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!
