Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd are the frontrunners to play “Ant-Man” in director Edgar Wright’s long-awaited superhero film of the same name, according to Variety.

Wright, who has been developing for the film for a number of years, seems intent on courting an actor for the role of the Avenger – best known as Henry Pym, a scientist who invents a serum which he can use to shrink to different sizes – that’s more of an “every man”, rather than your characteristically palpable action star.

Though Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn’t unfamiliar to comic book terrain, this would be the first time the “Dark Knight Rises” co-star has played the central superhero of the piece. Rudd, better known for his comedy work, would be making his superhero debut in the film.

“Ant-Man” is due July 31, 2015.
