Paul Rudd is OFFICIALLY Marvel's man! Their Ant-Man!!
After the news broke that Paul was going to put on the tiny tights to play the shrinking superhero, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige proudly made it official. He said:
"When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star."
You got that right! Finding Robert Downey, Jr. definitely turned Iron Man to gold! Have they made the perfect choice again? Feige thinks so! He said:
"We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we'd ever met with about doing the work, we knew we'd found the right guy. We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."
We couldn't be more excited either! Unless Paul was playing Aunt-Man in a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire… LOLz!
