Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview

A couple weeks ago I got a chance to sit down with director Peyton Reed and talk about his new film Ant-Man. I’ve been a fan of Reed for a while now, from his fun 2000 comedy Bring It On (which was basically Pitch Perfect with Cheerleading) to his work within the Back to the Future franchise (he was involved in the Universal Studios ride, the animated series, and even directed the behind the scenes documentaries for the sequels). Here are some of the things I talked to Peyton Reed about:

  • His first attempt trying to direct a Marvel film in 2003 with a Fantastic Four adaptation that never happened
  • Ant-Man looks like it has the most VFX shots out of any of the Marvel films, But it does’t
  • How they made the microscopic scenes so photorealistic
  • What he believes he brought to the movie that wasn’t in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish‘s draft
  • Why other Marvel characters were added to the story (possible spoiler warning, although its shown in tv commercials and trailers)
  • How Peyton ended up doing voice work on episodes of Beavis and Butthead
  • Will he be involved in any of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary festivities
  • How Did Marty McFly influence Ant-Man

You can read about all of that and much more in my Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview, after the jump.
