Actor Paul Rudd, who will be playing the future Avenger member Ant-Man AKA Scott Lang, has recently been vacationing in Cabo, Mexico. Pictures have surfaced of the talent playing football on the beach, and what we see came as a surprise. He now sports a muscular physique that, despite having no comparison to Chris Evans' body, is a drastic change from what he looked like merely a few months ago.
With the need to sport a superhero-esque appeal, it seems as though Rudd has been hard at work behind the scenes with a workout routine that has obviously served him well to prep to be a Marvel character. Without it, how could one consider him a reasonable threat on the Avengers team alongside Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, or Captain America?
The 45-year-old actor is not to be cast aside as a minor character. Being the fifth Avenger to get a solo movie, he holds a lead ahead of heroes who share movies such as Hawkeye or soon-to-be Quicksilver and the Vision. Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp (who has also been suggested to play Avenger [Doctor Strange](movie:559685)) in their age still have a huge teen girl fanbase, which could quite possibly follow Rudd after the film's release.

Evangeline Lily is rumored to play Rudd's love interest, and now things are beginning to look more and more like the super couples we're used to from Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and the Asgardian Thor.
[Ant-Man](movie:9048) will begin filming next month in Atlanta, Georgia and will hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
