Alan Tudyk On The Possibilities Of S.H.I.E.L.D., ANT-MAN And More FIREFLY
Firefly alum Alan Tudyk discusses the possibilities of playing Ant-Man, joining Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. and returning for more shenanigans aboard the Serenity.
Alan Tudyk has gone on to enjoy a pretty successful career since his Firefly days with roles in 3:10 To Yuma, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Wreck-It Ralph, and Young Justice to name a few. There were very early rumors swirling around his name concerning Edgar Wright's Ant-Man and they still persist to this day. In a recent interview with Hypable, Tudyk frankly addresses the chances of him playing Hank Pym (or Scott Lang).
"I’ve heard about that[the rumor of me playing Ant-Man], but no. [It's a shame] I know, I’m a fan of ants. But no.”
So Ant-Man is a no-go for Tudyk. How about another Marvel project, perhaps Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. show. Tudyk just happened to be on set recently. Was it for a cameo?
"I just saw Joss the other day. I just went and checked out the… what is that show they’re doing? S.H.I.E.L.D. Not SWAT. Shows how much I know about it (laughs). I just happened to be on the lot where they were shooting...And I went by and Joss was there, it was very cool."
Tudyk wasn't there to film a guest role but who knows what he and Joss discussed while he was on set. Perhaps Joss informed him of a future role he had in mind for him. And while the two were together, you have to wonder if the conversation turned towards more Firefly, something Joss stated he'd like to potentially explore after The Avengers 2.
"I really think there’s a chance that it[a Firefly resurrection] could happen. I think that as we go forward, as it gets cheaper to shoot in digital … yeah, I hope so. We all want it.
