Edgar Wright, Marvel Studios Closing in on Casting Lead Roles in Ant-Man

Over the past two weeks we've heard different rumors leading us to this point: Schmoes Know, who have a source that has fed them some reliable intel in the past, confirm that Marvel is actively trying to sign Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones to play the roles of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne in Edgar Wright's upcoming film, Ant-Man.


Couple of talking points here:

1.  This is an excellent pairing and they lend big names to a  movie that, despite being a Marvel Studio's release, will have some convincing to do to get some folks out to see it.  

2.  I'm happy for my friends over at Superheromovienews.com who were able to break the news on Jones' involvement last week. Read the original EXCLUSIVE piece HERE!
