The inner turmoil that Marvel Studios has experienced over times with their directors is no secret, and Ant-Man may be the most high profile dispute yet. However, since original director Edgar Wright’s departure, Marvel Studios has shown no signs of slowing down production on the film. In fact, even though most of the cast had not seen a script as of a month ago, it seems as though the first official still of Paul Rudd as Hank Pym has surfaced.
Appearing against a gloomy San Fransisco backdrop, Rudd is obviously keeping the facade of seriousness that many a Marvel Studios film have used prior to a film release, since grit is just good marketing.
Marvel Studios has Ant-Man planned for July 17th, 2015, and will be the first film in their Phase 3 as the studio’s first release after the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ant-Man stars Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang.
