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.
