How Director Peyton Reed Saved “Ant-Man”

Monkeys Fighting Robots caught up with actors Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian of Ant-Man to talk about the new Marvel film and how director Peyton Reed put it all together.

Dastmalchian and Peña play Kurt and Luis, two members of Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) crew who help out their buddy after he becomes Ant-Man.

Much to Reed’s chagrin, we do find out who was the biggest nerd on set. Paul Rudd lost out because he still uses a Super Nintendo.


About Ant-Man:
Scott Lang must leave his criminal past behind if he hopes to take down Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) and the unbridled power of the Yellowjacket suit! With the help of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and the Ant-Man suit, Lang must embrace his inner hero to pull off a heist that could save the world. See why heroes don’t get any bigger than Ant-Man in the video above.

Marvel’s Ant-Man will be in theaters on July 17, 2015.
