Ant-Man is just as much a heist movie as it is a superhero movie. Peyton Reed‘s Marvel origin story didn’t feel like most comic book movies because of its crime caper tropes. The sequel, however, will not return to the heist genre.

This year audiences embraced a hero named Ant-Man. I imagine some folks at Marvel were worried if moviegoers would accept a miniature crime fighter with such a refreshingly uncool name — and the bizarre power of commanding ants — but the film was a critical and commercial hit, especially overseas. After the success of the movie, director Peyton Reed can take even more chances with the Ant-Man sequel, and he plans on doing just that.
After the jump, learn what Reed has in store for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Marvel Studios had some trouble hanging on to an Ant-Man director the first time around, as you probably recall, but it’s having no such issues now. Peyton Reed, who took over the first Ant-Man when Edgar Wright departed, is reportedly in talks to return for the recently announced sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Just last week, Marvel Studios officially announced a sequel to this past summer’s Phase Two title Ant-Man. The follow-up will be called Ant-Man and The Wasp, following up the Ant-Man credits teaser revealing Hope Van Dyne (daughter of Hank Pym, played by Evangeline Lilly) would get her own superhero suit to join Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) on his Ant-Man adventures.
But if for some reason you weren’t satisfied with the more isolated, low-key superhero flick, you might find some playful jabs at the movie from the folks at How It Should Have Ended to be right up your alley. They point out some amusing details and shortcomings that the film kind of glosses over, but if you get lost in the film and ignore those elements, then it’s all good, right? Read More »

Though it’s not perfect, the recent release of Ant-Man from Marvel Studios is a refreshing comic book adventure with a different tone, style and a contained story, bringing us one of the more intimate movies from the comic book studio.
One of the reasons it works so well, besides having solid lead Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Pena to steal every scene he’s in, is Michael Douglas. The veteran actor lends some credibility to the movie and brings some authenticity to the role of Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. However, fans might be disappointed to hear that as of now there’s no guarantee that we’ll see Michael Douglas in Ant-Man 2.
