July 31, 2015 may seem like a long way away (we know…we know….it actually is) but ANY news from the Marvel camp about it’s Phase Three lineup helps alleviate that pain. And we just learned some more…..
After all the rumors and speculation we’ve heard about Edgar Wright and Marvel going back and forth between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd, it looks like the verdict is in and Paul Rudd gets the nod for Ant-Man. Sounds good to us! We love both actors and felt like they really couldn’t go wrong. Even though reps for Marvel and Rudd have had no comment, multiple sources have told the following to The Wrap:
After months of speculation, Paul Rudd has landed the lead in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and is now in negotiations to play Hank Pym………..In recent interviews to promote “Anchorman 2″ as well as his recent stint hosting “Saturday Night Live,” Rudd has appeared noticeably slimmer………..that’s because he’s training for the physical role of Ant-Man.
