Marvel Co-President Talks ANT-MAN; R Rated Marvel Movies

Collider sat down with Louis D’Esposito, who says that Edgar Wright possibly shooting Ant-Man next year could open the door to Marvel putting out 3 films a year instead of 2. Plus, could we see an R rated Marvel movie someday?



In the following video interview Louis D’Esposito discusses various Marvel related projects, including Item 47 (the short that debuted at Comic-Con), the upcoming Blu-ray release of The Avengers, and whether there are any plans for a cinema re-release of the extended cut of that movie beforehand. But most interestingly, D’Esposito talks about Ant-Man, and reveals that Edgar Wright will try to shoot next year. He also says that Marvel have discussed the possibility of releasing smaller budget, R rated movies..



14:07 Talks about Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man test footage and being on set while Wright was filming. Says Wright will “bring all of the coolest camera angles and shots mixed in with a lot of laughs.” As Wright was shooting, he was cutting it together.

15:20 Says Wright’s Ant-Man might be an opportunity where they make a third film since he’s shooting At World’s End this year: “That might be an opportunity where we do a third film, depending on his schedule when he finishes World’s End. But he’s such a competent filmmaker; the script is in great shape. The test will prove a lot of things on the visual effects front: how do we handle the shrinking, obviously, and the scale issues, because when he’s small he’s a half-inch. So we’re gonna work that out, maybe that’s when we do a third film.”

16:21 Talks about the possibility of doing smaller characters in smaller budget films that could be rated R. He says they discuss it, but to get through all the noise of all the other films that are released they have to spend a lot of money. If they’re spending that money, they’re gonna want to spend it on a tentpole film.

17:13 Talks about the need for a bench since they can only make so many Iron Man and Captain America sequels. Says they’re actively going through the books and putting together a bench.
