Marvel is pushing Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie forward, and it looks like Paul Rudd is actually going to end up in the role! He is currently in negotiations with the studio, which will most likely lead to a closed deal. It's not a rumor anymore people, Rudd is on his way to becoming Ant-Man.
Back in October the rumor broke that Rudd and Joseph Gordon Levitt were being considered for the role. Rudd has been dodging lots of questions about it while doing interviews for Anchorman 2. He's been doing a great job of not saying anything, but it looks like the cat is out of the bag.
Wright will direct the film from a script he wrote with Joe Cornish. I think Rudd is a great choice for the part, and I'm excited to see what Wright has in store for the fans with this film and what Rudd will do with this character.
Marvel is looking to get the film out in theaters on July 31st, 2015. With the talent involved with bringing it to life, I'm sure it's going to be great!
