Edgar Wright's walking away from Marvel's Ant-Man film has been the talk of the internet. Everyone has an opinion about it, including the directors of 22 Jump Street and George R.R. Martin. However, up until now we still hadn't heard anything directly from someone involved in the film.

Michael Douglas, who is still set to play Hank Pym, has broken that silence. While on the press junket for And So It Goes, Schmoes Knows snuck in a question about the Ant-Man situation. Here's what Douglas had to say:

I was… I was very disappointed. I am a big fan of his movies. It's a very disappointing situation. Happened very late in the game. I don't think anybody's quite recovered. 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.

It's nice to hear Douglas express what sounds like genuine respect for Wright and his work. We'll all have to wait and see what Wright's "vengeance" looks likes.

Ant-Man is still schedule for release on July 17, 2015.
