Marvel was smart enough to bring director Peyton Reed back for the sequel to Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Reed was in an awkward spot, taking over the first Ant-Man after all the negative buzz following Edgar Wright‘s departure, but he came in and knocked the Marvel film out of the park. A lot of people deserve credit for how well Ant-Man turned out, including Adam McKay, who collaborated on the script with actor Paul Rudd. McKay brought a lot of ideas to the table that really paid off.
As for whether he’ll return for the sequel, McKay sounds open to it. Read what he had to say after the jump.

But it is surprising when that somebody is director Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys, Time Bandits).
Gilliam discusses Ant-Man after the jump.
