Adam McKay Confirms That He'll Return For ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

We already know that Peyton Reed is returning to take the helm of Ant-Man and The Wasp, but Adam McKay (The Big Short) had now confirmed that he'll be involved with the sequel's screenplay...

Anchorman writer and director Adam McKay played a major role in rewriting Edgar Wright's screenplay for Ant-Man, and the filmmaker has now confirmed that he'll be back for Ant-Man and The Wasp. He's previously stated that he was unsure about a return, but McKay is now going to be teaming up with Paul Rudd once again (he's currently working on the screenplay with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari). 

"We’ve been talking to Marvel actually," McKay told Nerdist in a recent interview. "We just talked to them the other day, and it looks like I will be involved [in Ant-Man and the Wasp]. I don’t know if it’s gonna be right from page one. But it looks like I will definitely be involved. There you go. There’s a little headline for the fanboys!" 

This is fantastic news, and with McKay's latest movie The Big Short an Oscar favourite, managing to get the filmmaker back is a big win for Marvel. Whether or not he'll end up directing something for them remains to be seen though. Ant-Man and The Wasp is set to be released on July 6th, 2018, but we'll next see Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War
