There was a lot of director-related drama behind the scenes of Marvel’s Ant-Man, and it looks like the studio is hoping to keep something like that from happening again by locking in a director for the sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp, as soon as possible. Unsurprisingly, The Hollywood Reporter says that Marvel is hoping to bring back Ant-Man director Peyton Reed, but he’s only “in negotiations” at this point. We figure Reed is a lock for this, assuming he doesn’t suddenly decide that he’s not interested in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and refuses to cram in unnecessary connections to other movies (as was supposedly Edgar Wright’s objection, leading him to drop out of the first movie). Reed learned how to be a team player from Bring It On, though, so he’ll probably cram in whatever unnecessary connections they tell him to. Maybe in the sequel Ant-Man will visit the same Burger King that Tony Stark visits in Iron Man? And maybe The Wasp could hang out at Thor’s stupid cave from Age Of Ultron? These ideas are free and great, Marvel. Feel free to steal them.
