Rudd appeared to be in conversation with a local on the Ant-Man set, chatting on the corner of a busy intersection. Rudd looked clean cut in jeans, a button-down under a surplus jacket and black boots. The establishment behind him on the corner shows a shadier side of the California city, boasting of topless dancers.
Just as filming for Ant-Man commenced earlier this week, Marvel released the first image of Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man. In the picture, Rudd appears as hardened thief Lang – not the Ant-Man hero he is to become. Standing in front of a beat up van with a fog-covered golden gate bridge in the background, an unshaven Rudd is wearing a hoodie over his head and carrying a suspicious black bag.
Ant-Man was originally set to begin filming earlier this summer, but production had to be pushed back when director Edgar Wright exited the project and was eventually replaced by Peyton Reed.
Joining Rudd in the Ant-Man cast are popular TV actors Corey Stoll (House of Cards, The Strain), Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and John Slattery (Mad Men). While Stoll and Lilly are playing characters new to the Marvel movie universe, Slattery is reprising his role as Iron Man’s father Howard Stark.
Ant-Man is slated to hit theaters July 17.
