ANT-MAN: Kevin Feige And The Cast Of ANT-MAN Talk More About Edgar Wright's Departure

As we all already know, Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel due to creative differences. The writer and director was apparently presented with a version of his script which had undergone a rewrite (without his knowledge) to help better integrate the movie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

New details have been revealed about the behind the scenes goings on following Edgar Wright's Ant-Man departure courtesy of Kevin Feige, Paul Rudd, and Evangline Lilly. When Entertainment Weekly asked Kevin Feige about this, he replied:"It is true that there were disagreements about the direction the script should take. Everything was aboveboard. Everything was done with everybody else’s knowledge. There was a sense of ‘We’re going in this direction, you’re staying in this direction—maybe it’s best that we end as friends.’"

Paul Rudd meanwhile says he was left feeling "devastated" when he learned the news, while Evangeline Lilly's reveals that, "Marvel knew [that first revised screenplay] wasn’t good. They just knew it was in the direction they wanted." It was then that Adam McKay and Rudd himself took a crack at the screenplay, with newcomers Gabriel ­Ferrari and Andrew Barrer later coming in for a final polish (however, they don't appear to have received a writing credit, so it could be that Marvel stuck with the previous iteration or that what they contributed wasn't enough to warrant a mention). "The bones of it is really Edgar and Joe," Rudd adds. "It’s been an emotional roller coaster, but I’m very excited now."
