There are reports that Marvel is interested in Paul Rudd or Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Ant-Man. There might be a third actor added to the list later.
I like Paul Rudd as much as anyone. I do. I’ve seen about six or seven of his movies in theaters over the years. I think I even saw Halloween six more than once (he was in it.) When he is good, he is really good. I don’t think of him as a superhero type though. He might be too comedic.
Joseph Gordon Levitt might be a better choice for a superhero. He is a bit less comedic or more dramatic than Rudd. Or at least he is less associated with comedy than Rudd and he has been in a superhero movie and a science fiction movie.
I am not sure that either actor is the best choice. Maybe it would be good to go with a lessor known actor. It worked for Thor.
More news about this soon, I hope.
