Peyton Reed admits he was worried about how much of his own stamp he could put on Ant-Man after joining the project so late into pre-production.

Ant-Man is set to be one of the biggest summer movies and is the first time that we have seen Reed helm a Marvel film. However, Reed took over the director's chair from Edgar Wright - who left the project due to creative differences.

And Reed admits that he did have his worries when he joined the film but has praised who much he was supported on the project.

Speaking to Screen Rant, the director said: "One of my biggest concerns coming in on such short notice was, 'How much am I gonna be able to sort of put myself in the movie?' and I've been really pleased with the process, I've never felt as supported on a movie. It's amazing.

"And the system is amazing because you can float an idea on a Monday and by that afternoon sit with the storyboard artist and sketch it out, and then all talk about it and revise it. It's insane to me how quickly that can happen, that you can try something to see if the concept works; you can try an idea to see if it works in two dimensions and even three dimensions, and there's a real liberty to that."

Reed has brought us movies such as Bring It On and The Break-Up during his career and Ant-Man is his first movie since Yes Man back in 2008 - in recent years he has been working in television.

Paul Rudd takes on the central role of Scott Lang in the film, and is joined on the cast list by Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, and Michael Pena.

Ant-Man is set to bring Marvel's Phase 2 of movies to a close and we already know that we will be seeing Rudd back as Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War next year.

Ant-Man is released 17th July.
