When we interviewed director Peyton Reed for Ant-Man, he talked about wanting to make the Marvel movie THE shrinking movie of this generation.

He name-checked a few of our favourites too, including Innerspace, The Fantastic Voyage and - of course - Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.

It seems now that Reed was planning more than just a hat-tip to Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. He was flat-out ready to have Moranis cameo in Ant-Man.

Reed explains that he "went back and obsessively watched all the shrinking movies I could think of. When it got to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, I was like ‘I really miss Rick Moranis, Man!’ And there was talk about like should we have him do some strategic cameo in the movie? But we already had a couple of strategic cameos in the movie then it felt like ‘Okay, that might be gilding the lilly.’"

That's gilding the lilly? Honestly, we would have given back the [AVENGERS CAMEO THING] in exchange for seeing Rick Moranis back on the big screen. We love that guy.

You can read our feature on where and why he's disappeared from public life right here, if you fancy.

In the meantime, we're going to imagine a world where Rick Moranis is back doing comedy movies.
