According to Superherohype.com, Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) has left Ant-Man. The reason being? It appears as if there is creative differences between the studio and the director. Marvel Studios released the following 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”.
What could the creative differences be? Now of course, the next big question is who will direct Ant-Man?
Synopsis: The film follows a biochemist Dr. Hank Pym using his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects. Paul Rudd will play Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Michael Douglas stars as Hank Pym.
Ant-Man is written by Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) and features Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson and Corey Stoll.
Ant-Man arrives July 17, 2015.
