ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Director Peyton Reed Talks About Spinning Out Of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed talks about how Captain America: Civil War served as the perfect movie to spin out of, providing him with just the right material to help set up his film...

Even though Ant-Man and the Wasp was released after Avengers: Infinity War, it serves as a direct sequel to Captain America: Civil War, picking up where we left off with Scott Lang when he journeyed to Germany and fought alongside Team Cap as Giant-Man. 

According to director Peyton Reed, Scott's actions in the Captain America threequel served as a very organic jumping-off point for his film. When he viewed an early screening of Civil War and spoke with the Russo brothers and screenwriters Markus and McFeely, Reed was very impressed that they had planned Scott's involvement into the movie in a way that had properly taken into consideration the Ant-Man sequel:

It was like, ‘Wow, this is amazing! Scott Lang went off, took the suit, fought with the Avengers, exposed the technology to Tony Stark, got put in prison, and the suit was confiscated!’ It gave us such fertile ground in terms of where to start our movie.

According to Reed, following Civil War was a much easier and more natural process than if they did not have that previous build-up. After being sprung from The Raft by Steve Rogers, Scott decided to cooperate with the government and remain under house arrest so that he could spend time with his family. Scott's actions naturally put him at odds with Hope and Hank Pym, and since they did not sign the Sokovia Accords, they are wanted fugitives on the run from the law. 

And it made sense that Scott’s going to be on house arrest, and Hank and Hope are going to be pissed at Scott Lang, and also pissed off because the enforcers of the Sokovia Accord are now onto them. So it gave us a really organic jumping-off point. I don’t know that we would’ve come to it as quickly and clearly if Scott had not been in Civil War.
