Welp, Edgar Wright Isn't Making 'Ant-Man' Anymore

Here's some shit news to dampen your holiday weekend: Edgar Wright has dropped out of Marvel's Ant-Man. Though Wright has been connected to the project since 2006--two years before Iron Man even broke the seal on the whole Marvel Universe--today the director and studio jointly announced a parting of ways, officially due to "differences in their vision of the film." Assumedly, that means Wright wanted to make the Edgar Wright film we've been anticipating for eight years, while Marvel no doubt wanted to maintain the status quo of having their universe's loudest and most distinct voice be Samuel L. Jackson's.

While the change definitely impacts how much we're looking forward to an Ant-Man movie, it does not affect the film's July 17, 2015 release date, and "a new director [less interesting than Edgar Wright] will be announced shortly."
