ant1July 31, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Ant-Man, one of the original members of the team in “The Avengers” will remain out of the cast list of the upcoming adaptation of “The Avengers” that would be directed by Joss Whedon. Few hours before declaring the cast of “The Avengers” at San Diego Comic-Con International, director Joss Whedon said to media sources that Ant-Man would not be used in the film adaptation. However, the Ant-Man is not being kept out unreasonably. Writer/director Edgar Wright who has written the script has explained the reason behind the exclusion of Ant-man and justified that the inclusion of the famous character of Ant-man in the present film is next to impossible.

Edgar Wright said to a media source that he had talked with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios on the character of Ant-Man and whether it could be included in the film adaptation. He maintained that the script that has been written by him does not follow the pattern in which the comic proceeds. He told that the script’s chronology and its plot are such that it “wouldn’t really fit in with what they [comic series] do”. He added that his film script is basically an introduction to the character of Ant-man and the inclusion of the character in the film did not feel right to introduce the Ant-man in the film.

However, Edgar Wright did not dismiss the chances of the appearance of Ant-Man in the later “The Avenger” series films or in a film that revolves around “Ant-Man”. However, he reiterated that in the present angle in which the film has been written there is no place for the Ant-Man.
