Paul Rudd - How the Fart Joke Entered the MCU

No Comments
Paul Rudd is Ant-Man

If the Guardians of the Galaxy was Marvel's biggest bet when it arrived on the big screens, Ant-Man will be a lot bigger - it stars a rather unknown superhero, it took more than 10 years to be made, it lost director and writer Edgar Wright in the process, and made one helluva cast.

Yes, Paul Rudd (best known for comedies such as Anchorman, Role Models and The 40 Years Old Virgin) is Ant-Man, Marvel's diminutive superhero. And, if you take a closer look at his movies, you may be wondering if the he is the right man for the role - sure thing, Ant-Man the character is a bit on the funny side, but still"¦

Ant-Man - the scene description

Well, we know that Scott Lang (Ant-Man) is not the regular superhero - as Paul Rudd said, he didn't go hard on himself trying to obtain a perfect physique. And in the trailer (which can be found here) we see him being kicked by Hope Van Dyne on the floor - no, he is no Captain America.

Well, the scene continues further, as a scene description which was leaked online says. The scene is a training montage, with Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne trading punches - well, to be fair, only Hope is the one kicking, while Scott is on the receiving end.

The first punch flies and Scott is sent on the floor, with Hope dancing around him. In pain, the famous Ant-Man tries to stand up, with knees squeaking on the mattress - enter the fart joke: "Sorry, I'm on a very restricted diet!"

Paul Rudd - the writer

As said, Edgar Wright worked on the script of Ant-Man for 10 years - only to see it taken away for further improvements by the studio. And Paul Rudd did adjust the script for a bit.

Now we do believe that Ant-Man can be a very funny character - however, as far as his sense of humor is concerned, fart jokes are a bit too much for us, who have great expectations from the last film of the Phase II.

But what do you think? Is this just a one-time only joke? Or are we to expect that this will be the level of the entire movie?
