Paul Rudd is Ant-Man:http://collider.com/paul-rudd-ant-man/

Edgar Wright is directing, and it will be out 7/31/15.

Not much else is known just yet, but the test footage was pretty neat...

Oh good, I'm glad they picked Rudd. I can't remember who the other guy it was rumored to be a month or two ago, but Rudd was the superior choice.

Yeah... and there was a time he was gonna be the first MCU character, before Iron Man.

^The concept reel for Marvels filmverse Ant-Man.


^Ant-Man cartoony coolness.

If you're unfamiliar with the character those two short vids give you all the pieces to what makes the character... except for wife-beating. That's not in them, but sadly rage issues, abuse and alcohol are parts to Ant-Man too.

Just realized the test footage was posted already. I hadn't noticed the link before.

Anyway, happy to see Rudd is Pym. I think it'll work as Rudd is goofy, but he can do an edge. Hopefully this will be as fun as the first Iron Man.

I saw him on TV a day ago totally denying it!

What's a Collider and why should I trust it more than Hollywood Reporter, Nikki Finke, or Variety?

 

And why are we pretending "early talks" is a phrase that means anything?

I didn't realize it wasn't a done thing. I too saw Rudd deny it, but with this new thread I figured there was a press release or something (yes, it's now obvious I barely paid attention to the OP).

It's "Ant-Man".  Two words, one hyphen, and the 'M' is capitalized.  COME ON YOU GUYS.

I hope this winds up like Party Down and Paul Rudd steps away so Adam Scott gets the role instead.

Yeah, near as I can tell, there's no confirmation. He's been rumored for awhile, but somebody tonight must have aid something because all the outlets are saying "he's in talks".

 

I don't know why the sudden re-scoopage tonight-- possibly somebody had a press release and leaked it early. Or, kind of like when Simon Pegg was "named" one site of merit reported it as fact and everybody followed suit.

Oooh and also I HAVE A COMPLAINT

 

Paul Rudd is 5'9 whereas Hank Pym is easily, like, less than an inch high when he shrinks and can grow at least 12 feet tall when he goes all Giant-Man so what gives Marvel who knows maybe he will have to bulk up / slim down for the role

I don't see it.  Adam Scott is funny, but so is the shape of his head.  Dr. Pym and Scott Lang, either of which could be up for grabs here, both clearly have normal-shaped heads.

I have always had crazy amounts of man-love for Paul Rudd. I've loved him even when he's in crappy films. I see what they're going for here-- Robert Downy Jr is in shape, but he didn't have a superhero physique. Chris Evans and Hemsworth, for sure... and yet Iron Man is still the hero.

 

They are going for charisma for body type-- plus it's not like Pym is known for being superbuff. Paul Rudd could easily town, but I think this casting is so in line with Downey, and it makes sense.

 

I also liked the Simon Pegg rumors. Maybe that will turn out true after all as well, with him being Scott Lang.

Funny how a DC casting announcement always seems to break the internet and fandom, but everyone is always cool with Marvel's pics.
