First Look: Paul Rudd as Marvel’s ANT-MAN
Superheroes and super-villains are taking over box offices everywhere. From Captain America to Thor, the comic book legends are in high demand. The Avengers are even gearing up for yet another installment, but one of the missing characters always coming the rescue is Ant-Man.
Paul Rudd is bringing the hero, based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, to life . Shooting for the latest flick centered on saving the world from certain doom began in Atlanta, Georgia. The area is seeing a lot of filming. FYI – ‘The Walking Dead‘ films all over The Peach State.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero. (Think of Sheldon Cooper’s beloved army ant.) Lang must help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, played by 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.
‘Ant-Man‘ is set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015. Marvel Studios’ upcoming release schedule also includes Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015, Marvel’s “Captain America 3” on May 6, 2016, and Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” on July 28, 2017.
