Certain filmmakers are just always going to do their own thing. Someone like Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson or Quentin Tarantino have no interest in making someone else’s vision. They make films to convey their own vision and if someone asks them to do anything else, that’s the end of the conversation.
It seems more and more likely Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios had that kind of dispute. For several years, Wright had been working on his vision of Ant-Man but once Marvel started to actually consider it, they realized it wasn’t what they wanted. That’s probably what created the “differences in their vision of the film” cited in the original departure statement.
Now, that’s a statement bolstered by Ant-Man co-star Evangeline Lilly. The actress, who was cast by Wright, is in the film as Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne. She said that while Wright’s vision for the film was incredibly exciting, she believes it wouldn’t have fit in with the other movies Marvel has created. “It would have stuck out like a sore thumb, no matter how good it was,” she says.
