Edgar Wright Leaves Marvel’s Ant-Man
This is especially shocking since Wright has been attached to the project since 2006 as a screenwriter. To put it in perspective that’s before the first Iron Man. Test footage was shown at San Diego Comic-Con in 2012.
This was an “amicable” decision and doesn’t impact the film’s release date on July 17, 2015. It had originally been set to be released November 6, 2015.
Marvel and Wright parted ways “due to differences in their vision of the film,” the company and director said in a statement.
Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly star in the film, with Corey Stoll, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson.
