Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd Top Choices for Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN?

We weren't sure if Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" would actually come to fruition since we've been hearing about the project for so many years now. But since the release of Wright's latest "The World's End", and the release date of "Ant-Man" being pushed up to July 31, 2015, he now seems to be focusing his efforts on the superhero of smaller proportions.

Following the teasing of a photo of the alleged Ant-Man on set, courtesy of Wright, we now apparently have the names of our two front-runners; Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd.

Gordon-Levitt is a popular name to throw in the mix for, let's be honest, almost any role. He is clearly a fan-favorite and has shown he can tackle any subject matter, ranging from comedy to action. But he has already played an important role in Christopher Nolan's incredible Batman franchise in "The Dark Knight Rises". He has also proven he can step behind the lens with his directorial debut "Don Jon". Can the man do no wrong?

Now Rudd is a much less conventional choice on the other hand. When I first heard his name, my initial instinct was definitely no. But the more I think about it, the more I'm ok with it. Sure, he's mostly known for his comedy, which is surely something Wright will be embracing. But the guy can act in dramatic parts as well and just may have a certain level of kookiness that would make a good mad scientist.

Out of these two actors, who would you rather see play Ant-Man? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
