With the casting of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Sandman, it appears that Paul Rudd is now a shoe in for Ant-Man. The Wrap broke the exclusive story that Rudd is in fact in negotiations for the title role in Edgar Wright’s superhero comedy.
“Representatives for Marvel and Rudd had no comment”. Which isn’t really surprising considering they didn't announce officially Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch for Avengers: Age of Ultron until much later.
Rudd is an interesting choice as he has done dramatic work in the early part of of career, though lately it has been all comedies. Before we are quick to judge Marvel's decision, let us remember when we heard that Robert Downey Jr. was going to play Iron man.
