In perhaps their most desperate bid to gain positive traction for the upcoming Ant-Man movie, Marvel has released the first official set picture of the film, showing star Paul Rudd living out of a van near the Golden Gate strait.
"How can you not feel bad for him?" asked a Marvel executive as he distributed pictures of Rudd, looking dissheveled and wearing a hoody, to the press. "This is what happens when you focus on all the director turmoil and script re-writes instead of how wonderful all our movies are.
The Marvel executive then gave the assembled press a stern look. "Do you want Paul Rudd to be sad and homeless?"
"No Mr. Marvel Executive," mumbled the ashamed staff.
"Good!" said the Marvel executive. "Now go and write mindless pieces about this new set picture."
Ant-Man, starring a young white dude and an old white dude, will arrive in theatres in July 2015.
