"I don’t think anybody’s quite recovered," the actor stated of the sudden departure of the director from the Marvel Studios production.

Michael Douglas has broken his silence about the departure of Edgar Wright from Marvel’s Ant-Man project, calling it a “very disappointing situation.”

In a video that appeared on the fan website Schmoes Know, Douglas -- who is set to star in the troubled movie alongside Paul Rudd -- was asked whether he was disappointed not to have the chance to work with Wright on the movie. “I was, very disappointed,” he replied. “I’m a big fan of his movies [and] it’s a very disappointing situation.”

He went on to say that Wright’s sudden departure “happened very late in the game [and] I don’t think anybody’s quite recovered,” continuing, “My heart goes out to Edgar. He’s been involved with the project for a long time, but he’s talented enough that you’ll be hearing a whole lot from him, and I’m sure with a little vengeance.”
