“The way technology has advanced just in the last few years, picturing this world, what they can do with this kind of storyline and character, I thought this could be something that could be very strange and hasn’t been seen before,” Paul Rudd told USA Today about taking on Marvel‘s “Ant-Man.” “I was really excited about being a part of something like that.”
And just one day after production started, the comic studio just released the first official image from the movie, and it’s surprisingly gritty. But we suspect you don’t have to worry about “Ant-Man” indulging in Christopher Nolan-style brooding. The script got a punch-up by funnyman Adam McKay, comedian Gregg Turkington is among the eclectic cast, and remember, “Iron Man 3” looked pretty grimy and realistic at first, but still turned out be a quippy, off-the-cuff movie.
We’ll see when “Ant-Man” opens on July 17, 2015.
