The sudden and unexpected departure of Edgar Wright from Marvel’s “Ant-Man” project last month has suddenly made the film a whole lot less interesting in many people’s eyes.
One of them is Wright’s lovable and ever cheerful cohort Simon Pegg who was asked about the Sky Movies about the whole situation. He says:
“I think it’s a terrible shame. I think I get, perhaps, why it’s happened – I think maybe [Marvel Studios] want a particular thing in line with a particular other thing, but if you hire a director who has a particular vision, you’ve got to expect him or her to make a ‘such and such’ film, an Edgar Wright film.
And that’s what that script was. [It was] interesting, the character has a real journey. I can’t say too much about it, because obviously, it’s not my thing, but it’s their loss.”
Pegg hasn’t commented on rumors yet that he’s has already shot a secret role in colleague J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII” whilst it was filming in Abu Dhabi.
