Though he certainly stands on his own two legs, Ant-Man nearly took a cue from another Marvel hero in his big screen debut this summer.
Paul Rudd in ‘Ant-Man’ (Marvel/Disney) In late October, word came that Marvel and Ant-Man director Peyton Reed were in talks on a contract to make a sequel. In mid-2014, Reed took over for fan-beloved director Edgar Wright, who had been developing the project for nearly a decade, only to split up with Marvel in a highly publicized divorce. Thanks to his own history with Marvel (Reed grew up a comic book obsessive, and had some near-misses with the studio before) and a crucial rewrite by star Paul Rudd and collaborator Adam McKay, Reed was able to make the project his own. Since we know [the characters’] origins, we can go in some weird, unique and different territory.” Reed’s Ant-Man was more of a heist film that superhero epic, with Rudd’s Scott Lang using his master lock-picking skills — and the super-powered suit given to him by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) — to interrupt the terrorist plans of former Pym protégé Darren Cross (Corey Stoll).
Peyton Reed (Vianney Le Caer/Invision/AP) By Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit Marvel Studios is getting busy with its deal-making. Less than two weeks after dating a slew of movies including an Ant-Man sequel for 2018, the studio is in negotiations with Peyton Reed to return as director of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Like the Guardians, Ant-Man is considered a lesser character in the Marvel Comics canon. Marvel acted quickly and replaced Wright with hit comedy director Peyton Reed, who brought an undeniably sunshiney approach. Abby Ryder Forston, the young actress who plays Ant-Man’s daughter held a count-the-Goldfish-cracker contest, and stars Paul Rudd (as the titular shrinking superhero) and Corey Stoll (as the villain Yellowjacket) sang the ubiquitous Frozen song “Let It Go” in between takes.
You’d never know Peyton Reed was a fanboy based on a résumé that includes Bring It On, The Break-Up, and Yes Man all the way back to TV shows like The Weird Al Show, Mr. Show, and Upright Citizen’s Brigade. Reed’s chance finally arrived in June 2014, when he replaced Edgar Wright as the director of Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a master thief recruited by inventor Hank Pym (the original Ant-Man in the comics, played by Michael Douglas) to take control of a suit that can shrink humans to microscopic size.
