It seems like forever since it was revealed that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World director, Edgar Wright was announced to bring the tiniest Avenger to the big screen. Earlier this month we received word that, This Is 40 star Paul Rudd and The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt were the front-runners for the title role. Now, I’ll level with you, I’m usually never this formal in my writing, but when it comes to delivering a scoop or an exclusive, I shine my shoes and comb my hair. Late last year, I got a strange email from an anonymous source, I would tell you who it is, but my source has told me not to. So anyway, back to the source, I received an email in November of last year that read, “Edgar Wright plans to have Paul Rudd play Ant-Man.” That’s a legitimate quote from the email. Now, this was in November. So if you follow me on Twitter (@RobDogg_) you’d know, that for months I’ve been saying “Paul Rudd for Ant-Man.” And look at us now.

Rashida Jones is the front-runner for the Janet role.
So, the same source that told me about the Paul Rudd thing has contacted me again. I was actually contacted on Monday, but I went through multiple sites and contacted some friends to track down and find out how legit this rumour actually is, so bare with me here. The new rumour that is going around says, that The Wasp WON’T feature in Ant-Man, but Janet Van Dyne WILL. The source says, “Janet will be a love interest and a major supporting character, we would see multiple references to her future as The Wasp throughout the film.” As if this wasn’t enough, the source later told me WHO Marvel and Edgar Wright had in their eyes for the role. It seems that Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones is on top of Marvel’s shortlist for the role of 'Janet Van Dyne'. Rashida Jones is said to be Marvel’s top pick for her “chemistry with the other actors.” The source highlighted Paul Rudd and Parks & Recreation co-star, Chris Pratt. Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones have starred opposite each other in two films, those films being, I Love You Man & Our Idiot Brother.

So, how do you guys feel about this? Are you on board? Do you think The Wasp will appear in Ant-Man? Or do you think Janet will be the closest thing to Wasp for now? How do you feel about Rashida Jones? Be sure to like us on Facebook and share this with your friends! Thanks for reading and I’m out for now.
