re: Ant-Man (2015, Wright) S:Rudd

According to IGN, cast will be known before the end of the year, and Feige says Ant-man will be a 'heist' flick:

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/...re-year-is-out


Marvel Studios' president of production Kevin Feige explained to IGN, in an extended interview which you can watch at the bottom of the page, that the British director is currently in the Marvel offices every day "tweaking the drafts [of the script] with Joe Cornish... and we're crewing up and prepping. There should be cast announcements, probably before the end of the year."
He also went on to explain that Ant-Man, which is scheduled for a July 2015 release, won't be your regular super hero movie as it will straddle another genre entirely - the heist movie.

I'm thinking with the heist aspect it may be Eric O'Grady. Sounds like what he did to a point. He was the last guy to hold the name, I think he's dead now.

He's not my Ant-Man though. Hank Pym all the way.

Hello Schmoeville!

Things are heating up on the Marvel front with ANT MAN and we here at Schmoes Know have the goods! By the by, I’m giddy like a school boy. Or is it school girl? Either way, I’m giddy. That’s the gist.

Thanks to our very reliable source, the same one that gave us the goods on the BEETLEJUICE 2 news we broke last week, we have here another very interesting development for Edgar Wright’s ANT MAN…

Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones are close to becoming Han Pym and Janet Van Dyne!
Is this Schmoe guy legit?

Ant-Man Casting Call:

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/11/...medium=twitter


new casting breakdowns for the long-gestating Edgar Wright film seem to suggest maybe Pym isn’t the version of the eventual Avenger we’re going to get at all.

This one in particular:

Young girl, aged 6 to 9 – intelligent and appealing

seems like it could be a good fit for Cassie Lang, daughter of Scott Lang, the second man to don the Ant-Man costume and moniker and fight crime alongside other Marvel superheros.
But do Rudd and Gordon-Levitt seem like good fits for Lang? Really, aren’t they more suited Eric O’Grady, the low level S.H.I.E.L.D. operative with few morals and self-serving conniving tendencies who steals the suit for his own selfish gain? Hard to say, but here are the rest of the characters seeking actors:

Asian male, 30s – huge, tough and intimidating, comic ability

Caucasian male, 30s – over 6′, dangerous and rough, comedic

Italian-American male, 50s – scary and unusual features, deadpan humour

Russian male – 30s or 40s, wiry and smart, deadpan humour

Male, 20s or 30s – Under 5’8″, smart and funny

Marvel is ready to name their next superhero as sources tell Variety that Paul Rudd is in early negotiations to star in “Ant-Man.”

Paul Rudd working with Edgar Wright would be very exciting.

Report: Marvel Chooses Its Big Screen ANT-MAN

The next Marvel Cinematic Universe star is Paul Rudd. That's what trades Variety and Hollywood Reporter reported late Wednesday night, saying that Rudd has been pegged to star as the titular Ant-Man in the Edgar Wright-directed first film of "Phase 3" of the MCU.

Rudd, rumored for the role as far back as the late summer months of 2013, was believed to be a long-time front-runner with only Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the other possibility. It's possible, though unconfirmed, that JGL's commitment with Warner Bros for a Sandman film took him officially out of the running.

Interestingly, there is no official mention yet as to which Ant-Man Rudd will portray, though it's believed the scripted calls for the original. In the comics, there have been three, Hank Pym being the first and most famous in the role, and a founding member of the Avengers. Scott Lang was next, a reformed criminal who currently serves as the replacement leader of the Fantastic Four while Reed Richards and his family adventure through time and space. The third, Eric O'Grady, worked as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has of course been well established in the MCU.

Ant-Man is scheduled for a July 31, 2015 opening.

Very excited by this news.

Now get Rashida Jones on this too and it'll be a trifecta of awesome.

I am really not a Paul Rudd fan. I find him overrated and unfunny. However, i am a big Edgar Wright fan and he can make even the most annoying of actors watchable (Michael Cera in Scott Pilgrim is a perfect example). Although i was disappointed with The Worlds End. Kinda glad the Corneto Trilogy came to an end. Still have high hopes that he will direct a visually spectacular Marvel Super Hero Movie.

So far he's the best director the MCU has. And easily the best one to work with action. So I've a lot of excitement for this one.

Awesome news. Rudd is really one of my favorite comedic actors now days. It should be interesting seeing him in a Wright film and also in a super hero role.

re: Ant-Man (2015, Wright) S: Rudd, Douglas

Wright:
"Well, the thing is that what we want to do, the idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both. Is to have a film that basically is about Henry Pym and Scott Lang, so you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60's, in sort of "Tales to Astonish" mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang's story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him. So it's like an interesting thing, like the "Marvel Premiere" one that I read which is Scott Lang's origin, it's very brief like a lot of those origin comics are, and in a way, the details that are skipped through in the panels and the kind of thing we'd spend half an hour on."

Is that new or old? Cuz he has said that kind of stuff years ago before the MCU took off like it did. The fresh bit to me is Lang teaming up with Pym.
