Mckay's tweeted that it was a scheduling conflict with previous commitments that caused him to drop out. But if that's the case why go into negotiations knowing that you might not be able to do the job? He just wasted everyone's time.

He probably threw out a number that would of been high enough for him to reconsider the previous commitments.  Once Marvel said no to his high dollar amount, he bailed out.  Pretty normal for most negotiations.  Would prefer the guy who directed Zombie land anyway.  The other two directors seem to have only comedy under thier belts.

 July 2015?! Can you make a Marvel movie in a year?

 I just don't see how it can be done. Sticking with the original release date, at this point is stupid.

At this point, they are gonna have to push back the release date.

The Zombieland guy has the most potential to get it right on this short list.. Also, scrap the whole Pym/Lang story and just use Pym.. Rudd is NOT superhero (even one of Antman/Giantman's small stature) material..

 Interesting that they seem to be adamant about hiring a comedy director.  I had assumed that the creative differences between Marvel and Wright were based on Wright wanting more of a comedy than Marvel did.  It would seem like bringing in another comedy director might not solve the problem.  Then again, maybe I'm wrong about the Wright/Marvel split.

Dear Marvel Studios,

Call up Edgar Wright. Apologize to him. Rehire him to do Ant-Man. Relax your grip. You'll be so glad you did. 

Sincerely,

Your Fans

Rawson Thurber who directed We're the Miller's has reportedly passed on the job as well. That just leaves Ruben Fleischer, if he passes it's time to piss on the fire and call the dogs. Fiege needs to suck it up, admit the movie was a bad idea and scrap it, before it goes any further.
