Funny as always! Personally I hope Wright and Rudd go outside their comedic comfort zones, and deliver a great movie.

I dated Paul Rudd once.

Anyone else think there's a chance Joaquin Phoenix may appear as The Joker? He's one of few actors working I could see matching the intensity of Ledger.

Joaquin Phoenix would be a great Lex Luthor.
aarobins89 - 12/22/2013, 2:59 PM
Phoenix could work. He has the look but really makes me wonder if they've offered the role to Daniel Day Lewis. He's probably a bit too pricey.
Nerfherder1 - 12/22/2013, 2:59 PM
My guess is lex or metallo... I doubt well see any if the atman rouges in this film

@donkey, it's too bad Michael Shannon was already Zod. He would've made a great joker. Have you seen him in the otherwise boring, Revolutionary Road? Also too bad that lady w/ the weird name I can't remember was Faora because she would have made a great Wonder Woman.

I really like Mr Sunday, but every time I hear him talk it reminds me of this.

blackscienceman - 12/22/2013, 3:13 PM
NAILED the accent, well done sir
Batmaniac - 12/22/2013, 3:14 PM
Phoenix would kill it as Lex.

Hey Trudy, how you doin little guy? Did you want my Facebook address, or maybe I could start a twitter account, and you can follow me there too.
Splenda - 12/22/2013, 3:19 PM

Enphlieuwince - 12/22/2013, 3:22 PM

ALmight, you are a scholar and a gentleman
SageMode - 12/22/2013, 3:31 PM
ANT-MAN will be the 2nd of the two best CBMs of 2015 (with the other being AOU).
ALmazing - 12/22/2013, 3:32 PM
@Jollem-I'd probably scream like a little girl too.

MecoBoy - 12/22/2013, 3:35 PM
Ant man va estar perrona, Me a gustado todas las peliculas de Edgar Wright, no creo que va cambiar con Ant man
ALmazing - 12/22/2013, 3:36 PM
@niceguyeddie-Any time sir.

ALmazing - 12/22/2013, 3:38 PM
@MecoBoy- Ojala que no sea la primera pelicula Marvel que fracase.
Jollem - 12/22/2013, 3:40 PM

niceguyeddie - 12/22/2013, 3:45 PM
@Omega I'm pretty sure that movie ruined my brothers last relationship. Don't ask me how lol
niceguyeddie - 12/22/2013, 3:47 PM
@Mecoboy es la verdad
Jollem - 12/22/2013, 3:48 PM
yeah, it finally took a grenade to put bane down. good luck trying out your ninja moves on him. calm down with f@g thing, btw. doesn't make you seem cool or manly at all
ALmazing - 12/22/2013, 4:02 PM
To anyone concerned about Rudd in Ant Man, the guy can handle action and drama like a pro as shown by this clip.

Luker - 12/22/2013, 4:53 PM
Love these videos-informative and funny

PATRIOTS NATION BABY!!!!! I HOPE THE BEARS LOSE TONIGHT
mgeoff88 - 12/22/2013, 5:17 PM
@Jollem Damn... Ant-Man's costume does look like a gimp suit... Hey, at least the movie will appeal to the S&M demographic, which means more money.

:P

In all seriousness, his costume needs to be redesigned. Ant-Man looks more menacing than heroic.

FRICK YEAHHHH FLEXXX
