Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Sources tell Variety the two actors who have emerged as front-runners to land the title role in the superhero feature are Joseph Gordon Levitt and Paul Rudd. Insiders warn there’s still a remote possibility another actor could emerge but as of now, Gordon-Levitt and Rudd are the main contenders the role.
Even though the article writes it as though they are both contesting for the same role, Pym presumably, maybe that's not the case.

How about Rudd as Pym and Levitt as Lang?

Batman to Antman?

That's a serious demotion.

Even not quite Robin to Ant-Man is a demotion.

On the other hand, supporting actor in a huge movie as oppose to title and lead character?

^Exactly my thoughts. Also, Blake was a one-off role, whereas Pym has potential to be recurring.

JGL says the Ant-Man rumour isn't true.

I hope the Rudd rumor is. That has the potential to be very, very, cool.

I would love it if it turned out to be Paul Rudd.

Kevin Feige sort of addresses the Paul Rudd/Ant-man rumors:

Paul Rudd's name is out there for Ant-Man. That would be fun if it's true. I have no idea if it's true.

Well, nothing is true yet. I like Paul Rudd, too.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/1...n_4123119.html

Rumor that the front runner to play the Janet Van Dyne is Rashida Jones:

http://www.superheromoviesnews.com/2...medium=twitter

So, the same source that told me about the Paul Rudd thing has contacted me again. I was actually contacted on Monday, but I went through multiple sites and contacted some friends to track down and find out how legit this rumour actually is, so bare with me here. The new rumour that is going around says, that The Wasp WON’T feature in Ant-Man, but Janet Van Dyne WILL. The source says, “Janet will be a love interest and a major supporting character, we would see multiple references to her future as The Wasp throughout the film.” As if this wasn’t enough, the source later told me WHO Marvel and Edgar Wright had in their eyes for the role. It seems that Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones is on top of Marvel’s shortlist for the role of 'Janet Van Dyne'. Rashida Jones is said to be Marvel’s top pick for her “chemistry with the other actors.” The source highlighted Paul Rudd and Parks & Recreation co-star, Chris Pratt. Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones have starred opposite each other in two films, those films being, I Love You Man & Our Idiot Brother.
Interesting to Note that Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones have a ton of chemistry with each other from previous movies.

They'll need lots of chemistry to get past the fact that he has major shrinkage issues....

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

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.

Interesting. I'm curious what that entirely means, but it will hopefully be interesting an exciting. I know the plan is to make it stand-alone, but I'm curious if there are plans to bring Ant-Man to the Avengers (even if just in the post-credits scene).

BTW, what was that last question in the interview, I couldn't quite make it out?

ETA: Not that it was really in doubt, but it's clear they're actively pursuing a Doctor Strange movie.

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? Add another source to the mix, but there is definitely some smoke here.
