I seem to remember his name popping up a few times over the last couple of years.

Joseph Gordon Levitt over Paul Rudd. But Nathan Fillion over both!

No disrespect to Antman but Gordon-Levitt deserves better.

Rudd would be acceptable.. but can Rudd carry a movie that isnt played as a straight out comedy?

I always pictured Zim as an older person.. maybe Fillian can pull it off

...or do you look at that list and instead of thinking how well they would suit the role, you're just imagining what chemistry they'd bring/have with the other Avengers?

I don't know the character at all so I couldn't really say who should play him, but I'm intrigued by the prospect of Paul Rudd as a superhero...

I went for Rudd as I'd like Pym to be a bit older, closer to Stark or Banner's age... also because I'd love to see him work with Wright.

Personally, though, this is the role I'm still rooting for Nathan Fillion to play.

WTF? Paul Rudd is a TERRIBLE choice. Are you people serious? Might as well pick Steve Carrell then. Or Seth Rogen.
Joseph Gordon Levitt's connection with DC would make him a strange casting, so how about someone else? Wouldn't mind Nathan Fillion, or an unknown maybe?

I think both could work. Joseph Gordon Levitt seems the most obvious choice because he's got proven form outside of comedy. Paul Rudd is more of a gamble, but you've got to trust Edgar Wright and Marvel here because they've proven they can handle big casting decisions.

A lot of the dismissal of Paul Rudd seems to be because we're struggling to see beyond the kind of roles he's played before. Just because he's previously focused more on comedy roles doesn't mean that's all he can do. Remember all the scepticism about Heath Ledger being cast as the Joker and look how that turned out.

But still… I'd prefer Nathan Fillion for EVERY role in the movie. It worked fine for Eddie Murphy in The Klumps...

Paul Rudd is has the right amount of charm to pull this off. It is not about being a comedy actor. It is about getting the right tone and I really think Rudd can get that right. I also think Hank Azaria could be a fun choice,

I like both actors - JGL more so but Rudd is more than competent for this kind of comic book fare! I suppose I'd prefer to see Rudd in the role of Ant-Man purely because I want Levitt to play Dr Strange when Marvel eventually get around to doing it.

Nathan Fillion of course is every geeks first choice (myself included) but unfortunately that just aint gonna happen!!

Antman.............can this really be a good movie, one of these marvel flicks is gonna crash and burn. Keep the budget tight and lean..Rudd or Levitt, it could work.

50% of film is Rudd as Pym in the 1960s, intercut with 50% JGL as Scott Lang in present day AND an aged Rudd as elderly (and permanently shrunk) Pym. Oh, and Simon Pegg as the villain for both heroes (regardless of who said villain is).

Paul Rudd would be great, but please, please no jgl. He's got to be the most overrated actor right now. He's incapable of playing anything besides bland and stupid.

Never considered Paul Rudd, he could work. I first thought Nathan Fillion but maybe he is a bit old for the part now. Here's one out of left field how about Michael Cera or possibly Jesse Eisenburg??

I think there are fewer stars these days and there's a bit of saturation going on. I'd say no to JGL just because he was in Batman. Chris Evans only got away with doing Cap because F4 was dog-egg and he does Stever Rogers so very well. But, Chris Hemworth was not that well known before Thor and he fits it like a glove, so I think audiences would be happy to see someone new, as long as they're really good. How many people knew about Tom Hiddleston before Loki? And how much do we all love him now?
