It seems as if people are lining up behind Edgar Wright in support of the actor's departure from Ant-Man.

Reportedly, Marvel is having a difficult time finding a replacement to direct Ant-Man as it's been said multiple contenders have decided not to take on the project.

And both Michael Douglas and Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin recently expressed their disappointment.

Now the directors of 22 Jump Street, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and friends to Edgar Wright, state don't even bother making Ant-Man anymore.

When asked if they would like to direct Ant-Man, Phil Lord said Edgar Wright should do it.

"A logical choice would be Edgar Wright to finish an Edgar Wright film,” Lord laughed. 

“It seems like a tough person’s shoes to step into, you know what I mean?” Miller added. “It’s tough to have that as the specter hanging over, what would have been, and what could have been. It seems kind of tough.”

“I mean, Joe Cornish, that would make a lot of sense. Or if they, like, decided to abandon ship and try again years from now it would make more sense," Lord said.

"We're fans and buddies of Edgar's, you know," Miller stated.

"It would be like Spielbierg making the AI," Lord continued. "I don't know what to do with it. I feel strange."
