Marvel has finally begun shooting Ant-Man, and to prove it, they’ve released the first official image of Paul Rudd as the character. Unfortunately he’s not in costume, but the photo does give us an idea of what the overall film will look like. Click on the image above for a bigger version!
Ant-Man was slated to begin shooting a few months ago, but the production schedule was thrown into chaos after a falling out between the studio and original director Edgar Wright. He was replaced by Yes Man director Peyton Reed, and now everything is back on track for the film to hit theatres on July 17, 2015.
