Paul Rudd confirmed to play Ant-Man

After months of speculation, Marvel has officially confirmed that Paul Rudd (Wanderlust) will play Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's (The Worlds End) Ant-Man.

In a press release, the studio said Rudd had always been their first choice to fill the diminutive red suit.

"When Edgar came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd we felt a huge sense of relief," said producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. "We knew early on that we had found the right guy. He not only agreed to to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we've ever met with about doing the work. We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."

Marvel's confidence in Wright, co-screenwriter Joe Cornish and Rudd is great enough for it to have pushed Ant-Man into the cinematic boiler room that is summer 2015 – 31 July, to be exact.
