In spite of having been first attracted to the property by the prospect of working with ousted director Edgar Wright, Ant-Man star Paul Rudd has nothing but nice things to say about the people he's worked with at Marvel.
Which is good, because Rudd is a rare breed of Marvel actor: somebody who was already pretty famous and busy before taking on his Marvel role, as opposed to many of the actors whose profiles were significantly increased by taking on a part with the Avengers Initiative.
“It’s been very easy,” Rudd told ComingSoon.net. “Marvel’s been great, as far as if I have something else and they’ll work around it. It’s not like I’m working on a series which might be a little trickier as far as schedule. I worked on Civil War and I didn’t really work on it for very long, but as far as Ant-Man 2, I already know when that’s going to go, so you just kind of plan accordingly. If anything comes along that I can film before or after and it works out time-wise and it makes sense, Marvel’s been supportive.”
That's how he was able to make Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and some other small projects along the way, apparently.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is due in theaters on July 6, 2018 and so far Rudd has at least two non-Marvel projects lined up between now and then.
