Marvel farms new material with ‘Ant-Man’.

After assembling the Avengers — twice — and traveling to space with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios’ latest endeavor seems like a decidedly small affair, yet it took the studio longer to bring the incredible shrinking superhero to the big screen than it did to boot up Iron Man, enlist Captain America or nail down Thor for their cinematic debuts. When Marvel Studios announced that Paul Rudd — best known for his comedy work in such films as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Anchorman” and “Clueless” — would star as Ant-Man in their bigscreen adaptation, Rudd understood that some fans might be skeptical about him playing the beloved comic book superhero, who shrinks to insect size to battle crime. “When people heard that I was cast in this movie, I think most people’s reactions were ‘Huh?

She was one of a kind. opened up about his late mother, Diana Douglas Webster, to Us Weekly while attending the premiere of Ant-Man in NYC on Monday, July 13. “I’m just digesting it — what happened,” Douglas, 70, told Us on the red carpet. “She was a lost generation in terms of — she was a class act.While filming Ant-Man, in theaters Friday, the actor tried—and failed—to recreate one of the actress’ most iconic movie scenes while filming a scene of his own with their mutual co-star, Michael Douglas. The storied history of the “Ant-Man” film goes back eight years when “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuss” director Edgar Wright and writer Joe Cornish were originally attached to the project. Really?’” Rudd told Variety Monday night at the film’s Cinema Society screening in New York at the School of Visual Arts Theater. “The majority of my career has been doing comedies, and I was always that guy, so I completely understand. She and Michael Douglas’ father, screen legend Kirk Douglas, were married from 1943 to 1951. “She taught me more about giving it your best shot,” Douglas told Us. “Maintaining decorum.

It’s intimidating, and he’s so nice,” Rudd explained. “I didn’t want him to think that I couldn’t be myself, and I thought, ‘I’m really going to try to be buddy-buddy with the guy.'” “It was his last day and we were doing a close-up, and I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to do? He shrinks, expands and talks to bugs. “I liked that after ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ which was amazingly big with cities falling out of the sky, this was a street-level story,” said “Bring It On” director Peyton Reed, who was brought on after Wright’s departure. “Scott Lang is a normal guy with no powers, and he’s sucked into this bizarre world. It’s been really gratifying.” In “Ant-Man,” Rudd not only made his leading man debut in a Hollywood tentpole, but also co-wrote the screenplay, which centers on a father-daughter relationship. “It’s an emotional story that people can get invested in,” he said. “We wanted to make sure the movie had heart and be funny with all the action.” Michael Peña, who plays a crook and Rudd’s friend, nearly steals every scene he’s in with his dim-witted jokes. That was a cool arc that I hadn’t really seen in a Marvel movie.” Besides Reed’s last-minute addition, Rudd and his “Anchorman” writer-director pal Adam McKay were tapped to rework the script. The “Crash” actor says he did some improvising to get the big laughs in the film. “My performance was probably 50% improv,” Peña said. “When I study a script, I want to do different takes and try to change it up.

Carry on.” The Unlocked star broke his silence on his mother’s death on July 5. “She died peacefully of cancer after having been a patient in palliative care since early June,” he wrote via Facebook. “I will love and miss her forever.” The Oscar winner has been concentrating on work since the tragic loss. Throughout the movie, Lang seeks to reconnect with his daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson), after being released from prison, while Pym and Hope work to reconcile their own strained relationship. “I was thrilled to discover in the Marvel method that there’s a lot of leeway,” said Reed. “They encourage weird, idiosyncratic methods. ‘Ant-Man’ is their 12th film.

Rudd will reprise his role in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War,” which depicts a divide between superheroes siding with Cap and those aligning with Iron Man. It turned out really well.” “I basically didn’t eat anything for about a year,” said Rudd, who shows off his washboard abs onscreen. “I took the Chris Pratt approach to training for an action movie. Eliminate anything fun for a year and then you can play a hero.” As for donning the Ant-Man suit, “It was just cool all the way around,” Rudd said with a big smile. “I felt like the part in that thing. And I’m covering it and then he just stopped and he just looked at me and said, ‘What are you, a f–cking pervert?’ No smiles,” Rudd said of his co-star’s reaction. “I was like, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry.

I’m thankful they planned ahead!” Following the screening, Rudd, Douglas and Peña joined co-stars Corey Stoll (“House of Cards”) and Bobby Cannavale at the rooftop of the Knickerbocker Hotel located in Times Square for the after-party. OK.'” Soon after, on NBC’s Late Night, Douglas revealed that his 14-year-old son Dylan Douglas had actually watched the film Rudd was trying to reenact. “I said, what do you mean you saw Basic Instinct?” “He realized once it slipped it out that somewhere, somehow—you know, Pay-Per-View, whatever you can do to see it—he backtracked very quickly,” the 70-year-old Golden Globe winner told Seth Meyers. “He said, ‘Well, maybe I didn’t.’ I said, ‘Oh, yeah.
