After fighting through several rounds of Marvel casting, Paul Rudd has finally made it to the top of the mountain. Wait, better make that top of the anthill!
The This Is 40 star has been cast as Ant-Man!
According to reliable sources, Paul is in final negotiations to star in Marvel's next potential superhero franchise under Shaun Of The Dead director Edgar Wright.
If you've noticed Paul looking especially good lately, it's because he's reportedly in intense training for the physically demanding role!
Paul will be playing Hank Pym, a scientist who invents size-altering particles and uses them to fight crime as Ant-Man!
And yes, in the comics, Ant-Man IS a founding member of The Avengers! Only he uses a reverse version of his formula and becomes Giant Man instead!
Attack of the 50 ft Paul Rudd? Sounds good to us!
