Ant-Man Director Peyton Reed on Lending Ant-Man to Civil War: I Felt Really Possessive

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell On the red carpet premiere for Captain America: Civil War, director Peyton Reed pronounced his love for the Russo brothers' Captain America: Civil War, claiming it as his third time seeing it (though, what else was he going to say?)

When he was posited the question of how he felt lending Paul Rudd's Ant-Man to the film, the director described feeling jilted by the experience.

"I felt really possessive," Reed said with a smile. "When the Russo's, when they were all writing the movie, they came to the cutting room and I showed them some stuff from the movie and showed them, you know, Paul playing Scott Lang as Ant-Man, and then when they went off and Paul went off with those guys I felt jilted.

"But now I'm over it. I had some time and I really processed my feelings and got passed it... Ant-Man for me, obviously, but I think for everybody, a highlight of the movie."

When asked if there was anything regarding Ant-Man and the Wasp, the highly anticipated sequel to last year's surprise superhero hit, Reed held back a bit.

"I can tel you that we're hard at work writing the movie right now, so we've been working, we've been holed up in a room. Paul Rudd, myself, Adam McKay... we're all brainstorming this story...

"The only thing I can tell you with certainty at this point because we're still about two years away from the movie coming out, is that it's going to have stuff in it that you've never, ever seen in a movie before."

That's a bold statement, but it holds some water given the miniature world the first film managed to feature. Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives July 6, 2018. Civil War, meanwhile, kicks off April 27.
