A few months ago, Adam McKay didn’t seem so sure about his involvement with Ant-Man and the Wasp, though he did say he wanted to return for Marvel’s upcoming sequel. McKay came on board the first Ant-Man a bit late in the game, helping Paul Rudd with some rewrites when director Peyton Reed replaced Edgar Wright, but it looks like The Big Short director will be on board from the get-go this time around.

While doing the rounds to promote his financial crisis film The Big Short, Adam McKay hinted that he might be back to script Ant-Man and the Wasp — as it turns out, not only is McKay reporting for scripting duties on the sequel, but he’ll be re-teaming with Paul Rudd, and the pair will have a little additional help from uncredited Ant-Man writers Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer.

As far as Marvel films go, Ant-Man wasn’t as weird as Guardians of the Galaxy, though the brief trip to the Quantum Realm gave us a taste of the potential weirdness to come. Director Peyton Reed is returning to helm Ant-Man and the Wasp, and promises that things will definitely get more strange in the sequel, while newly-released concept art from the first film shows early — and very different — designs for the Yellowjacket suit.

After Edgar Wright famously parted ways with Marvel on Ant-Man, Adam McKay was briefly in talks to direct before Peyton Reed signed on for the job. Although the timing didn’t work out, McKay still did some work on the script with Paul Rudd, and it’s been reported that Marvel is still very much interested in having him do something more substantial in the MCU. According to McKay, he might be returning fairly soon.

Just a couple of weeks ago Marvel readjusted their upcoming slate of films, shifting the release dates of Black Panther and Captain Marvel to allow for Ant-Man and the Wasp, the official sequel to this year’s Ant-Man. It seemed a bit obvious that director Peyton Reed would return (especially when he tweeted about the sequel), though Marvel hasn’t made anything official until today.

If you’re heading out to a theater to see Ant-Man this weekend (and if you’re not, you really should check out Trainwreck), you’ve probably got a few things preoccupying your MCU-loving mind — for instance, where might one spot potential Marvel Easter eggs in the studio’s latest superhero film?

Marvel is all about bigness. In the last couple years, the comic-book company turned Hollywood goliath has become become synonymous with a certain kind of blockbuster that’s so large it metastasizes beyond its own borders and crosses over into others. Marvel doesn’t make movies; they make universes. But you can paint yourself into a corner by perpetually topping yourself. At a certain point, how much bigger can you get?

We’ve got two new Ant-Man bits to share today. First is the above clip, which features Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang using his super-shrinking power for the first time — in a bathtub, of all places. The second piece of news pertains to the possibility of a sequel, which director Peyton Reed says he’s open to directing.

In case you were not aware, there’s been a little dispute over at Marvel regarding the Ant-Man writing credits. Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish originally wrote the screenplay for the pint-sized superhero film, but once Wright departed the project, Adam McKay and Paul Rudd did a little rewriting. While Marvel intended to give Wright and Cornish “story by” credit only, the pair will now get a screenwriting credit following the results of their recent dispute.

For months now, we’ve seen concept and poster art illustrating what Corey Stoll’s villainous Yellowjacket will look like in Ant-Man, but we haven’t had a chance to see the real deal via film stills or trailers. That changes today, thanks to EW’s official preview of the upcoming Marvel film, which gives us our best (and first legitimate) look at Yellowjacket yet.
