Earlier today we heard a bit from director Peyton Reed about the possibility of returning for 2018’s Ant-Man & The Wasp and the what direction that the film might head in. The director is currently doing the rounds promoting the home video release of Ant-Man and, while speaking with MTV, commented a bit on a greater emphasis on both Hope Van Dyne & Janety Van Dyne in the first film and how the need for female heroes is a ‘no-brainer’. In the original draft of the film, Evangeline Lily’s Hope Van Dyne had a much smaller role that was greatly expanded upon after Reed took over on the film.
The director also told the site that he plans to “be loud” in order to make sure that The Wasp doesn’t get screwed over when it comes to merchandise, a complain that many have had in regard to Scarlett Johansonn’s Black Widow. Let us know your thoughts on Reed’s comments in the box below and what you’d like to see when Ant-Man & The Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
