Did you get the chance to see Ant-Man and the Wasp over the weekend? I really hope you have. Director Peyton Reed did such a great job with Ant-Man and the Wasp, I was happy to get the chance to interview again.

Here is what Director Peyton Reed had to say…

Peyton Reed interview

  • He once played Drums in a Morrissey/Smiths cover band called “Louder Than Bombs”.

  • The foundation for Cassie one day being a super hero is part of this movie. “…I think that everybody aware, is aware like from the first Antman and now in the Antman and The Wasp, who Cassie Lange is in the comics and that she does become a hero. And so I think we wanted to definitely start laying some groundwork for that possibility.”
  • One of the things he loves most about this film is the “the evolution of the Scott/Cassie relationship”.

  • When asked about the imagery in the Phantom realm, he thinks “there was a concerted effort in the first Ant Man and in Dr. Strange to kind of start embracing that psychedelic aspect of the Marvel Comics, which is always part of the Marvel Comics since the ’60s…”

  • We tried to see what was next for upcoming Marvel films and while we didn’t get any of that info, he explained why…”…. It’s so rare now to see a movie that you know nothing about. It’s kind of a lost art. But even as a kid, like I had a love/hate relationship…”

About the 1st post credit scene

“…it was not completely planned in the beginning. We knew we were gonna have to deal with that thing at some point in some way. Actually, we weren’t sure at the beginning. We knew that our movie was gonna take place, sort of not only a sequel to Ant Man but also to Civil War because we couldn’t ignore what Scott Lange did in that movie. We weren’t always sure how we were gonna fit into the larger timeline with regards to Infinity War. Somewhere during the process this idea occurred to us of like Oh, well we could do something like that. It seemed to work for us tonally and sort of allows us to do our very stand alone movie but then have it fit into the larger Marvel happenings.”

While in LA, we were also able to interview Michael Douglas (“Dr. Hank Pym”), Hannah John-Kamen (“Ghost”), Paul Rudd (“Scott Lang / Ant-Man”), Laurence Fishburne (“Dr. Bill Foster”) and Evangeline Lilly (“Hope van Dyne / The Wasp”).
