Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd Wrap Up Shooting In NYC

According to TheWrap, Paul Rudd has been cast to play Ant-Man in Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” Are you as shocked as I am??

Back in October, Paul and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were at the top of the list for the role. Apparently the 44-year-old actor beat out his younger competition! (It didn’t help that Joseph signed on to play “Sandman” in a new Warner Bros. film.)

So far his reps haven’t confirmed the news, but according to multiple sources – it’s happening.

Apparently ‘Ant-Man’ is due in theaters on July 31, 2015, so all we’re waiting for is that big ol’ confirmation from Paul!

I think Paul Rudd could be good as an action hero, like Robert Downey Jr. was for ‘Iron Man.’ I thought they were crazy when they first cast RDJ as ‘Iron Man’ but he ended up being the perfect choice!

I’ll say this: I wouldn’t have cared at all about Ant-Man (really, Ant-Man?) but now I can’t wait for it to come out. I adore him.

Looks like Levitt is only producing the Sandman movie, not starring in it… I do like him but was really upset as he’s not Sandman material at all. Tom Hiddleston is more like it. I love me some Rudd and Ant-Man is low on the Marvel totem pole for interesting characters so I think he will make the character more interesting if there’s a slight comedy aspect to it.
