USA Today has the scoop...
The following is an excerpt from First look: Rudd's on the road to being 'Ant-Man'
Paul Rudd is going on a superhero's journey in the new Marvel Studios movie Ant-Man, although these days he's looking decidedly unheroic.
Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man (in theaters July 17, 2015) began production in San Francisco Monday, but by the looks of the first image from the movie, with Rudd's hoodie-clad, unshaven Scott Lang skulking around the Golden Gate Bridge next to a decrepit van, he has a ways to go before he's on the level of the Avengers.
"The way technology has advanced just in the last few years, picturing this world, what they can do with this kind of story line and character, I thought this could be something that could be very strange and hasn't been seen before," Rudd told USA TODAY in July. "I was really excited about being a part of something like that."
