Ant-Man

Directs

Reed directs this action film, based on the Marvel comic book. Paul Rudd plays Scott Lang, a con-man whose super-suit gives him the ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength. Lang must must help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Co-starring Evangeline Lilly and Hayley Atwell. Co-writer Adam McKay:

Peyton is really, really wonderful, and will be proving that soon enough. As I said to the Comic-Con audience a few years ago, ‘You might not have heard of [Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors] Joe and Antony Russo, but you’re going to be big fans of them soon.’ And I’d say the same thing about Peyton Reed now.
