Paul Rudd is Ant-Man and there’s the first shot of Paul Rudd being Ant-Man.
If you’re like me, you probably had no idea they were making an Ant-Man movie. Also if you’re like me, you are totally not surprised because Marvel will make anything into a movie these days.
There was something that looked vaguely like Captain America in my mashed potatoes the other day. Next day, there was Marvel on my doorstep with an offer to make my mashed potatoes into a movie.
I turned them down.
My mashed potatoes are not quite ready for the big screen.
I did, however, implore them to reboot Howard the Duck.
And don’t you worry. They will.
So anyway, Rudd plays con man Scott Lang in the movie. Scott Lang is also Ant-Man and he can shrink himself and increase his strength at the same time. Like an ant!
The movie is scheduled to be released in July of 2015.
