Joss Whedon has seemingly shown his support for director Edgar Wright in the wake of the recent Ant-Man shakeup.

Marvel announced yesterday (May 23) that Wright had stepped down as director of the upcoming film, citing creative differences.

A statement jointly released by Marvel and Wright read: "The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly."

Joss Whedon, who oversees the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has since shared a tweet seemingly in support of Wright.

The Avengers director posted a photo on his official Twitter account of himself holding a Cornetto ice cream cone.

The photo seems to be referencing Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, which includes Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End.

There is no word on what exactly the creative differences between Wright and Marvel were. »
