When a Marvel Studios movie is set to hit theaters, we often times get the opportunity to sit down in a room with the man responsible for it all and ask him anything we want about that film and the future of the company. With Ant-Man and The Wasp, it was strangely different than past conversations with Kevin Feige, as the whole Marvel Universe is in flux following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and this Ant-Man sequel is one of the most standalone stories Marvel has created to date. There is a reason Marvel isn’t having a presentation at Comic-Con this year – there isn’t much to reveal at this time as it all hinges on the next couple films.

Our conversation began with us talking about Taika Waititi‘s production office decor of E.T., and continued on through Star Wars rumors, the Quantum Realm, de-aging technology and the idea of using it for prequels, how Marvel planned Ant-Man and the Wasp alongside Infinity War, the possibility of Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: Far From Home, how they plan on marketing the Spider-Man sequel before the release of Avengers 4, how involved with Feige be with the Disney Streaming service, designing sets with theme park adaptations in mind, playing with audiences expectations, and how they shot that after credits scene.

Taika Waititi Funko POP Figure

Just yesterday, Aquaman and The Conjuring director James Wan was added to the small but growing line-up of filmmakers who have been lucky enough to be immortalized as Funko POP! vinyl figures. The figure had James Wan’s signature pink streaked hair, but now he’s no longer the coolest Funko POP on the block.

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, who has also brought us the phenomenal films Eagle vs Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is the latest to get his own Funko POP! as an exclusive at San Diego Comic-Con. And as you can see, he’s dress in his signature, godlike pineapple short and shirt set. Read More »

Instead of using his newfound clout to take a starring role in another prestige picture, an action vehicle, or a superhero movie, his next gig will see him play a supporting role in a twisted comedy from the mind of Taika Waititi, the director of films like Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
