Negotiations are still happening but it appears Paul Rudd might be the star of Marvel’s Ant-Man. Representatives for Marvel and Paul Rudd have no comments.

He was one of the top two actors considered for the role. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is now cast as DC Comics The Sandman.

Edgar Wright is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Cornish, based on the Marvel comic book character created by Jack Kirby. Production has not yet started for this highly-anticipated comic book adaptation.

In the comics, Hank Pym is a scientist who invents a substance that allows him to shrink to the size of an ant and can talk to them. Ant Man project is part of the Marvel’s Phase Three movies.

Ant Man with The Wasp will join the Avengers in a future movie.

–12/19 Update:  Marvel Confirms It’s True!

Producer Kevin Feige in a post this evening on Marvel.com: “When [director] Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star. We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul. When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we’d ever met with about doing the work, we knew we’d found the right guy. We couldn’t be more excited for our audiences to see what he’s going to do to bring Ant-Man to life.” The pic is set for a July 31, 2015 release.
