Ant Man and the Wasp star Paul Rudd changed his lines in the film

It’s no surprise that Paul Rudd is a key part of the MCU thanks to his longstanding prowess in the comedy world.

But did you know that he’s also a credited writer on both Ant-Man and its upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp?

During a press conference for the movie, director Peyton Reed revealed that Rudd made some adjustment to his character Scott Lang’s lines.

“Paul’s as generous a writer as he is an actor,” Reed said (via ComicBook). “Paul always has the whole picture in mind when he’s writing and acting.”

And Michael Douglas, who portrays Hank Pym in the films, also mentioned how Rudd “gave himself more funny lines”, while Evangeline Lilly added that his best lines “are in the movie, not in the script”.

Rudd, whose character was noticeably missing from Avengers: Infinity War, also shared a little about his writing techniques and professional outlook.

“I try and think of the film as a whole, and I think of every character,” he explained. “This has been a collaborative effort more than anything I’ve worked on, and to think that I actually wrote it would be a gross overstatement.”

Recently, Oscar winner Douglas shared his hopes for an Ant-Man prequel that would feature a young version of Hank Pym.

“I’d like to see him, if there’s magic, we do movie magic in terms of flashbacks. How about getting Hank back to his prime age as the Original Ant-Man and kick some serious ass?” he said.

“I’m ready. I’m geared. I need a good stunt double. You know, I’ll find him, but you can make me look 40 years younger. Let’s do the whole job!”

Ant-Man and the Wasp is released in UK cinemas on August 3 and in the US on July 6.
