Paul Rudd is 'trying really hard' to get Ant-Man in an 'Avengers' movie

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Would you like to see Paul Rudd in an "Avengers" movie? So would Paul Rudd. "I'm trying really hard to make my case for it," Rudd smiled when asked whether Ant-Man might show up in, say, "Avengers: Infinity War." Okay, good luck with that. So how about "Captain America: Civil War"? Will Ant-Man be in that movie? "Um...I don’t know," he answered with a smirk. Rudd was in Sin City, in case you were wondering, to receive CinemaCon's Male Star of the Year award, which is commonly known as a precursor to the Oscar (not really). For more from the actor, including what it was like wearing the Ant-Man suit and how they're going to make the character "cool," watch the full interview above. "Ant-Man" hits theaters on July 17. »

Paul Rudd Teases Ant-Man’s Future Appearances In The McU

24 April 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If last summer’s Guardians of The Galaxy proved anything, it was that Marvel’s finely-tuned formula for multiplex success could withstand a major overhaul. The James Gunn-directed space comedy threw out the comic book movie rules and pleased audiences with its irreverence And action.

One of the next newcomers bestowed with the honor of a solo movie is the micro-sized Ant-Man, whose own outing seems to hew closely to Gunn’s comedy stylings. The latest trailer, which debuted last week, veered into more comical territory, and according to leading man Paul Rudd, that decision has left some folks somewhat befuddled.

“I think that there is [a lot of comedic elements], but at the same time, it’s not an out-and-out comedy,” he tells MTV. “There’s a lot of stuff that’s funny, but there’s also a lot of action, and there are relationships that you’ll care about. My hope is people are surprised by it. »

Is Ant-Man A Comedy? Paul Rudd Tries To Explain

24 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As the connected cinematic universe of Marvel Studios gets set to unveil its latest crown jewel with Avengers: Age of Ultron next week, the film that will immediately follow in the continuity, Ant-Man is still in the odd position of having to explain its place in the grander scheme. This is a fact not lost on Paul Rudd, as he attempts to illustrate where the film falls, genre-wise. Sitting down with MTV News, Paul Rudd, who plays the titular size-shifting superhero of Ant-Man, would discuss the quandary of the film.s genre identity. While clearly showcasing some serious action/sci-fi elements, it.s also apparent that the film.s creative forces are actually notable talent in the world of comedy. Addressing the film.s comedic elements, Rudd states, It.s not an out-and-out comedy. I think that it.s a tough one to peg. There.s a lot of stuff »

24 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's official - Cara Delevingne is a rising star in the world of acting.

The 22-year-old model dazzled in a sheer black Alexandre Vauthier bodysuit as she picked up the Rising Star award at CinemaCon 2015 in Las Vegas last night (April 23), to add to her Breakthrough Actress accolade she collected at this year's Elle Style Awards.

Delevingne was joined at the star-studded ceremony by Paper Towns co-star and fellow Rising Star winner Nat Wolff.

The pair lead the cast of the highly-anticipated movie adaptation of John Green's 2008 young adult novel, which tells the story of the enigmatic Margo and the impressionable Quentin.

The romantic adventure - directed by Robot & Frank's Jake Schreier - sees Quentin being enlisted by his crush and neighbour Margo to help her get revenge on people who have hurt her.

However, Quentin is left clueless when Margo suddenly disappears, and he sets out to find her. »

Paul Rudd Teases Ant-man's Future In The Marvel Cinematic Universe And More

24 April 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the following interview, Paul Rudd expresses his enthusiasm to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Ant-Man, discussing getting into shape to play Scott Lang, his love of Marvel Studios and "mad scientist" Kevin Feige, and how he feels about the movie's chances of success. Rudd also addresses the mixed response to the first trailer, making it clear that Ant-Man isn't an out and out comedy, but explaining that it's going to be a funny movie. He then goes on to talk in detail about how Edgar Wright's departure may have been because Marvel wanted to make Ant-Man a greater part of the McU - rather than a standalone movie - and reveals that he expects to see the character turn up elsewhere because he's actually spoken to the studio about exactly that.  Rumour has it that Ant-Man will show up in Captain America: Civil War, so stay tuned for updates. »

Amy Schumer asks Hollywood 'don't show any more Kevin Hart movies'

24 April 2015 12:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - CinemaCon wrapped up its fifth year with their version of the Hollywood Film Awards, a fake awards show where the winners were predetermined and picked by studio lobbying and, um, who was available.  This year's winners included Best Actress Oscar champ Julianne Moore, Francis Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, the cast of the "Fantastic Four," Rose Byrne and Paul Feig (who had his "Spy" actor Bobby Cannavale walk on stage and throw a pie in his face).  The, cough, winners who really stole the show, however, were Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart and Paul Rudd. Because the show isn't broadcast and it's unlikely video will ever be released, what better way to end our CinemaCon coverage with some of the best acceptance speeches of the night.  Let's begin with "Trainwreck" star Schumer who won Breakthrough Performer of the Year and had the funniest overall speech of the night.

