Peyton Reed Comments On ‘Ant-Man & The Wasp’ Having An ‘Entirely Different Genre’ Template & Adam McKay Returning

Marvel’s Ant-Man officially hit shelves today and recently director did the rounds promoting the film. While speaking with Comic Book Resources, the director was asked about the upcoming 2018 sequel Ant-Man & The Wasp and if the film would be another heist film or if it would feature another genre template as Marvel films often do.

think there’s probably going to be some aspects that maybe call back to the tone of [the first movie], but for Ant-Man and the Wasp, we have an entirely different template. We know what that template is, and we have an entirely different genre template for that movie. But it’s going to remain a surprise. But yes, that’s already been decided

Recently Adam McKay, who worked on the first film’s script alongside star Paul Rudd, expressed an interest in returning to work on the sequel. Will he be back? Reed seems positive that they’ll have him back in some capacity.

Well, definitely, Paul [Rudd], and we’ve got [Andrew] Barrer and [Gabriel] Ferrari, who were not credited on the movie, but they’re our production writers, they’re coming back,” he explained. “And Adam’s going to come back in some capacity. A lot of it has to do with his schedule on [his new movie] The Big Short because he’s promoting that movie and is probably, I would think, well into the Oscar season. […]We talked about Ant-Man, and he’s psyched to come back. We want him back. It’s going to be a scheduling thing.

Here’s hoping that McKay does indeed return for the sequel. Let us know your thoughts on Reed’s comments and if you’re interested in seeing Adam McKay returning to help out with the film’s script in the section below.
