It’s official, today is the first day of shooting on Marvel’s “Ant-Man”. Peyton Reed is helming the project which has been in development at the studio since 2006.
Reed replaces original director Edgar Wright who stepped away from the project earlier this year due to creative differences over the script. Reed broke the news in a tweet:
Alright, gang. Today is the day. LET’S. GET. small. #AntMan

Most of the original cast remains, including Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas in the leads. Patrick Wilson walked away from his role due to scheduling issues caused by the delay.
