Sources say the two actors who have emerged as front-runners to land the title role in the superhero feature are Joseph Gordon Levitt and Paul Rudd. Insiders warn there’s still a remote possibility another actor could emerge but as of now, Gordon-Levitt and Rudd are the main contenders for the film. They also indicate the two are expected to meet with Marvel execs and Wright one more time before a decision is made and that there’s also a possibility of another actor entering the mix.
As most comic fans know, In the comics, Henry Pym aka. Ant-Man is a brilliant scientist who invented a substance that allowed him to change his size.
My money would be on Paul Rudd at this moment. He’s someone older, can pass as a genius, and be funny. Not to mention he is someone you can look at past his appearance. JLG sorta feels too young and casting him would fee like they are catering to a younger audience rather than those familiar with Ant-Man.
How about you?
