ANT-MAN Director "Got Envious" Of 'Scott Lang' Appearing In CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

As Paul Rudd reveals whether or not he's finished filming scenes for Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed talks more about being jealous and yet protective of Scott Lang's inclusion.



When Ant-Man director Peyton Reed sat down with Entertainment Tonight during the recent press junket, the filmmaker was asked about Paul Rudd's (Scott Lang) inclusion in the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. "I had the Russo brothers, who are directing Captain America: Civil War, brought into the cutting room. So, I show them a bunch of footage from Ant-Man because they were gonna be working with Paul," he said. "I felt very protective about the character. I was like, 'No he wouldn’t say that, he would say this!' It was great. It was a great back and forth."

Peyton Reed continued, "When Paul went to shoot for a couple days on Civil War, I felt really envious. I felt like my girlfriend had left me and gone off with the other guy. But it was great, Paul called up and he was so excited [saying] 'I know I'm a superhero - we just did an entire movie together - but now I'm in this other movie, and I'm like talking to Captain America, it really is sinking in. I'm a part of the Marvel Universe!’ He was like a kid, it was amazing!"

Meanwhile, Paul Rudd has confirmed to BlackTreeTV that he's finished filming Civil War, and he also reiterated with ET his experience on the 2016 Marvel adaptation. "I went to the set of Captain America 3 and all of a sudden I’m standing next to some of the Avengers and I turned into, like a little kid!" he said. "And they’re calling me by my character name!" What do you think?






Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6, 2016.
