The Marvel Cinematic Universe was shaken to its core earlier this week when it was announced that Edgar Wright has left Ant-Man . The Shaun Of The Dead , Scott Pilgrim and The World 's End director had been working on the project for eight years, already had a cast including Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly in place, and was in pre-production to meet the July 2015 release date of what's slated to be the first Marvel outing after Avengers: Age Of Ultron .

Apparently "differences in their vision of the film" prompted the split between Wright and Marvel, leaving Ant-Man without a director, and Wright without the movie that could have launched him into the Hollywood A-league. But what do you think about the split? Do you still want to see an Ant-Man movie if Wright isn't involved? Should Marvel have done everything in their power to keep a director with a unique vision and visual style? What would you like to see Wright directing next? Let us know your thoughts and your words might just appear in issue 251 of SFX , on sale Wednesday 23 July.
