Well that was unexpected…. Here is the official statement:
“Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on ANT-MAN due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”
After being attached to the film since its inception it is a huge shame to see him leaving a film he helped develop and write. I wonder what the differences were?
Lets hope Marvel picks a great director to replace him. RIP Edgar Wrights Ant Man, we barely knew thee.
