It seems like Edgar Wright is still furious with Marvel.
According to The Independent, the Baby Driver director hasn’t seen Ant-Man and won’t even watch a trailer.
Wright, while in an interview with Uproxxx, stated, “I haven’t seen it and I haven’t even seen the trailer. It would kind of like be asking me, ‘Do you want to watch your ex-girlfriend have sex?’ Like, ‘No, I’m good.’ The closest I came to it was that somebody sitting near me on a flight was watching it.”
However, the director did almost see some of the movie accidentally on a flight once, when someone sitting near him put the movie on, but Wright chose to ignore it.
For the unversed, in 2006 Wright was officially hired to work on Ant Man, but the project spent numerous years in limbo as Marvel concentrated on pushing out their main Avengers films.
In 2013, the film started its official pre-production, but in 2014, Wright and Marvel announced he was leaving the project due to “differences in their vision of the film”.
Still, while Wright has no intention of seeing Ant-Man, he says there are no hard feelings between him and the people who made the movie.
He said, “I’ll never be pressed into kind of bad-mouthing it, because the truth of the matter is my friends are in it. Paul Rudd is a friend of mine and we’re still very good friends.”
It should be noted that, Edgar Wright’s new flick Baby Driver, which stars Jamie Foxx, Ansel Elgort, Lily James and Kevin Spacey, has opened to rave reviews from the critics as well as audiences.
