It’s been no secret that Marvel was hunting for its “Ant-Man” and rumours were coming thick and fast that Paul Rudd was the number 1 choice. Rudd was recently on the promotional tour for Anchorman 2 and denied his involvement many many times but it has now been confirmed by Marvel themselves that Paul Rudd will be playing ANT-MAN.
“When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star,” said Marvel head Kevin Feige. “We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we’d ever met with about doing the work, we knew we’d found the right guy. We couldn’t be more excited for our audiences to see what he’s going to do to bring Ant-Man to life.“
