Kevin Feige talks Ant-man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

April 25th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Marvel President Kevin Fiege has been talking about Ant-man and his place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Empire and he explains just why he’s such a big deal…

According to Feige, Ant-man’s script has been in place since before the first Iron Man movie and the Universe so far has been built around it. Huh? He explains: “We changed, frankly some of the MCU to accommodate this version of Ant-Man. Knowing what we wanted to do with Edgar and with Ant-Man, going years and years back, helped to dictate what we did with the roster for Avengers the first time. It was a bit of both in terms of his idea for the Ant-Man story influencing the birth of the MCU in the early films leading up to Avengers.”

So, however excited we were for Ant-man, multiply it now by a gagillion because it looks like this could be another game-changer in the MCU…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
