Edgar Wright

I bring you some sad news today: Edgar Wright will no longer be directing Ant-Man. According to a joint statement released by Marvel and Wright, he will be stepping down from the director’s chair, despite having worked on the movie since 2006. The statement said:

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.

For many fans, including myself, this will no doubt come as disappointing news, but at least the film is still moving forward. What do you think about Wright stepping down? Who do you think they should find to replace him? Sound off in the comments!
