Kevin Feige Confirms Marvel's Interest In Director Adam McKay


Kevin Feige confirms that Marvel is very interested in working again with director/screenwriter Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers).

Last month, Da7e from Latino Review reported that Adam McKay, who was considered to direct Ant-Man after Edgar Wright left and ended up rewriting the script, is "on-deck to direct a Marvel movie." Marvel President Kevin Feige has now confirmed in a recent interview that their is interest in McKay for a future Marvel project.

“Adam McKay is in the running for everything," Feige told Collider. "Adam McKay is a great, great writer and director. He did an amazing pass on the Ant-Man draft with Paul Rudd for us, and I didn’t know him before then. And we got to know him through that and liked him very much, and have met with him a number of times trying to find something else, so we’ve talked about a lot of characters with him."

Currently, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Inhumans don't have directors attached, so McKay could be up for any of the three. Though, speculation has matched up McKay with Inhumans.


When Collider mentioned to Feige the rumored Inhumans logline: "About a group of people that are given powers only to discover they might be part of an alien race." Feige replied, "Well I’d say that’s relatively fair, but that’s not official. I’ve never seen that as an official logline."

Black Panther is scheduled to arrive in theaters July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel will be released November 2, 2018 and Inhumans will open July 12, 2019.
