Edgar Wright Has Left Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man!’

The Astonishing Ant-ManIt’s all over the Interwebs that Edgar Wright (Shawn Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) has left Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man over “creative differences.”  While I think that this wasn’t a great move on Wright’s part–Marvel Studios movies tend to be huge, virtually guaranteeing that their whomever directs one of them access to bigger and better things, like Jon Favreau and Alan Taylor–I am less concerned than some.

The reason being, Wright brings a particular visual sense to things, though it’s nothing that can’t be replaced.

If the last time he worked on a Hollywood feature (2011’s The Green Hornet) didn’t make him never want to do it again, Michel Gondry would be an interesting choice.
