As they did with Guardians Of The Galaxy last year, many speculated that Ant-Man would be the first Marvel Studios film to “fail” at the box office. However, the film has gone on to be a massive success for the studio, making more than the first films of some of their more popular characters. So, how does director Peyton Reed feel about the film’s success? While speaking with USA Today, Reed had the following to say on the matter.
Probably one of the most talked about scenes in the film was the fight between Scott Lang and Sam WIlson. When asked about the decision to include Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon, Reed had the following to say about why this Avenger was the right one to appear in the film.
The filmmaker then went on to say that he’s “doubly excited” for the sequel and that they are going to do some “very different things“. Could one of those things be the introduction of Giant-Man, which is a rumor floating around currently, introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? When asked about this specific aspect Reed stated that’s “the thing about Hank Pym and Scott Lang in the comics. There’s so much stuff — there’s like 50 years of source material to choose from, so we’re being smart about what we’re going to do with the movie. But there’s some very weird stuff in store for these characters.” Weird stuff? Count me in.Let us know what you think about Reed’s comments and what you hope to see in the sequel in the box below.
