Rawson Thurber Passes On Marvel’s Ant-Man Offer

This is Infamous

In light of the good news coming from Marvel Studios tonight with the news that Scott Derrickson has been given the nod to direct DOCTOR STRANGE, that sort of information does come with a price. And in this case it’s as the silver lining to distract us from the very dark cloud that continues to build on ANT-MAN. Earlier today, we scooped that Rawson Thurber had been offered the job in the hopes of settling down the movie’s rocky road to production and getting things back on pace to hit that July 2015 release date Marvel is still dead set on. Unfortunately, the ANT-MAN nightmare for Marvel continues, as sources tell us Thurber has indeed passed on the film, sending the studio right back to the drawing board to find someone actually willing to touch this movie with a 10-foot pole. It certainly won’t be Ruben Fleischer whose name popped up in the list of contenders but who may be doing something with the new GHOSTBUSTERS. He doesn’t want anybody’s sloppy seconds… Strike that. We’re onto sloppy fourths at this point, leaving Marvel to start from scratch once again if they want to find someone stupid enough to sign onto ANT-MAN right now.

For a movie so close to being made, it sure feels like it's slipping into development hell.

They really should just take some time and start over.

I won't mind if they make Paul Rudd Hank instead of Scott. Least then we can see the relationship of him and the Wasp develop on screen.

Yeah, Disney had to f--- everything up by having problems with Edgar Wright.
