Paul Rudd Talks Becoming Ant-Man

From the Disney Insider

We cannot tell you how much we love Marvel’s Ant-Man, opened in theaters (everywhere) Friday. It’s unrelentingly entertaining and inventive, easily fitting into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe puzzle but also standing alone brilliantly on its own. It will probably remind you the most of the first Iron Man, mostly because it’s a character that you might not have heard of, but will quickly become one of your favorite superheroes (maybe ever). Much of this has to do with the lead performance by Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a former criminal and estranged father who finds himself uneasily teaming with the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas), to steal back the technology that allows him to shrink to the size of an insect. It’s basically a heist movie set inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s an absolute blast.

A couple of weeks ago we got to sit down with Rudd and talked about what it was like assuming the mantle, continuing with the character, and finally being cool in his son’s eyes. Watch the video below and be sure to watch Ant-Man this weekend. You’re going to love it as much as we do.
