The Wrap Up: Marvel Defends Peyton Reed as the ‘Ant-Man’ Director

Marvel

ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, Marvel explains why director Peyton Reed is the best guy to helm ‘Ant-Man,’ Disney’s ‘Jungle Book’ movie finds its Mowgli, and read a description of the first ‘Avengers 2′ footage.

FEATURED: Said Marvel honcho Kevin Feige on why ‘Ant-Man’ is in good hands:

He’s come in to meet on a lot of our movies over the years, in particular ‘Guardians [of the Galaxy].’ He had a lot of awesome things to say on Guardians. But James [Gunn] had a slightly more solid take that was of interest to us. But Peyton was always on our lists, and so when this happened and Edgar [Wright] said ‘Not for me’ we met with a handful of people, but Peyton was always one that I thought would be great.

Read his full statements over at IGN.
