Kevin Feige Teases The Future of ANT-MAN, and Paul Rudd Talks About GHOSTBUSTERS 3
In a recent in-depth profile of Paul Rudd, the New York Times asked Rudd a few questions on the most talked-about upcoming projects he’s got going on. He mostly is sworn to secrecy on the two major projects, but was able to make light of the fact that he has to keep his mouth shut, so that’s fun.
When asked about whether he was gearing up for another round of playing Scott Lang in a third Ant-Man film, the actor said he couldn’t say, and asked the reporter not to even mention that he was eating bacon with his breakfast, because that could get people talking. The outlet then mentioned that they did reach out to Marvel for comment, and Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige himself, said:
“The chess pieces were arranged very purposefully after Endgame. Those that are off the board are off, and those that are still on, you never know.”
Well, Ant-Man is on the board, and while we know he is slated to return for the 2021 Disney+ animated series, What If…?, we also know that Marvel likes to give fans what they want, and fans want another Ant-Man. Scott Lang was the catalyst that got the whole reversal of the snap moving, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for the superhero.
Next up, Rudd was asked about his confirmed role in director Jason Reitman’s upcoming Ghostbusters. Here’s what he had to say about the part, and the nostalgia he feels for the original film:
“I grew up watching that movie, and this happened to be one where it completely works on its own. You don’t want to do it just because it’s part of a larger thing, but there is the added bonus of being part of something that has a real place in culture.”
That sounds fun and hopeful. But then when he was asked if he’d be strapping on a proton pack for the film, Rudd responded by saying:
“It remains to be seen what I strap on. I’m not giving you anything.”
Perfection. I love Paul Rudd. He is my favorite. And I can’t wait to see him in everything he’s got coming up. What would you like to see out of an Ant-Man 3?
