RUMOR: Alan Tudyk To Play Ant-Man?

An anonymous scooper has given me word that Alan Tudyk of Firefly is locked in to play the role of Ant-Man in a solo film and a cameo in The Avengers, as well as some interesting stuff about heroes The Wasp and Wonder Man...

NOTE: I am not in anyway reporting this as fact. I thought I would share this email that I have been pushing back posting for close to a month just to see what your opinions were on the possibility of these casting choices.

About two weeks back I received an email from an anonymous scooper going by the name of Mister Orange(Reservoir Dogs?) claiming to be close to the production of Edgar Wright's adaption of the comic character Ant-Man. In another email unfortunately and accidentally deleted by me, Mister Orange goes on to say he is concept artist on the film and did not answer any more of my questions do to fear of saying too much.



Hi Mister Orange here, I am close to the production of director Edgar Wright's Ant-Man movie. Now as you may have heard it was jokingly reported by The Avengers director Joss Whedon that star of his show Firefly, Actor Nathan Fillion would be Ant-Man. But I have news on the contrary, In fact another Firefly star Alan Tudyk is not only locked in for a solo film for the character, but will briefly appear in The Avengers as the character's scientist counter part Hank Pym Along with wife and fellow super hero Janet Van Dyne(both whose transformation into Ant-Man and Wasp will be shown as the after the credits scene in The Avengers). Both characters will be in the process of creating Ultron(who is set up for the villein role in the solo film). The solo film will start filming directly after The Avengers with a cameo from Wonder Man, A role that is actually being largely considered for Fillion.


Now again I will stress that I am not reporting this as fact as much as I would love it to be. The reason I actually took the leap of faith and posted this was due to the fact that it very well could be possible. Aside from the fact that this just an email with no proof to back it up it still very much falls into the realm of reality. The Avengers will hit theaters with or without Ant-Man or Tudyk May 4, 2012. The solo film Ant-Man has no release or an official start date. Confirm, debunk, or comment below.
