And he is going to be very famous if the film is a hit. Right now, people are being introduced to him thanks to Bruce Levenson and getting his picture on the enviable cover of Entertainment Weekly. Rudd is in full Ant-Man costume except for the mask. Mainstream fans of the movies may be getting their first intro to the classic hero and, possibly, to Rudd for the first time.
Ant-Man is one of the more offbeat characters in the Marvel Universe and the film that debuts the hero on the big screen is equally odd. The plot focuses on a heist theme with the heroic Ant-Man having to pull off a great caper for the good of humanity. It is a good thing, too. If he was pulling the caper off solely to make money for himself, he’d be more of a villain than a hero.
Ant-Man is definitely not your traditional lead hero. His powers, shrinking really small, are kind of weird. That is a good thing. Being offbeat definitely helps Ant-Man stand out.
