    Following yesterday's report, Marvel Studios has now officially confirmed that Paul Rudd will star in director Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. Here's the press release:
    Marvel Studios confirmed today that renowned actor Paul Rudd has been cast to star as the title character in Marvel’s Ant-Man. The feature film is being directed by Edgar Wright. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will produce the film with Nira Park.
    The casting of Rudd represents the actor that Marvel had long ago identified as its first choice to play Ant-Man, continuing the studio’s desire to cast actors that bring several dimensions to its onscreen heroes. The film’s plot is being kept under wraps.

    What the wild fuck is an ant man? I thought it was the blue dude at first but I was thinking of The Tick! Marvel is reallllly scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point it seems..

    They need to stop all this non sense and just start producing a decent, R rated, Deadpool movie withOUT Ryan Reynolds. That will never happen though. Sigh.

    Newsflash to the idiots that are flushing their money down the shitter backing this DOA........

    I thought the premise was stupid as a kid and wouldn't touch the comic on the stand.......Wouldn't take the trouble to unwrap it if it was hand delivered to me as a screener.....

    If it's about Utron then it has to be Pym. Unless they fuck it up (which they usually do.)

    Marvel have thousands of these stupid characters. I reckon they must have them ranked in order 1 to 1000 and will keep pumping them out of the cookie-cutter until people finally just go 'enough!'

    They have been trying to make it for years. There were lots of reports that they ere trying to get Simon Pegg to do it. With Avengers 2 being about Ultron they are going to need him. He is the one that created Ultron. I figured they were either going to try and shoehorn an Ant Man movie in before Avengers 2 or change the story to make Ultron a Stark invention. But then the comic book geeks would be all up in arms so I guess they decided to make the movie.

    sounds good, Ant man can change in size, if they have good special effects it should be good.
