Default Re: Ant-Man Casting Thread

I like the idea of Rudd as Pym. Out-of-the-box casting that also makes me say "yeah, I never considered that before but that could work" is my favorite kind of casting. And Rudd certainly meets that criteria. Pym's a super genius and all but he's always been the most blue-collar or schlub-like of Marvel's superhero brain trust(Stark, Banner, Richards, T'Challa). It's added to his long time inferiority complex which is pretty unique to him as a superhero and Rudd would fit in fine in that kind of role.
