How Did Thomas End Up in Ant-Man?

Since the release of Ant-Man, the biggest question on everyone’s minds has surely been “How does Thomas the Tank Engine end up in a Marvel movie?!”

Well, now we have our answer.

Talking to Film School Rejects, director Peyton Reed has confirmed that the kids’ favourite’s inclusion was an idea born in the original script by Edgar Wright.

“I believe in Edgar and Joe Cornish’s original drafts it was a train set. At some point in the process that predated my involvement it became Thomas. As I came on, they had not secured the rights to Thomas. We had to do this whole thing where we did this presentation for the people who own the rights to Thomas.

“Thank God they agreed and found it funny, but there were definite stipulations. For example, nobody could be tied to the tracks and run over by Thomas. Thomas couldn’t be doing anything that could be perceived by children as evil. Thomas had to stay neutral in the battle, which was always our intention. Like anybody, they’re protective of their brand.”

I guess that rules out seeing Thomas team up with the Avengers for Civil War then…
