Sorry, Paul Rudd, Antboy Beat You To The Adorable Superhero Movie Punch [VIDEO]

My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

Seriously, what are the odds Paul Rudd will look this adorable in his Ant-Man movie costume? The synopsis for this directed film is as follows, “Twelve-year-old Pelle leads a dreadfully dull life in his small Danish town, until a bite from a very special ant endows him with incredible powers. With the aid of his nerdy, comic book-obsessed classmate Wilhelm, he adopts the cape and cowl of a new, headline-grabbing superhero: Antboy! But, as Pelle soon discovers, with great power comes great responsibility — and when a villain named Flea begins to terrorize his town, he must mature into a new and extraordinary role. Will he realize in time that sometimes your uniqueness is your greatest strength?” In theaters this weekend!
