Peyton Reed Was Initially Against GIANT-MAN Debut IN CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Scott Lang unveiled his "biggest" surprise in someone else's movie but director Peyton Reed says there's still plenty more to explore in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Speaking to Moviefone, Reed admitted he was a bit grieved to learn that Scott Lang would be unleashing his growing powers in Captain America: Civil War but he quickly got over it as he dove deeper into development on Lang's sequel. "Again, that is one of the sort of things where it's a mixed bag. When I first found out -- gosh, I don't know, two years ago, a year-and-a-half ago -- that "Civil War" was going to get the Giant-Man premiere, I was like "No!" But, now, I've since recovered, and we have a lot more in store for Scott Lang in this movie.
The Ant-Man and the Wasp director was initially dismayed when he found out Giant-Man would be debuting in Civil War and not his own standalone feature. However, he's got even more surprises in store.
We get to see the Wasp debut -- we're all about the Wasp and Ant-Man. So I like it, because we spend a lot of time with our different writers and directors, and there's a lot of crosstalk, and I love that."
Besides growing extremely small and large, communicating with insects and shrinking other inert objects, what other Ant-Man powers are left to explore? Could Reed and Marvel look to create some new abilities in the sequel?
We'll find out when Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives in theaters on July 6, 2018. Of course, we'll be seeing Lang sooner in Avengers: Infinty War, which hits North American movie screens two months earlier on May 4, 2018.
