  2. Matt spears says:

    It’s a movie. We will watch and at the end of the day it will be throne into the shit pile or the holy shit pile!! Either way I’m glad they are trying.

  3. McGillicutte says:

    I can’t see an Edgar Wright fan boycott happening, though I was sad to see his vision going away: hopefully some of his artistic DNA will remain.

  4. xraystyle says:

    Still super interested in Ant Man one of my faves!

  5. Scott says:

    I care more about Ant Man now than I did when Edgar Wright was attached.  From everything I read, It didn’t look like his vision for the movie was going to blend with the existing Marvel film universe. 

    I feel bad that he doesn’t get to make the movie he worked on for so long, but it shouldn’t be about him. 
    It should be about making the best Ant Man movie possible, that also fits into (and enhances) the existing Marvel film universe.

    Please pseudos. So tired of you saying Ant Man is dead without EW.  Get over it.

  7. SerenityValley84 says:

    I care about Ant Man, but I’m probably in the minority.

    Wish I were there! Any video of the moon dance planned? ?
