Well, this is unfortunate. It looked like Marvel’s Ant-Man was finally turning away from its bad publicity and on the upswing after the studio released the Comic-Con poster, but now there’s a bit more bad news that this production has to endure. Deadline reports that Patrick Wilson has left the movie due to a scheduling conflict (the film’s start date was delayed after Edgar Wright left), and fellow actors Matt Gerald and Kevin Weisman won’t be in the movie either – their characters were apparently written out of the most recent draft of the script.
This isn’t a huge loss, but Wilson in particular has been doing some excellent work in recent years and it would have been cool to see him join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ll see if someone brings this up during the fan Q&A portion of tomorrow’s Marvel panel, but for now, this seems like another little bump in an insanely bumpy road for Ant-Man.
