It’s official. The rumors didn’t last too long before actually becoming confirmed news. Paul Rudd, the comedic actor from “Anchorman,” “40 Year-OId Virgin” will now star in Marvel’s next blockbuster venture: “Ant-Man.”
Ant-Man is the next hero in Marvel’s comic book to silver screen transformation. Marvel said the choice of Rudd, 44, reflected the studio’s desire “to cast actors that bring several dimensions to its onscreen heroes.”
The film, to be directed by Edgar Wright, is scheduled for release in mid-2015.
