Paul Rudd as Ant-Man: First Look!

by at .

Paul Rudd takes on the role of Ant-Man in the new Marvel movie by that name, though in this first look at the actor in character, he's got a ways to go.

Before looking the part of a superhero, that is.

Check out this photo of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man in San Francisco, California, with the Golden Gate Bridge and a nondescript van in the background:

Paul Rudd as Ant-Man

Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man hits theaters next July. In it, Rudd plays a hoodie-clad, unshaven Scott Lang - before he makes a key acquaintance, that is.

Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), a genius scientist, has found a way for a man to shrink down to the size of an insect but also increase his strength.

Thus, Ant-Man. His mission? Plan an ambitious heist that will save the world and stymie Pym's rivals who want to hijack the technology for nefarious uses.

No pressure.

Ant-Man also stars Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Judy Greer and Corey Stoll. Excited to see Rudd take on this oversized (sorry) role?
