Edgar Wright Leaves Ant-Man Movie
Marvel Studos confirms director has departed from project...
There has been mounting speculation about the new Ant-Man film since test footage was shown at Comic-Con in 2012 - but now it's been announced that director Edgar Wright has left his role as director of the film.
In a statement, Marvel Studios announced the director had exited the movie "due to differences in their version of the film".
It also added that a new director for the project will be announced soon.
According to Deadline, the split is said to be 'amicable', despite the creative differences.
Wright had been attached to direct the comic book-based feature since 2006.
The film is still set to be released in July 2015, with Paul Rudd starring as the hero Scott Lange.
