Rumor Alert: Edgar Wright looking to Ewan McGregor to don the Ant-Man helmet?

Ewan McGregor as Ant-Man?

Take this with a huge grain of salt since the source is coming from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Facebook fan page, but since people from the industry are admins of the page then there may be some truth to this. Besides, who doesn’t think Ewan McGregor is awesome (I know a lot of my fellow NR writers feel the same way).

According the MCU Facebook page, it seems that the “buzz around Hollywood” is that Marvel Studios and Edgar Wright are pursuing Ewan McGregor to star in Ant-Man. Previously, frequent Edgar Wright collaborator Simon Pegg was rumored for the role, along with Lone Ranger star, Armie Hammer. Simon Pegg squashed those rumors, and well, the Armie Hammer rumor was denied by the director himself.

Seems as if Ewan has been a top choice by fans before. (deviantArtist: skinnyglasses)

With pre-production set to start in October, and filming to start next year we still have some time before anything concrete happens. I do hope Ewan McGregor is truly being looked at though as I can list many reasons why this is an awesome casting choice. What do you guys think? Who would be your choice for Hank Pym?
