Joss Whedon (Marvel's The Avengers) posted a photo today of himself holding a Cornetto ice cream in the air and his head bowed solemnly. The pose echos that of the civil rights protest of the 1968 Olymics and is likely a reaction to the recent news that Edgar Wright (The Cornetto Trilogy) has left the production of Marvel's Ant Man after a dispute with Marvel Studios. 

Could Marvel's most powerful director be siding with Wright? Is this trouble in paradise for Marvel Studios? Sound off below.

Joss and Kevin Feige from Marvel are both on Wright's side. Stop be haters.

It's too let now.

Haven't heard from Joss in awhile.

It's a business, and is surely to tussle done feathers if in fact what happened actually happened, all speculation. I'll be honest I wasn't a fan of what Edgar wright was trying to do, especially the age problem. So I'm not going to act like marvel is unwarranted in taking an issue with it.

But my whole thing is, the only reason they would have their own staff edit the script, is if it conflicts with something now continuity wise, or will in the future. And marvel works hard to keep everything in tact, though the universe is growing really fast. This isn't easy. This is my guys as to why it happened, and Edgar most likely didn't like what he was left with.

That's why a director like joss works so well. He understand the lore and the significance of continuity and reputation of the comic book form on the big screen, which requires working around creative limitations as he did as a comic book writer, one can't write one comic book that jeopardizes stories of other comics within the universe. Same thing is happening here.

Overall I think he is saddened that wright had to leave, but also understands why marvel did what they did.

I'm sure Edgar and Joss have worked together at some point. Heck, Wright might have been the one that asked him to pull Wasp out of Avengers (or placed the idea of her being in it :P).

it's too bad the mcu extremists fans have been nasty and shitty little creatures for years, tho

I'm seriously really bummed though, Edgar was the main reason for my excitement for this movie...but the MCU is bigger than any director, I know that sucks in some respects, but my admiration for what Marvel has done creating a cinematic universe is unprecedented...gotta believe they did what they had to do for the greater good...at least I'm hoping it will work out o.k. and everything will be just fine in the long run...

He's probably the only one given creative control.

Wait what? Lol what does Marvel "extremist fans" have to do with the article? Do you need to find a way to troll EVERY marvel article?

Joss Whedon is showing support for Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man. I'm still pretty bummed about it.

He was really passionate about the character. The next director they get won't have that same passion.

I mean, if it wasn't for Edgar Wright, Marvel Studios wouldn't even have an Ant-Man movie.

Time will tell.

No one is bigger than the film. It has to fit in with the rest of the MCU.
