Reports indicate that Wright has now walked away from the project over creative differences with Marvel Studios. Wright has directed some odd comedy movies over the years including Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End.

The upside to the announcement is that despite Wright leaving the project, Marvel plans to replace him and the project will move on. A new director will be announced shortly according to Marvel and the launch date for the film hasn't been changed.
