You know what’s the best way to detract from negative press? Take an alternate route to getting fan excitement back on track. And pardon our cynicism, but given all the negative press surrounding “Ant-Man”—Edgar Wright bailing on the project, for reasons detailed here—the timing of Marvel announcing the director of “Dr. Strange” feels pretty convenient. Nonetheless, the studio has found the filmmaker to helm the story of the Sorcerer Supreme.

Is this week’s “Ant-Man”/Marvel drama finally drawing to a close? It’s been such a whirlwind of emojis I don’t even know what to think anymore. Yet who to believe? Earlier today, three men emerged as the finalists to fill the director’s chair on “Ant-Man” recently vacated by filmmaker Edgar Wright after eight years of development and what sounds like a last minute losing of nerve from Marvel in favor of something more safe and familiar.

Guardians, James Gunn, Ant-Man
So if you believed the morning rumors, which honestly smelled a little bit more like horseshit than usual, James Gunn, director of Marvel’s “The Guardians Of The Galaxy” was going to take over “Ant-Man” from the now departed Edgar Wright. Hey, Gunn was understanding of the problems between mom and dad, and hell, his Marvel movie was to 2014 what Wright’s “Ant-Man” was to 2015—a risk. Presumably Gunn’s done a great job of blending wacky comedy and “risk” along with the narrative foundations of what Marvel needs and expects for their tentpoles, so he’d make a good choice, right?

If the Edgar Wright and Marvel split over “Ant-Man” is actually less amicable than originally suggested, maybe it is more akin to a “divorce” as fans have been putting it? After all, Wright developed the project for Marvel for eight years only to walk away late last week allegedly after a script rewrite that Wright agreed to, but didn’t love.

It’s called the news dump. You don’t drop news on a Friday at the end of the day, just hours before the Memorial Day weekend because you want people to read the news. In fact, this strategy hopes that by Monday you’ll have forgotten and life will go on.

“Life is giving us a chance.” Yep, it’s a bunch of criminals in outer space with a chance to do good and redeem themselves. It’s Marvel’s “The Guardians Of The Galaxy,” an untested, mostly unknown property that they’re trying to make into a new franchise. No one knows it?
