Rumor: Adam McKay set to direct an upcoming Marvel movie

03.27.2015

Adam McKay

Back in October Adam McKay said he had been in talks with Marvel about helming an upcoming movie, and now Latino-Review is claiming that McKay is set to direct a film for the studio. McKay was one of several directors Marvel was considering to take over ANT-MAN after Edgar Wright left the project, and while he didn't land the gig, he did rewrite the script with star Paul Rudd.

Now the question (if the site's report is true, of course) is which movie is Adam McKay attached to direct? Well, the Marvel movies that don't have directors yet are THOR: RAGNAROK, BLACK PANTHER, CAPTAIN MARVEL, INHUMANS, and SPIDER-MAN (although the rumor is Drew Goddard will be behind the camera for the solo Spidey film), and the popular speculation is McKay will direct INHUMANS.

But at this point this is only a rumor, and even if Marvel has tapped Adam McKay for one of their new movies, it could be a film that hasn't been officially announced yet. Which planned Marvel flick do you think would be a good fit for McKay?

Adam McKay is currently filming THE BIG SHORT with Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling, and ANT-MAN will be in theaters on July 17, 2015.

Hey fanboy hypocrites, can you say The Russo Brothers? Who started in comedy also, plus McKay can shoot action like in The Other Guys & even the racing scenes in Talladega Nights were well done.

I'd like Kazar and Zabu

There is not a ton of jungle movies lately. Jurassic World i guess. What else?

Yeah Maybe Antman 2

So far the list doesn't have any comedy titles.
If you watch agents of shield, you see how dark the Inhumans story can get.
If they play Capt Marvel in a more comedic angle, guess thats the fit

Taking this with a grain of salt considering it's coming from Latino Review. Of the titles listed, I would guess either Inhumans or Captain Marvel. But even those movies I don't see being a really great fit for him. I feel like Marvel is going to take a gamble and go forward with a sequel to Ant-Man with him directing. Just a guess though.

Keep in mind that the Russos were known mostly for Arrested Development and Community before directing The Winter Soldier.

I would guess either Inhumans or Captain Marvel. Can't really see him doing something as big or action heavy as Thor or Black Panther. But again, it's Latino Review, so.....

Did you not see The Other Guys? He is more than capable of handling action, plus The Russo's did comedy also right?

Cool. Not sure which film he should direct. I am looking forward to a good Black Panther film. Not sure if McKay is the right guy for it or not. He's famous for doing comedies. Trying to think which of Marvel's Phase 3 films would have a strong humor under tone. Captain Marvel maybe?

So back in October, he was said to be in talks for an undisclosed movie...

And now LR is saying that he is set for an undisclosed movie. Why is this news? Why did LR feel the need to report something so insubstantial?

I'd say he's best suited for Spider-Man. Or maybe Captain Marvel. She has a pretty fantastic wit IIRC.
