Oh yes, Ant-Man is really happening, and there’s finally some casting news. According to Variety, Marvel has narrowed casting of the lead role, Henry Pym, down to two frontrunner candidates: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd.
It’s pretty clear based on these two actors what the general type of Ant-Man they’re going for is. Not too muscly or overpowering, likely quick-witted and probably adorable.
In the comics, Ant-Man is a brilliant scientist, whose superpower (the ability to change size) comes from his own invention, so we may get a wacky scientist vibe from JGL or Rudd, whoever wins out.
Who are you rooting for?
