The nightmare that is becoming Ant-Man has hit another stumbling block. Adam McKay, one of the three director’s on Marvel short list to replace Edgar Wright (seen here) has now left the running. With the director of Anchorman out, that leaves We're the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber and Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer.
I haven’t seen We're the Millers, but Zombieland had the right combinations of comedy and horror. Could Fleischer be the one to wrangle both comedy and superhero action?
