It seems that Peyton Reed might have already joined the upcoming sequel to this year’s Ant-Man film, which is now titled “Ant-Man and the Wasp”. While there was no exact announcement given that he had joined the project besides that he was being asked to join, in a recent interview he was very open and enthusiastic when questioned about the upcoming Marvel sequel.[1]

“I think there’s probably going to be some aspects that maybe call back to the tone of [the first movie], but for Ant-Man and the Wasp, we have an entirely different template. We know what that template is, and we have an entirely different genre template for that movie. But it’s going to remain a surprise. But yes, that’s already been decided.” If one takes Reed’s words into account, it but confirms that he might have already signed on to direct the film.

He also confirmed the crew that will be involved with the writing process of the fim. “Well, definitely, Paul, and we’ve got [Andrew] Barrer and [Gabriel] Ferrari, who were not credited on the movie, but they’re our production writers, they’re coming back. And Adam’s going to come back in some capacity. A lot of it has to do with his schedule on The Big Short, because he’s promoting that movie and is probably, I would think, well into the Oscar season. We talked about Ant-Man, and he’s psyched to come back. We want him back. It’s going to be a scheduling thing.”

While no one truly expected to see Edgar Wright and Adam McKay to return for the sequel, it will be interesting to see how the show will differentiate itself from the first film with this team.
