Wright, of course, is famous for his Cornetto Trilogy of 'Shaun Of The Dead,' 'Hot Fuzz' and 'The World's End.'

“Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film,” a statement issued by the studio read.

“The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”
