I don’t think ANYONE saw this coming.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Wright and Marvel could not agree on the direction the film should take.
Marvel Studios and Wright issued a joint statement Friday announcing 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.”
Wright is most known for “The Cornetto Trilogy” (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End), starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
What do YOU guys and gals think of the departure? Who would YOU like to see take Wright’s place?
