There have been a lot of rumors circulating on who will be Ant-Man in Edgar Wright’s up coming adaptation of the Marvel character. This week the rumors are saying that both Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are up for the lead. The crazy thing about this role is that it is more than just one film. It is a spot on the Avengers role call as well. To consider one picture is enough, but to step into a whole franchise with spin off opportunities is another.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt addressed the rumors this week with the Huffington Post.
"There is always a lot of rumors around these projects and so far it is still only discussions. I am always very transparent when it comes to my role and my career.'m Usually the first to speak and communicate with my fans if something happens. If you hear nothing from me, they are just rumors. "
Gordon-Levitt would be my choice over Paul Rudd. We know that he can do serious films, action movies and comedic roles. However, do any of us really think that Simon Pegg isn’t going to be Ant-Man? Sound off Maniacs!
