Wow! This is some awesome news relating to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man film that’s scheduled to release in 2015, kicking off Marvel’s Phase 3. There hasn’t been much news about this film, but I know I’ve wanted to know two things; (1) Which version of Ant-Man is being used (because multiple people have been Ant-Man) and (2) Who is being considered for the role.
Lucky for me, lucky for all of us, today we get some news about who might play Ant-Man. According to the Variety article I linked to, Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are the leading choices to portray the hero. Both will meet with Wright and the Marvel execs and then a decision is expected to be made soon.
I also find it interesting that they mention a third actor might be brought into the mix! Hopefully we will know who is portraying Ant-Man soon!
