You may have forgotten about Collider, the sci-fi film initially announced in 2012 with Edgar Wright attached to direct and J.J. Abrams producing. Since then, Wright departed Ant-Man and began prepping two new projects, including Baby Driver — but Collider has not been forgotten, and the project has just picked up a new writer to take a crack at the screenplay.

Marvel is all about bigness. In the last couple years, the comic-book company turned Hollywood goliath has become become synonymous with a certain kind of blockbuster that’s so large it metastasizes beyond its own borders and crosses over into others. Marvel doesn’t make movies; they make universes. But you can paint yourself into a corner by perpetually topping yourself. At a certain point, how much bigger can you get?

Joining Elgort in the film is Lily James, star of this year’s surprisingly wonderful and enchanting live-action Cinderella.

In case you were not aware, there’s been a little dispute over at Marvel regarding the Ant-Man writing credits.

While Marvel intended to give Wright and Cornish “story by” credit only, the pair will now get a screenwriting credit following the results of their recent dispute.

It's futile to continue to talk about what could've been when it comes to Edgar Wright, Marvel and Ant-Man. For their own separate reasons, they parted ways, the film was rewritten by Adam McKay (Anchorman) and star Paul Rudd, and was eventually directed by Peyton Reed. And that may very well wind up being a great Ant-Man movie (the trailer certainly looked promising enough)! But, if we're to believe Avengers director Joss Whedon, Edgar Wright's Ant-Man could have been the best movie Marvel ever made.
