After years of fandom hype and speculation, Marvel Comics' much-anticipated film adaptation of Ant-Man finally has a release date. The sure-to-be blockbuster smash is expected to hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2015.
Rumor has it, director Edgar Wright will begin filming as early as January 2013. But with no official cast announcement, fans are left in the dark about who will play the title role.
Nathan's name has long been attached to the upcoming Marvel/Disney project, but will comic-book enthusiasts get their wish? Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the primetime actor will play the big-screen superhero.
At San Diego Comic-Con back in 2010, Nathan told fans that not only is he way too busy to commit to a project of that scale, but Ant-Man wouldn't even be his first choice of superheroes. "I would not pick Ant-Man," he said candidly. "What I've been hoping for is a redo of Greatest American Hero. That I could do."
While we would never condone Nathan's involvement in a project that would conflict with his Castle schedule, we lament his lack of enthusiasm of a role fans would love to see him play. Are you one of those fans? Would you like to see Nathan take on the role of Ant-Man, or is he making the right choice by opting himself out of the running?
