Marvel Studios already has tapped a new director, but has yet to reveal who landed the job.
The company and Wright parted ways “due to differences in their vision of the film, Marvel and the director said in a statement.
The decision to move on is amicable, they added, and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015.
Wow, so this sucks — and is especially surprising considering his long-time involvement on the project. Marvel announced Wright’s attachment to ‘Ant-Man’ in 2006 alongside ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Incredible Hulk.’
I hope they’re still going to use his and Joe Cornish’s script, so at least part of his stamp will be on it.
