UPDATE: It's official: Paul Rudd is the lead in Edgar Wright's Marvel movie Ant-Man, according to The Wrap. But which version of the size-changing ant-themed superhero is he possibly going to play?
The Wrap says Rudd is in talks to play the role of Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, and THR backs up their claim. Rudd has been deflecting this question for weeks, but now apparently it's a done deal. He's still just in talks — but reading between the lines, it sounds as though he's got the part already. The other rumored Ant-Man candidate, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has just committed to star in (and maybe direct) Sandman.
