Marvel is reportedly looking at Louis D’Esposito to direct Ant-Man


With the recent and unexpected departure of Edgar Wright from the production of Ant-Man, many began to wonder if Marvel was going to postpone the filming and even push back the release date of the film. Now it seems that Marvel may have already found its replacement director.

Word comes from Elmayimbe from latino-review via his twitter account:


While its not direct confirmation that Louis D’Esposito has taken the gig, it does make sense. With D’Esposito being a key player in the MCU and its production over the years, he has taken a more hands on role recently with his directing of the more recent Marvel One-Shot films.

Only time will tell at this point if he is taking on the directorial role for Ant-Man, but at this point Marvel needs to fill the spot fast if they want to get the film made on time.

Ant-Man is currently set for July 17th 2015 release date.
