It has been speculated for a while but it appears Marvel has a keen eye on internet comment sections, as Paul Rudd is in official negotiations to star in Marvel’s Ant-Man.
Variety reported that Marvel is currently gearing up for the announcement, while some have also noted his more slender appearance in interviews for the promotion of recent release ANCHORMAN 2. He might be simply shaving a few pounds for his own comfort but where’s the fun in that? He’s got to be Hank Pym!
We are all waiting on Marvel’s word of course, but all signs seem to be pointing to him landing the coveted role. With previous runner Joseph Gordon-Levitt now gearing up to produce a version of SANDMAN and considering both Rudd and director Edgar Wright’s comedic history, it seems like the perfect fit for an unusual off-beat superhero outing.
We still have to wait until late 2015 for the movie’s official release but in the meantime let’s just dream of how brilliant it is all going to be. Rudd is Ant-Man and Wright is directing. Today is a very good day.
