One of the most frequent superhero related topics recently has been the casting for Edgar Wright’s (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’S End) next film which will be based on Marvel ComicsAnt-man. The film will be the first of Marvel Studios’ ‘Phase III’ line of films after ‘Phase I’ began with 2008′s Iron Man and culminated with last years Avengers, and of course ‘Phase II’ began earlier this year with the record breaking Iron Man 3.

Recent rumours have pointed to both Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, Looper) and Paul Rudd (Dinner For Schmucks, Anchorman) being in contention for the role. However it’s starting to look as if my personal favourite for the role, Rudd, may be the current front runner for Henry Pym/Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel Production set to shoot in Atlanta. Edgar Wright has weighed in on the rumours »
