17 release date. The studio and production team have close to 11 months to film an entire movie, do the visual effects and the rest of the post-production work, advertise the film, and get it out to the theaters. At this point in the game, no one would blame Marvel for pushing the release back a month or two. It was originally suppose to release later in the summer, but moved up after DC pushed back Batman vs Superman, so even delaying it one month shouldn’t hurt them.
Here is the official synopsis for Ant-Man in case you needed a reminder:
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (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.
How are you feeling about Ant-Man? Would you be okay with Marvel pushing the release back if it meant we were given a more polished film? Give your thoughts in the comment section below!
