Everyone is now excited about Marvel Studios’ upcoming American superhero film, Ant-Man after watching the latest trailer, but fans of Edgar Wright are still disappointed that he departed Ant-Man due to creative differences.
American screenwriter, and director of The Avengers (2012) and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon was one of Wright’s fan, he took to Twitter to post a shot of himself holding a Cornetto ice cream cone as a solidarity with Wright after the announcement.
Now in a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Whedon finally speaks about Marvel Studios and Wright’s differences in their vision of the film, which led to Peyton Reed replacing Wright, while Paul Rudd and Adam McKay contributed to the Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish’s script:
“I don’t get it,” he said with a sigh. “I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man.
[Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong.
But I was very sad. Because I thought, This is a no-brainer. This is Marvel getting it exactly right. Whatever dissonance that came, whatever it was, I don’t understand why it was bigger than a marriage that seemed so right.
But I’m not going to say it was definitely all Marvel, or Edgar’s gone mad! I felt like they would complement each other by the ways that they were different. And, uh, somethin’ happened.”
“Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.
Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
Ant-Man is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015.
