Joseph Gordon-Levitt denies the rumors he is being sought for the lead in Ant-Man

Oct. 15, 2013by:

The response to yesterday's news that both Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are being considered for the lead in Marvel's ANT-MAN has been very positive for both candidates. The favor seems to be leaning towards Rudd over Gordon-Levitt, but either choice would put a talented actor in Edgar Wright's superhero film. As is to be expected, there are going to be denials of the rumors, but less than 24 hours after the news broke, we have the first one.

During an interview with Allocine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt made it pretty clear that the rumors have no truth behind them. Here are his exact words on the matter:

"There are always rumors," Gordon-Levitt said, his quotes translated from French. "I talk a lot about my future projects, so if you haven't heard me talk about it, it means it's nothing but a rumor. People like to write about [rumors]."

While he may talk about his projects often via social media and in interviews, Marvel is notoriously tight-lipped with their news until they are ready to make a formal announcement. He denies auditioning or screen-testing for the part but keeps it vague enough by only addressing that the news is just rumors at this point.

I am leaning towards Paul Rudd at this point but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the longer term casting choice for Disney. Hopefully we find out soon who gets the part. ANT-MAN opens on July 31, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Cast both actors and have one as Hank Pym and the other as Scott Lang?

Cobra la la la la la la la la la !!!!!!

Joseph Gordon Levitt does not realize What a Massive Opportunity he had....and maybe STILL has.
He was given the role Equivalent of Darth Vader ................. Cobra Commander! he should try to get it back....since they didnt show the face of Cobra Commander in GIJOE Retaliation. And Take the Role more serious this time.... perhaps its the writers fault and Hasbro. They dont have the Vision it takes to bring Cobra Commander to the screen. GIJOE needs to be as Big as Star

GIJOE needs to be as Big as Star Wars.......AND!!!!!!!! Hasbro needs to cash in Like Avengers and Bring GIJOE and TRANSFORMERS into the same universe to a Theater Near You.

MAKE IT HAPPEN NOW!!!!! Your losing Money Hasbro...don't mess this up.
No need for reboots.....Im glad Duke is Dead....and replace Storm Shadow with a Japanese Actor. and bring Back the Baroness and Destro......but make the Baroness a different woman who just takes the name...didnt like the stupid love triangle with Duke.

These Holllywood hotheads think they can impress us with their version of things.... I DONT want to see YOUR version!

Thank god!

I know I'm one of the few that think this, but this guy needs to go away. I know that won't happen any time soon, but I certainly don't want him in my Marvel movies at the very least.

To be honest

I don't know who Paul Rudd is but he looks more like Hank Pym.

We all know what this denial means: he's already been cast. ;)

That's fine by me. I'm hoping Rudd gets the part anyway. I'm still convinced the third unknown actor trying out for the role is Nathan Fillion or Simon Pegg.

3rd actor

When the news broke out about these 2 actors being the front runners, there was also mentioned of a third actor not yet named. I'm more curious who the mystery 3rd guy is. Nathan Fillion..cough cough. I wish.

Well in the comics Ant Man eventually becomes Yellow Jacket with someone else becoming Ant Man so Rudd could be the first ant man with someone else becoming him later.
