Jaws Drop as Edgar Wright Leaves Marvel’s ANT-MAN
By Dan Casey on May 23, 2014
File this under “What? Noooo!”: according to a report from Variety, Edgar Wright has left Marvel’s Ant-Man and will no longer be directing the film. Marvel Studios has already found a new director to take Wright’s place, but there’s no word as to who exactly that may be. Joe Cornish, perhaps? Marvel and Wright decided to end their creative partnership “due to differences in their vision of the film,” in a joint statement. It seems like an amicable split between both parties and this will not affect the film’s release date of July 17, 2015. Rather, it will affect comment sections across the internet, which will inevitably light up in a tidal wave of WTFs, Nooooo’s, and Ugh, reallys.
We will update this story with more details as they become available. We will also update our faces once they revert from the utterly stunned expression they seem to be locked in at the moment.
