Marvel Wants Peyton Reed Back For “Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Marvel Studios is in negotiations with Peyton Reed to return as director of Ant-Man and the Wasp, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Reed pulled together a film that seemed lost after Edgar Wright left the project. His film was the little engine that could at the box office with a modest $57 million opening weekend but impressed with a $454 million worldwide box office take.

Ant-Man starred Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Bobby Cannavale, and Judy Greer.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for a July 6, 2018, release.
