Out of all the upcoming Marvel films, I think Ant-Man is the flick that I’m genuinely excited for. It’s got an under-appreciated hero in the form of the amazing Ant-Man and a great director on board, the one and only Edgar Wright. What the film doesn’t have though, is a lead sctor. Expect that to be sorted soon, as the shortlist for that film has narrowed down the choices to play the future avenger to two possible leads.
According to Variety, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Paul Rudd are at the top of the list when it comes to donning the Ant-Man helmet. It’s two solid choices for the scientist-superhero-adventurer, but I’m leaning more towards Paul Rudd right now for the role.
Don’t get me wrong, I dig JGL as an actor, but Rudd brings an everyman quality to the role, which I believe that Ant-Man needs. That, and I really hate typing out the names of three-name actors. A choice between the two will most likely be made this week, so that filming can get under way in order to make the 2015 release date.
