McKay did a pass on Ant-Man to punch many of the comedic points on the film after an introduction from star Paul Rudd. McKay started his career as a comedy performer and writer with UCB, then moved on to Saturday Night Live, writing for Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell. He is also a major contributer and co-founder of Funny Or Die, having helped launch the idea of a “viral video” with the short Landlady, starring his 2 year old daughter Pearl.

Feige was specifically asked about whether McKay was in consideration for Inhumans to which he responded resoundingly that McKay is involved in their process.
