I think that "superhero comedy" is a description that's based on an assumption, because of Wright's previous work.

I think he can pull it off.  Again, I was worried when I heard RDJ at first.  If they are going with an aloof arrogance, he has that.  And I agree, this is not gonna be a straight up comedy.  It will be like all the other Marvel movies with "Some" comedic element.

Wright said something to the effect of comedy to the extent that'll fit with the other Marvel films.

I like Paul Rudd. He was my first choice if they were doing Eric O'Grady Ant-Man. But even if not I'm not worried, I think he can pull it off regardless

 Aren't all Marvel flicks superhero comedies? Hey-O!

I know nothing of Ant Man but I love me some Rudd so I'm there.

 Each of the controversial casting choices announced/rumored lately (Affleck as Batman, Godot as Wonder Woman) has been accompanied by at least a couple of comments attempting to reassure outraged/dubious fans by reminding them to remember how they felt about RDJ's casting as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and every time it seems SO odd to me because I thought the casting was perfect for the character.  My only concern was whether RDJ could keep clean, not with his performance.  Maybe I just wasn't "plugged in" enough at the time, but was there REALLY that much of fan uproar at the casting?  And if so, who were some of the preferred actors?

LivinLaw, I don't think their was an uproar for RDJ in the same sense that has recently come from the Affleck casting. I don't think online commenting had quite reached the rudeness for anything that it has more recently. But I do recall lots of comments of some of his comedic acting not being right because Stark in the minds of many was supposed to be smooth and cool in the Playboy/Hugh Hefner kind of way. I think alot of people were expecting a more Tom Cruise type of actor. I know Cruise was actually attached to the project at one point when Iron Man movie rights were owned by another studio. He wanted it at Marvel as well but the investors who were bankrolling Marvel movies didn't want to pay him 20 mil as his standard salary.

My biggest concern with the first Ironman film wasn't RDJ. It was with Favareu as the director. I wasn't sold on him until I saw the teaser of the flying sequence. I believe that's what got people excited.

I hate to say it, but lets be honest.  Of all the Marvel Characters to be given his own film, Ant-Man was not on my list.  I just don't see enough of a story to build around him.  He was always (in my mind) a member of the avengers, not a stand alone character.  They should of just threw him in Avengers 2 (as the creator of Ultron) and gave this movie spot to the likes of a Black Panther, Doctor Strange or even a real Hulk movie.  But, I'm fine with Rudd as Ant-man, just not in his own movie.

Rudd is awesome. He's incredibly funny and it's great they get a comedy actor playing one of the heroes.

Does everyone knows what Paul Rudd does when he goes on Conan O'Brien to promote a movie? Check it out on you tube, There is a montage of it. Funny shit.
