Edgar Wright Left Ant-Man Due to Script Changes


Edgar Wright’s sudden departure from Marvel’s big screen adaptation of Ant-Man was talk of the town these past few days. Wright himself issued a polite statement saying that he left due to “differences in vision,” and several other people associated with Marvel chimed in to confirm that they are not siding with either side and are just sad to see Wright go.

Apparently, the conflict happened because an unhappy Kevin Feige ordered rewrites to the screenplay already written by Wright and Joe Cornish. After clashing with Feige over the new direction that Feige wanted to follow, Wright left the project and took all his heads of department with him.

Now, this is not the first time that Feige has had creative differences with his talent. Whedon and Favreau have admitted to having clashes with the Marvel head honcho. And while both have stayed, there are others like Kenneth Branagh, Joe Johnson, Terrence Howard and several Hulk actors who chose to leave.
