This does not bode well.

Director Edgar Wright has exited Marvels' Ant-Man due to creative differences, Variety reports.

Wright has been attached to the project since its inception in 2006, and has since been busy writing and re-writing the scrip with Joe Cornish. The Scott Pilgrim vs. the World helmer even developed and debuted test footage of how he plans to adapt the shape-shifting character for the big screen at Comic-Con in 2012.

In a joint statement from Marvel and Wright, they say the split is amicable and simply "due to differences in their vision of the film."

While no new director has been announced, Marvel remains set on releasing the film in little over a year's time, on July 17, 2015.

Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly are still attached to star.
