Here’s your first official look at star Paul Rudd in Marvel’s “Ant-Man.”
Alas, he’s not wearing the Ant-Man costume. I guess it’s going to be a while, since the movie did just announce the official start of production yesterday.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
The film stars Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.
Peyton Reed directs the film, which is currently scheduled for July 17, 2015.
