Fuck. “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 was a large part of the reason this project was so exciting. It’s too bad Marvel seems to be walking back on its efforts to hire interesting filmmakers with distinctive voices to direct their movies. That was one of the things the studio seemed to do right.
As Devin Faraci says, “Good luck to whoever they hire to Brett Ratner this one.”
