We heard just yesterday that Paul Rudd (Anchorman, I Love You Man) was in negotiations to play Marvel's Ant-Man and now Marvel Studios has confirmed that he will indeed play the tiny hero in the movie directed by Edgar Wright, coming to cinemas in 2015. Marvel's Kevin Feige said,
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. 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.
The exact story line of the film is still under wraps but we couldn't be happier that Paul Rudd got the job.
