This evening Variety reported that sources have told them that the two actors who have emerged as front-runners for the titular role in Ant-Man, are Joseph Gordon Levitt and Paul Rudd! It is also said, that insiders warn there is still a small possibility that another actor could emerge, but as of now, Gordon-Levitt and Rudd are the main contenders for the film.
They will meet with Marvel execs and director Edgar Wright one more time before a final decisions is made. So what do you think of these choices? These seem to be more of an everyman actor, an ordinary guy with a wise-cracking personality for the role, which I think works better considering Hank Pym is scientist. Both will bring something different to the role, so I look forward to seeing Marvel’s final pick. Ant-Man is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 31, 2015. (Source: Variety)
