Paul Rudd thought of the idea for “Ant-Man 2”: Marvel chief Kevin Feige

Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, talked about the new Paul Rudd movie Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantum Mania.

The studio head told The Digital Spy that Ant-star Man’s had the idea to learn more about the character “We first saw it in the first Ant-Man movie, and I was reminded recently that Paul had this idea before we started filming the first Ant-Man movie. He thought it would be interesting to explore quantum mechanics.

“At the quantum level, things act in a very different way, and Paul was talking about how much you could make up stories, use your imagination, and have fun there.”

The 49-year-old further explained, “The first Ant-Man movie was mainly about meeting the characters and the origin story, of course, but at the very end of that, we got a taste of it, and that is what led to where we took it in [Avengers] Endgame.

“It is a place that is on the subatomic level where space and time act differently, and that allowed us to time-travel at Scott Lang’s suggestion in Endgame, and it allowed us to have this entire manic quantumness in this film, where we go to a point where only Janet [van Dyne, played by Michelle Pfeiffer] had ever seen before.”
