Pegg Teases Ant-Man Role

From Twitter

Simon Pegg has Tweeted a picture of himself pointing to Ant-Man on a poster. The speculation has begun that Simon Pegg (The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek) is indicating that he will play the title role in Edgar Wright’s adaptation of the Marvel character. A highly likely assumption as Pegg has been Wright’s go to guy on several films.

After this picture surface Pegg Tweeted: 
“FFS the Internet, all I did was point at the central character in my dear friend's next movie, because I'm excited for him. #iamantman
 
Then he Tweeted: 
“I am however going to play Antnan, a film about the adventures of a tiny grandmother. #iamantnan
 
What do you think Maniacs of Pegg in the title role? 
 
Ant-Man is slated for November 6th, 2015.

 I don't think he'll be doing it don't know why and no rhyme or reason to my comment. Just a hunch. Liking the Ant Nan movie though. Lets push for that.

Um... no offense. But if it were offered to him, I wouldn't mind seeing Simon Pegg in the role. 

Hear me out. Sometimes great casting isn't obvious. I was surprised when Robert Downey, Jr. was cast as Iron Man. He was popular in the 1980's and fell into obscurity because of his personal drama. RDJ has since made Marvel history. Offbeat casting doesn't always work or else we would've seen Nic Cage as Superman. But I think Simon Pegg would bring a charm to the role, and just a touch of fun. I'd be more excited to see Ant-Man if Pegg was playing him.

So yeah... Simon Pegg for Ant-Man!!

That's funny from Pegg, he could play the part as long as it's not too goofy and stupid.

He would be especially good if they went with the Scott Lang Ant-Man. Perhaps a ne'er-do-well thief who gets ahold of Hank Pym's shrinking/growing invention and at first uses it for burglary but then becomes a hero with it.

Pegg's a pretty talented guy.  I think he act in a mostly serious role.

I'm not very enthused about about this movie anyway and if he's the star my interest in this just subtracted to zero.

 Not saying I don't like him, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are 2 of my fav Brit films. I just can't see him actually doing it. Rizing, no offence taken whatsoever, I want to see Antman on the big screen and not really fussed by who does it to be fair.

Rizing, you are correct. Sometimes great casting isn't obvious. RDJ surprised everyone as being the perfect Iron Man. I have to say, Simon Pegg did a good job in Star Trek so I think if offered therole of Ant-Man he could do a good job in that role as well.

I can't say why but I have no problem with this.
