Ant-Man Director Peyton Reed Interested In Doing Ant-Man Prequel About Hank Pym

In an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed revealed that not only is he interested in doing an Ant-Man sequel, but he would be onboard for a prequel as well.

"Listen, if we were lucky enough to be able to do a sequel or even a prequel, I'd be way into it," said Reed. "I've really fallen in love with these characters. I was always in love with the characters in the comic book world but there's a lot of story to tell with Hank Pym."

What do you think? Would you rather see the ongoing adventures of Scott Lang? Or would you prefer to see a prequel telling the story of Hank Pym?

Ant-Man is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on July 17, 2015.

    Idk about Pym. Marvel's kinda already set the precedent , so what kind of stories can be told? Just build on Lang. That's the better idea imo.

  1. Just wait until you see the movie. I think a Pym sequel would be fantastic.

  2. I would prefer a show based on Hank Pym ( a la Agent Carter) either on abc or Netflix. Find someone to play a younger version of him cuz pretty sure Douglas would be to expensive to cast

  3. Full movie unseen, I'm admittedly MCU's B!+C# & can't wait to see this & if the full movie is as entertaining as the trailers have been, then sign me up for prequels, sequels...HOWEVER marketing-wise the fact that the term 'wife-beater' *DOESN'T * pertain to Pymm's choice of shirt & despite the story's brevity its as tragically iconic as the 'Demon in a Bottle' which was alluded to in IRON MAN II. I'm game but I'd want a certificate of achievement/completion of Anger Management hanging prominently as an Easter Egg or something. ^ALL THAT^ to say *NOTHING* of Pymm being left out of Ultron!

    They could do a split narrative. Like, an adventure of Young Hank Pym's comes back to bite Lang in the ass 30 years later.
