UPDATE: Edgar Wright breaks silence with a silent "Selfie."

Director Edgar Wright breaks silence with a "Selfie" showing a sad Buster Keaton holding a Cornetto ice cream bar.


In 1928, legendary actor Buster Keaton had worked on 31 films independently, then he signed on with MGM and made the biggest mistake of his career, he would never again be completely free to create his independent work. He once said :

"In 1928, I made the worst mistake of my career. Against my better judgment I let Joe Schenck talk me into giving up my own studio to make pictures at booming Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lot in Culver City.”

Perhaps this sentiment is what Director Edgar Wright is trying to convey through this "Selfie." Here you see actor Buster Keaton in a very sad state holding a Cornetto ice cream bar.
 



 It's not clear what he meant with this symbolism, but a picture is worth a thousand words. If you draw parallels between his situation and Keaton's, Wright might feel like he made the biggest mistake of his career by working with Marvel. This of course is going to add more fuel to the fire when it comes to speculating what were the true reasons he left Marvel's Ant-Man since it has been rumored that Wright departed the project after Marvel betrayed his artistic integrity by ordering rewrites behind his back. 

Of course the parallels are not exactly the same, the fact that Wright was able to walk away from Ant-Man shows that he is not being slaved by an studio to produce movies he doesn't want to make.  Never mind that he has directed 3 semi-independent movies (Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim, and The World's End)  while he was working with Marvel to develop Ant-Man.

What do guys think? Could the "Selfie" be interpreted differently? Did Wright made a mistake by working with Marvel? Who do you think will replace Wright? Leave your thoughts down bellow and thank you reading.




UPDATE: Edgar Wright has deleted his "Selfie" from his twitter feed ( As you can see the tweet embeded above doesn't work anymore and the source doesn't exits either.) It is still unclear what he meant by posting the "selfie" in the first place and the fact he deleted it will raise even more questions.  Perhaps this was an efford to avoid burning bridges but unfortunetely once something is out there for eveyone to see it's pretty inpossible to undo.
