Strange turn of events from Marvel this evening.
It would appear Edgar Wright has stepped down as director from the long running development of Ant-Man, one of Marvels Phase 3 films. Variety reports that Marvel does have another director in the pipeline, but aren’t saying who at this moment in time.
What seems strange about this development is that Wright has been attached to this project since it was announced back in 2006 and even showed test footage to an audience at Comic-Con in 2012.
In a statement given by the now former director, Wright and the studio split up “Due to differences in their vision of the film.”
It’s interesting to see what will happen now with this surprising news. But as there hasn't officially been any footage, its hard to say what can be expected from the film.
Ant-Man is currently slated for a July 2015 release.
