    Marvel’s Ant-Man finally hit theaters this past weekend, but it turns out they weren’t the first looking to translate the character to the big screen.

    Ant-Man star Paul Rudd was a guest on this morning’s episode of Stern’s radio show. Stern revealed that he was once in talks with Marvel to buy the film rights to the character from Marvel.

    "I was a huge Ant-Man [fan]," Howard told Rudd (via HitFix). "In fact, I was telling Robin [Quivers] earlier in the morning, about 15 years ago I had a meeting with Marvel. I tried to buy the rights to Ant-Man because I said that's a cool franchise. I really tried, and I met with some of their dudes."

    A version of Ant-Man with Stern producing (or maybe starring?) certainly would have been interesting to see.

    Stern was also rumored to be in consideration to play the Scarecrow in Joel Schumacher’s third Batman movie, before the entire film was scrapped.

    I think they meant to say Fart Man, not Ant Man.

    I almost shit myself when he talked about it in the first hour. Than straight up lied when speech retard asked him about his mansion and the money he's being sued for. Two huge lies right back from vacation.

    Maybe it's true he tried to buy it, but that doesn't mean he would have made it. He did buy some scripts (allegedly)
    • Porky's
    • Rock n Roll High School
    • The Sam Kinnison Story
    Not to mention Fartman

    Funny, a google search of Marksfriggin.com brings up only 5 mentions of Ant Man in all of Howard's career and not one mention of him doing the movie.

    Buchwald should tell him not to lie about internet searchable items.

    I believed him back then when he said he bought these things to produce, but now I just figured he was talking bullshit to get people interested in a project of his so they would invest.

    Even if this were true (and I don't believe it is) it only helps cement the fact that Howard is the King of All Underachievers. He never follows through on most of his proposed projects. In short, he's a lazy, cheap fuck.
