This news breaks my heart. Edgar Wright has officially departed from directing duties of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man movie. Here is the official statement about the news:
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.
Damn it! With Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas joining the cast, I was really looking forward this movie. Wright was perfect to direct this movie, and I am guessing it was Marvel Studios that made this decision. Wright has his own unique style that makes the even most outlandish ideas work perfectly, and they were probably cracking the whip on his vision of the character. Stupid move Marvel. This movie is not going to be as good as it was going to be, and I am sure they are going to kick themselves in the ass when they get some no name director to attempt this character. Let me know your thoughts about this.
