Director Peyton Reed talks ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

The “our movie” Reed was referring to is Ant-Man and the Wasp, the forthcoming sequel to last night’s Saturn Award winner. Reed is back in the director’s chair and I asked him about dealing with Scott Lang being a Raft prison escapee and global fugitive at the end of Civil War.

I think that’s one of the fun things and challenges about the Marvel movies for us, for the directors and for the writers, is you do have to sort of consider what happened in the previous movies in terms of your jumping-off point for those characters. It’s something we talked a lot about early on and we definitely have stuff figured out, so there will be some big leaps forward.”
