Paul Rudd Lands 'Ant-Man' Role for Marvel Film (Report)

Paul Rudd is reportedly in early negotiations to join the upcoming Marvel comic book film Ant-Man in the title role, according to Variety.

The 44-year-old actor has long been considered a front runner for the role. Edgar Wright (The World’s End) will be directing and he also co-wrote the script.

The story follows “Henry Pym, a brilliant scientist who invented a substance that allowed him to change his size and communicate with insects.”

Paul recently chatted with Total Film about the rumors and said, “There’s nothing that I know about… those are all those rumors. I saw them when you saw them, so it was certainly exciting to be included in a rumor.” Watch the video below!
