Marvel's Kevin Feige says Adam McKay "is in the running for everything"
Last month a rumor surfaced that ANT-MAN co-writer and THE OTHER GUYS director Adam McKay was set to helm a Marvel movie, but according to Kevin Feige, that's not the case. Why? Because apparently McKay could potentially direct any future film for the studio.
Feige recently sat down with Collider, and he was asked if McKay was in the running to direct INHUMANS, which has been the popular guess since it is one of the Phase 3 films that doesn't have a director yet, with the other two being CAPTAIN MARVEL and BLACK PANTHER.
Adam McKay is in the running for everything. 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.
Collider also asked Kevin Feige about 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 response?
Well I’d say that’s relatively fair, but that’s not official. I’ve never seen that as an official logline.
I know most believe Adam McKay will definitely be behind the camera for INHUMANS, but personally, I think he'd do a hell of a job with a Spidey movie. Do you want McKay to direct INHUMANS, or a different upcoming Marvel film?
ANT-MAN will be in theaters on July 17, 2015, and INHUMANS is scheduled to open on July 12, 2019.
