Paul Rudd has been cast in the title role for Marvel’s Ant-Man. Now the studio has publicly confirmed the news, announcing that Rudd will play Henry Pym in the Edgar Wright-directed film.
Kevin Feige said, “When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star. We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we’d ever met with about doing the work, we knew we’d found the right guy. We couldn’t be more excited for our audiences to see what he’s going to do to bring Ant-Man to life.”
The film will be released on July 31st, 2015.
