Paul Rudd Interview: From Ant-Man to Civil War!

In our exclusive Paul Rudd interview, the Ant-Man star talks suiting up for his solo film and joining the ensemble Captain America: Civil War!

Tonight, Marvel Studios’ latest cinematic superhero hits the big screen and, all this week, has been celebrating with a week of exclusive video interviews with the cast and crew of Ant-Man. Following our conversations with Corey Stoll (who plays the film’s villain, Darren Cross), Peyton Reed (who directed the film) and David Dastmalchian and Michael Peña (who play Kurt and Luis), we’ve got a very special interview with Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd! Not only does Paul Rudd discuss the work that went into making Ant-Man as both an actor and a writer, he discusses his experiences suiting up with the Avengers in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War! Check it out in the player below.

In addition to Rudd, Ant-Man stars Evangeline Lilly (“LOST,” The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies) and Michael Douglas (The GameAnd So It Goes) and brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

The Ant-Man cast also features Bobby Cannavale, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Wood Harris and Judy Greer. Check back tomorrow for our final interview with Evangeline Lilly!
