We reported on it earlier this year, that Paul Rudd was in talks to play Ant-Man in Ant-Man, and now it’s official. Marvel Studios has announced that Rudd will play Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, in the Edgar Wright film.
That’s just in time too as Wright’s film is set to start production next week. Now, what isn’t known is if Wright’s desire to have both Hank Pym and Scott Lang, a later Ant-Man, in his film will come to fruition. More details on this are sure to be coming as filming commences.
2015 will be quite the summer of Marvel as Avengers: Age of Ultron will land May 1 and Ant-Man will debut July 31, 2015.