Watch: Not Even Paul Rudd's Kids Care He's Playing Ant-Man, Plus: A New Clip From the Movie

23 April 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron may hit theaters in just over a week, but forget about that. It hasn't come out yet, but it's old news and we're already onto the next, next Marvel hotness: Ant-Man. Star Paul Rudd, who is also now an official writer on the movie (but more on that in a bit), stopped by David Letterman's place this week for a bit of promotion and brought with him a clip from Ant-Man showing his first encounter with the miracle shrinking suit. There aren't really any spoilers in the clip, so don't worry on that front, it's just a brief look into the tone and humor of the movie. Perhaps an even better look at those crucial elements, however, is Rudd's actual chat with Letterman, which is basically a self-deprecating bit about how no...

Here's How The Ant-man Screenwriting Credits Sort Out

23 April 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Recently, Avengers: Age of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon called Edgar Wright's Ant-Man script the best Marvel script he's ever read.  Too bad that's not the version fans will see in theaters on July 17, 2015.   Originally, Wright and Joe Cornish wrote the McU introduction for Henry Pym (Michael Douglass) and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) before the Wright and Marvel Studios parted ways over creative differences.  Wright and Cornish first started working on Ant-Man in 2003. Adam McKay was brought in by Marvel to replace Wright as writer And director but was unable to commit to directing due to scheduling conflicts.  Marvel then came up with the solution of using McKay's script with Peyton Reed sitting in the director's chair.  Throughout the revision process, lead actor Paul Rudd was also brought in to address script changes.   So here's how official writing credits shake down: Ant-Man story by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish Ant-Man »

Ant-Man Clip: Watch Paul Rudd Stumble Into An Important Discovery

23 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Marvel.s main push this year is Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there.s a little, big-budget movie coming just a few months after. That would be Ant-Man! Peyton Reed took over for Edgar Wright in helming the story of Scott Lang.s adventures as the size-shrinking defender, and now Marvel has unleashed the first clip from the superhero heist movie.  The clip originally debuted on The Late Show with David Letterman, though Comic Book Resources snagged a copy for the Internet. Here, we meet Paul Rudd as Lang, a master thief looking to score something big. With the help of his accomplices, he breaks into a vault using ingenious scientific reasoning . "ice expands but metal doesn.t" . but there are no jewels or cash to plunder. Instead, he finds the Ant-Man suit, or as he calls it, "an old motorcycle suit." Silly rabbit!  It.s unclear at which point »

Ant-man Clip: Paul Rudd Isn’t Impressed by the Ant-Man Suit

23 April 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

That last Ant-Man trailer was above and beyond the first one, but I find that clips reveal far more about the quality of a full feature so have been especially eager to see a lengthier scene from the film. During an appearance on Late Night With David LettermanPaul Rudd unveiled some footage and while there's absolutely nothing wrong with the material, it is a bit underwhelming for a first clip from the film. However, clips for talk shows do tend to be simple and brief in order to familiarize the viewership with the material quickly, so perhaps the first one to pop up on Marvel's YouTube page will be a bit more comprehensive and exciting than this. Check out the Ant-Man clip below. The film opens July 17th and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Judy Greer,Gregg Turkington, »

Watch: Paul Rudd Steals The ‘Ant-Man’ Costume In First Clip; Marvel Settles Writing Dispute With Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish

23 April 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When Marvel released its first official credits for their upcoming super hero movie “Ant-Man,” the screenplay credits read: written by Adam McKay & Paul Rudd with a story written by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish. Had the screenplay been that radically changed that Wright and Cornish, the original writers of the screenplay developed and rewritten over eight years, wouldn’t get a credit? That didn’t really pass the smell test a few months ago given that the WGA almost always favors the original writers that filled up the blank page. Given WGA rules, it’s perhaps no surprise that Marvel has changed their mind — and or Wright and Cornish fought for what they thought was theirs and won. Apparently the dispute went down to WGA arbitration and Wright and Cornish won (via The Wrap). That means the screenplay is now credited to four writers and reads: Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd. »

Ant-Man Writing Credits Are Made Official After Production Difficulties

23 April 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arbitration to determine the legally binding, official writing credits of movies seem to be quite common occurrences – particularly in this age of studios commissioning several versions of scripts before cameras even roll. The implications are far-reaching for the writers involved, affecting everything from income to professional standing and reputation, but most are resolved without coverage from the press. Those headlines that do feature writing credit disputes are often attempts to generate salacious gossip or cause conflict where none previously existed, but with Ant-Man, the situation is somewhat different. This is as important to the fans as it is to the writers.

As a film adaptation of a Marvel comic book, Ant-Man began as Edgar Wright’s brain-child, which he nurtured and developed for almost a decade before getting the official nod from Marvel. He wrote the script with collaborator Joe Cornish (Attack The Block), and got the film almost entirely through its pre-production phase, »

Ant-Man script dispute resolved: Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish get writing credit

22 April 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's bulk of the work on Ant-Man won't go unnoticed after all, as a dispute over writing credit is finally resolved.

Adam McKay and Paul Rudd rewrote the screenplay when Wright withdrew as director for the pint-sized superhero film, but much of his original work was still used.

Peyton Reed, who assumed directing duties, apparently worked off Wright's original storyboards too.

According to The Wrap, Marvel and the four writers have now settled the dispute during arbitration and will share the screenplay credit. Wright and Cornish however, will also receive a 'story by' credit.

Wright decided to step down from the project in May last year, owing to "creative differences".

Rudd stars in Ant-Man as a petty criminal named Scott Lang, who finds himself able to change size and communicate with insects due to technology created by Dr Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).
