Star and co-writer of Ant-Man, Paul Rudd, has confirmed that the film will definitely fit into the established Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Concern has arisen amongst fans about the direction the movie would take, ever since director Edgar Wright walked away from the project he’d worked on for years.
Rudd, however, has sought to allay fan’s fears: “Certainly it’s a part of the Marvel Universe. However, it stands on its own. That seemed to be a sticking point or something that was discussed when the history of this project was reported with Edgar, and wanting to make it more of Marvel movie. I think it absolutely fits in.”
Rudd also confirmed that this won’t be the last time viewers see Ant-Man: “I also wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Ant-Man in some other things… [Marvel] has said a few things. I know some things, but I don’t know everything.”
Ant-Man opens on 17 July 2015.
