Edgar Wright Exits ‘Antman’

Edgar Wright has left the Marvel Universe.

The “Cornetto Trilogy” and “Scott Pilgrim” director and the Disney-owned Marvel Studios announced in a joint statement that he has left the big screen adaptation of “Ant-Man,” which stars Paul Rudd.

“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,” a statement read. “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.”

The film — which also features Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, and Michael Peña — is part of the next phase of Marvel films, which includes this summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
