Default Paul Rudd is Marvel's ANT-MAN (2015)

Paul Rudd as Ant-Man: Marvel Gets it Right Again

Marvel Studios knows a thing or two about a thing or two, and one of the things they know best is casting even if it doesn't always appear that way at first blush.

But all of the naysayers who freaked out when Robert Downey Jr. was cast as Iron Man no longer exist. Downey's work in the film silenced that noise. Since then, hires like Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and the Chrises Evans and Hemsworth as Steve Rogers and Thor have only increased fans' faith in Marvel's casting choices.

It's why there's little to no public outcry about Chris Pratt starring in "Guardians of the Galaxy." Sure, he's best known as the doughy Andy Dwyer on "Parks & Recreation," but any related concerns are mitigated because (a) it's Marvel's call so it's the right call, (b) have you seen Pratt lately, holy wow that dude got jacked, and (c) it's Marvel's call, so it's the right call.

Now, put your ear to the Internet, and tell me what you hear. If you're picking up on any major complaints about Paul Rudd landing the lead role in "Ant-Man," then you have better hearing than I do. The fan reaction proves that once again, Marvel got it right with their newest leading man.

Also seems that Rashida Jones may play The Wasp.

Is this a joke?

A superhero can shrink to the size of an ant.

It was hilarious seeing him run on that glock and bitch slap the dude.

He Can also grow to be huge too like the size of a building.

Ant Man is cool it's just most people have never heard of him. I am wondering how he will fit in with the Avengers though... In action just fine because the Hulk is a brawler, but him and Banner are both scientists and Iron Man kind of is too (though he is many things)... It's a lot of nerds and not much culture. Black Panther would compliment the team better... But his superpowers are too closely related to Captain America's wit the Vibranium stuff.
