File this under well duh, he didn’t say.
Looks like Edgar Wright is opening up on why he was replaced, or why he replaced himself on Marvel’s Ant Man production.
According to him, he was the writer and director for the film, and suddenly they’re doing at least one draft without him, putting him outside the creative process
In an interview on Playback Podcast from Variety, Wright sort of spilled the beans on the creative differences that caused him to give up Ant-Man:
“The most diplomatic answer is I wanted to make a Marvel movie but I don’t think they really wanted to make an Edgar Wright movie. I was the writer-director on it and then they wanted to do a draft without me, and having written all my other movies, that’s a tough thing to move forward. Suddenly becoming a director for hire on it, you’re sort of less emotionally invested and you start to wonder why you’re there, really.”
