Michael Douglas disappointed by Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man departure

“He’s a wonderful talent”

Michael Douglas has been speaking about Edgar Wright’s sudden departure from Ant-Man, with the star expressing his regret that things turned out the way they did.

“Yeah, he’s a wonderful talent,” said Douglas. “It was very disappointing, yeah. It was a big disappointment, and more so for him because he had a lot of years invested.”

“He was really the one initially who got them to even consider it, you know, the screenplay that he wrote. [But] I’m not the producer on it and I’m an actor for hire.”

“Marvel certainly has a pretty amazing track record, rightly or wrongly, so I think it just was that kind of combination where although they like the idea of somebody with Edgar’s individual spirit, maybe it just collided with an operation. I think they’re all on relatively decent terms.”

Douglas did go on to confirm that he will be appearing at Comic-Con next month, with Marvel set to feature Ant-Man as part of its panel, before the film is released on 17 July 2015.

      I was as surprised by the news of Wright's departure as anyone, but it's really getting blown out of proportion imo.

      Thing about stories like this is that there isn't actually a story. He's obviously answering a question that was put to him and then no matter what his response, that becomes the story. 'Douglas disappointed with Wright departure', 'Douglas happy with Wright Departutre', 'Douglas visits yorkshire for grand depart.....ure' - whatever his response, it becomes a story. If he had come out off his own back and said this on his Twitter feed or something, then yes, worth bit of reporting - but this kind of almost media-generated story irritates me.

      Classy but neutral words from Mr Douglas.

      I just bought a brand new Maserati after having made $8072 this past 4 weeks and just over 10k last month. This is the best and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. I actually started this few months ago and almost immediately started to bring home minimum $81 p/h.
