First Picture of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
Ant-Man has only been filming for one day, but we already have a picture of Paul Rudd as the tiny superhero.
In the photo, he's neither tiny nor super, but looks grizzled and beaten down while standing by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. In keeping with the underdog-reluctant-anti-hero trend that was proven successful by Guardians of the Galaxy, Rudd's Scott Lang is an ex-con and a thief before he turns diminutive safeguard of the Earth. From the looks of this picture, he will be humanized in his origin story with the best of them.
Ant-Man will also star Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, and Judy Greer. John Slattery is also slated to reprise his character in Iron Man 2, Howard Stark. Stark is one of the original co-founders of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as the co-creator of Captain America and the father of Iron Man. Slattery's character is speculated to serve as a tie-in to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The film is directed by Peyton Reed, and is set to be released on July 17, 2015.
