Ant-Man Costume Altered Due to His Physique. It’s no surprise that for every superhero film, the costume must always fit or it must be changed. Even for the upcoming Ant-Man film, as co-star Michael Douglas told MTV News that the costume had to be altered due to Paul Rudd’s muscles.

Michael Douglas told the outlet that Paul Rudd has been spending so much time at the gym to prepare for his role as Ant-Man. “Paul Rudd is ripped,” Douglas explained. “He’s been training and working out for this picture for a long time. He was so cut, that they had to soften his costume up, with all the built-in six-packs and all of that.”

Would that also mean that we get to see Douglas wearing the costume as well? Unfortunately, the actor said he wouldn’t be appearing as the first Ant-Man in the film, passing on the crime fighting to Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang character. “My costume will be hung up and Paul will be wearing it in good form.”
