Following the start of production on Ant-Man yesterday, along with the addition of Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale and John Slattery to the cast of Marvel's Phase Three comic book film, we have our first look at the superhero story. Paul Rudd plays a thief named Scott Lang who will go on to become a superhero with the help of scientist and mentor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and now we get to see him looking rugged before he takes a turn towards being a hero. He's got some kind of cut on his face, and looks like he's getting ready for a heist. It's not much, but we're glad Marvel got this out there before spy photos emerged. Look!
Here's the first look at Paul Rudd in Peyton Reed's Ant-Man from USA Today:
Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man) with a script by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, rewritten by Adam McKay and Gabriel Ferrari & Andrew Barrer Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Marvel Studios releases the film next summer on July 17th, 2015.
