Marvel Studios celebrated the first day of principal photography on Ant-Man by releasing the first official still from the film featuring star Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, at least when he’s not donning his superhero digs.
Ant-Man shooting began Monday in San Francisco as evidenced by Rudd’s Scott Lang character standing near the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. The majority of the shoot will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, but director Peyton Reed is shooting some of the film on-location in California.
Lang will be a thief in the film and this image depicts Rudd as a guy who’s possibly casing out a future heist. He’s been in a brawl recently with bandages on his face, though we don’t know if that was a fight as Lang or a fight as Ant-Man. My guess would be the former.
Ant-Man is less than a year away from its July 17, 2015 release date. I would expect the first footage or teaser trailer to go public early next year.
