Ant-Man was supposed to begin filming around the beginning of summer, but when Edgar Wright and Marvel parted ways in mid-May over the studio’s massive changes in the script, Marvel began a hunt for a new director. After spending a few weeks looking for a replacement, the studio settled on Yes Man director Peyton Reed with Adam McKay working on the script followed by a last-minute polish by writers Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer.
Now we’re at the end of the summer, and filming has finally begun. Hit the jump for more. The film stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015. [Update: We've added the full Marvel press release after the jump, which reveals that John Slattery has been added to the cast presumably as 1970s Howard Stark (possibly confirming this story), in addition to Judy Greer, T.I., and more. Additionally, final credits on the screenplay still haven't been revealed and likely won't be until the Writers Guild of America arbitration.]
