Edgar Wright Comic-Con Sign

It was inevitable that someone would make a big scene at Comic-Con this year about Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man. This is our guy. Yes, this is just a fun post about a funny moment at Comic-Con and contains no news, but it's a good story and one I think fans who aren't in San Diego will appreciate anyway. Every year at Comic-Con, a small selection of religious zealots bring big yellow signs talking about the bible. This year, another big sign joined them but it was in defense of Edgar: all it stated was "Edgar Wright Was Right". Turns out he's a fan who is "depressed" about the Ant-Man news and wanted to make his feelings known.

We followed the story on Twitter from Comic-Con and you can see photos of him below along in the tweets.

After noticing what was going on, Edgar Wright himself tweeted out a very nice message about the sign guy.

I really hope someone took Edgar up on that request and bought him a beer (or two). The tweet right above indicates that he is already aware of what Edgar sent out, but still a bit depressed, of course. To recap: after developing the Ant-Man movie for Marvel Studios for many years (even showing off test footage), director Edgar Wright left the project over creative differences in late May just a few months before shooting was supposed to start. While the project didn't change release date, Marvel did find a replacement director fairly quick, hiring Peyton Reed (of Bring It On, The Break-Up, Yes Man) instead. Despite Kevin Feige defending Reed, a few fans still seem to be upset and still wish that Edgar Wright was directing it. What about you?
