First Look at Paul Rudd in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

With production under way on “Ant-Man” in San Francisco, Marvel Studios has released the first photo of Paul Rudd in character in the film.

Rudd plays conman Scott Lang who must help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his Ant-Man suit, which gives the ability to shrink in scale and increase his strength. Using the suit, the two plan to pull off a heist that will save the world.

Marvel started principal photography Aug. 19 in San Francisco with Peyton Reed at the helm. Much of the film will shoot in Atlanta.
