The elephant in the room was not largely addressed during Marvel’s Comic-Con “Ant-Man” panel. Onstage, there was little talk of the older iteration of “Ant-Man” that was going to be directed by a filmmaker you might have heard of named Edgar Wright (though there was a guy loyally standing outside of the convention center all day with a sign that said “Edgar Wright was right”). If the “Ant-Man” snafu in May was a PR disaster for the studio, all was forgotten by the Comic-Com faithful once the celebrity glad-handing began and teaser footage unspooled (ahh, those fickle fans, who initially insisted they’d no longer pay to see this film…)

As fanboys, comic book lovers and more descend upon San Diego for the start of Comic-Con today, it means a crushing rollout of teases, glimpses and hints of upcoming projects big and small. And certainly one of the most buzzed is Marvel's "Ant-Man" which finds the studio in a rare position of being on the back foot after the sudden departure of Edgar Wright. But fans shouldn't worry too much as apparently some of the visual sequences he dreamed up may be seen in new director Peyton Reed's movie.

"Here we are now, 14 years since the first Marvel movie I worked on. At that point it had been eight years and for about those eight years people had been asking ‘How much longer gonna last?’ ‘When are people gonna get tired of these movies?' And my answer always was ‘People only get tired if a whole slew of terrible ones come out’. And it was our job to make sure that doesn’t happen," Marvel honco Kevin Feige said last week. "If there are other people out there interested in that not happening as well, I’m all for it!" And while there have been patchy superhero movies (see Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man" for example), for Marvel at least, they've kept the quality level mostly consistent, so why not continue?

It would seem that as Kevin Feige continues on the promotional run for "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it has also turned into the "Ant-Man" apology and don't-worry-it's-gonna-be-good-tour as well. Earlier this week, Feige stood up for the new choice of director Peyton Reed, and said the upcoming movie will be the "best version" possible.

Peyton Reed, Ant-Man
It's now a year until "Ant-Man" rolls into theatres nationwide, and so begins Marvel's long campaign of winning over fanboys still not pleased that Edgar Wright, who had been with the project for years, was forced to bow out after creative clashes with the studio. And that's not all, as Marvel will also have to convince the die hard faithful that Peyton Reed, primarily known for comedies like "Bring It On" and "Yes Man," is the right guy to sit in the saddle and see the movie through. Well, there has been no better advocate and visionary for Marvel movies than Kevin Feige, and he's pumped about the Reed and what that means for "Ant-Man."

Peyton Reed, Ant-Man
So, do you want to know just how far away from Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's vision for "Ant-Man" Marvel wants to move from? Well, creative differences already bounced Wright from helming the film, the script got a punch up by Adam McKay, and Peyton Reed is now directing. But apparently, that's not all.

It looks like "The Hunger Games" pals Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth are eager to spend their time away from the YA franchise together as well. Future bromance? We'll see, but this project does sound interesting. The pair will star in the revenge western "By Way Of Helena."

The drama around Marvel’s “Ant-Man” has finally settled. Edgar Wright has moved on, Peyton Reed is the new director and “Anchorman” filmmaker Adam McKay is going to pen the rewrite (though c’mon people, no one’s going to leak Wright and Joe Cornish’s draft? That’s something everyone wants to read). What’s left other than to see the film next summer? Well, more details obviously since the Internets can’t resist revealing everything about a movie. Some spoilers below obviously.

Now that "Ant-Man" has a director in Peyton Reed ("Bring It On," "Fantastic Four"), with Adam McKay rewriting the script, the saga over Edgar Wright's sudden departure is over, right? Wrong. His exit still looms large over the movie, and likely will for a while, until he officially weighs in on what happened, or Marvel steps out from their string of press releases to talk about it. Until then, the rumor mill will continue to churn.
