While Warner Bros.' DC films plan on going relatively jokeless, Marvel is looking to import some more humor into its slate.
The studio worked with Edgar Wright for years on Ant-Man before he left the project and then hired Anchorman's Adam McKay to rewrite the project for new director Peyton Reed. But now, in a wide-ranging interview with Crave Online, McKay reveals his relationship with the studio may not end there.
While listing his projects, the filmmaker said, "I’m starting to get into the early stages with Marvel." He went on, but the subject came back around to Marvel. "I just did a big rewrite on Ant-Man with Paul Rudd and had such a great time working with them that we’re kicking around ideas. But yeah, maybe I would take on one of the characters so we haven’t locked in anything, but discussions are definitely going on."
Ant-Man crawls into theaters on July 17.
