No longer the director of the anticipated Marvel film.

Variety is reporting that The World’s End director Edgar Wright has left Marvel‘s Ant-Man. There is no one to fill the spot currently but the company is on the lookout for a new director and Marvel have said, “a new director will be announced shortly.”

[blockquote]Marvel and Wright parted ways “due to differences in their vision of the film,” the company and director said in a statement.[/blockquote]

The news is shocking considering Wright has been attached to the Ant-Man project since 2006 and would visit San Diego Comic Con to keep fans up to date on their progress of the projects development. According to the report, the decision to go their separate ways was mutual between the company and Wright, but doesn’t give us much solace on the fact that he left due to creative differences.

The film is still scheduled to be released July 17, 2015.
