Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd “front-runners” for Marvel’s Ant-Man


Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd are reportedly the “front-runners” for Marvel’s upcoming flick Ant-Man.

According to Variety‘s sources, Gordon-Levitt and Rudd are the main contenders to play the shrunken superhero, though they do provide some wiggle room by adding “there’s still a remote possibility another actor could emerge.”

Gordon-Levitt told AlloCine (translated by The Playlist) that any claims he had passed an audition were “nothing but lies.”

Director Edgar Wright similarly Tweeted an enigmatic Ant-Man comic cover, which ponders the question, “Is this the real Ant-Man or an imposter?!”

But back to Variety’s piece.

Their insiders believe Gordon-Levitt and Rudd will meet with Marvel execs and Wright once more before an official decision is made.

With a release date set for July 2015, the decision will have to be made soon.
