Head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, has defended the company’s decision to let go Edgar Wright from directing duties on Ant-Man, saying that creative differences caused the split.
Wright had been developing Ant-Man since 2006, before anyone knew there would end up being a Marvel 'Cinematic Universe'. This may have a part in what Feige called creative differences, seeing as many speculate that Wright wanted to have a stand alone film, with nothing to do with The Avengers or any other Marvel heroes. Feige did say he wishes it could of worked out with Edgar, but knew it was better to part ways during pre-production, rather than once production had started.
Feige also rejected the idea that Marvel didn’t want to take risks and do anything too out there. “The notion that Marvel was scared, the vision was too good, too far out for Marvel is not true. And I don't want to talk too much about that, because I think our movies speak to that.”
Ant-Man is released July 17, 2015, and keep your ears open for more Marvel news during the San Diego Comic Con.
