The actors will reportedly battle until only one is left standing in order to play Ant-Man in the upcoming Edgar Wright film.
It's a commonly accepted fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the preferred actor to portray any superhero in any movie ever, but Clueless star Paul Rudd is reportedly looking to challenge the status quo. Variety reports that Rudd and Gordon-Levitt are frontrunners to play Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel Phase 2.5 movie by Edgar Wright, and there's only one way to settle it: with a fight to the death.
"I'm going to rip out Joseph Gordon-Levitt's heart and eat it in front of him so the last thing he sees before the end of his existence is my bloody, grinning face devouring his vital organs," explained Rudd in a candid interview with The Outhouse. "He'll regret going up against me in a superhero movie casting."
"I mean, for approximately 30 seconds," Rudd added. "Then he'll be dead."
Gordon-Levitt, or JGL as his friends call him, isn't intimidated.
"Paul Rudd can try, but I'll gut that motherfucker," Gordon-Levitt told us in response to Rudd's threats. "I'll rip his fucking head off, you know? With my bare hands."
"These are deadly fucking weapons," pointed out Gordon-Levitt as he brandished his fists. "I'll end him. I'll fucking end him."
Variety says that the pair will meet with Marvel execs to discuss the casting and death match, and that a third actor could possibly enter the fray, though it's unlikely. Rudd and Gordon-Levitt promised to team up to tear any potential challengers to pieces before settling the matter amongst themselves, man to man.
