THR has it that Rudd is the frontrunner, and that a push is now on to find Hank Pym's 30-ish year old girlfriend.
Paul Rudd is known for Friends, the 40-Year-Old Virgin, Parks and Recreation, and has a role in the upcoming Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Ant-Man has a newly announced release date of July 31, 2015.
