Seems as though Marvel Studios has a bit of an Adam McKay infatuation. Last we heard, the director of Anchorman and co-writer of Ant Man may direct an upcoming Marvel movie. Speculation was that Inhumans was the movie Marvel wanted him for, but it turns out that McKay may have the pick of the superpowered litter.
Collider recently asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige which Marvel movie Adam McKay might be in the running for, and he gave a surprisingly broad answer…
“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.”
Now that we know McKay is in the running for literally everything Marvel-related, what project would you put him on? You don’t have to restrict yourself to currently announced movies. Personally, I’d be pretty into a McKay-directed Devil Dinosaur. Just leave Will Ferrell out of it. I don’t want to bring up and Last of the Lost flashbacks.
