Joaquin Phoenix is Lex Luthor & Paul Rudd As Ant-Man?

Were Mark Strong and Simon Pegg unavailable? The internet seems abuzz today with the apparent rumors that Paul Rudd is in negotiations to play Hank Pym AKA Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel film of the same name. Meanwhile rumors abound that Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to go up against Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Lex Luthor in the next ‘Man of Steel’.

While the Phoenix may be only a rumor, the Paul Rudd story comes from Variety, who know a thing or two about casting. Interesting choice, I’m not too sure if they’ll be exploring the darker side of Pym’s character, but I can see Rudd playing the super-smart science nerd fairly well.

Joaquin Phoenix meanwhile, if true, has potential to be awesome, anyone tired of his most recent antics need only look back to ‘Gladiator’ to see how awesome he can be as a heavy. This may be potentially interesting casting. Time will tell.
