Is there anyone more likeable than Paul Rudd? Of course not. The heartthrob turned comedy legend has become one of the most welcome additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent years, and one of the most intriguing elements of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Rudd recently screened Civil War under the guise of co-star Chris Evans, and the result is something as delightfully funny as one would expect. Check it out below to see for yourself.
In a video released on the Russo Brothers’ Facebook page, the directing duo start by addressing the camera and telling the viewers that Chris Evans is currently sitting inside of their editing studio screening Captain America: Civil War for the very first time. They play the whole thing incredibly straight, explaining that this is one of the most stressful aspects of being a filmmaker. Eventually they enter the room to ask Evans how he enjoyed the film, but instead of Chris Evans they are greeted by none other than Paul Rudd wearing a paper Captain America mask and holding the iconic vibranium shield. Evans/Rudd explains that he adores everything about Civil War, from the compelling characters, to the bombastic action sequences, but his absolute favorite element of the film comes in the form of Paul Rudd’s take on Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man.
Is it stupid? Yes. Do we care? Not at all. If nothing else, this quick video serves as a reminder of how important a guy like Paul Rudd will be for the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward. A day will come when an actor like Robert Downey Jr. will have to step away from his now iconic role at Tony Stark. As long as someone as charismatic as Rudd remains firmly entrenched in the action, we will never be able to get enough of these characters. It’s not just about being a muscle bound badass; a superhero needs to display humanity and charm, which Paul Rudd seems to pull off effortlessly.
If you haven’t checked out the video of Paul Rudd and the Russo Brothers yet, do yourself a favor and give it a watch. For all of the grim darkness that the Captain America: Civil War trailers have promised, it looks as though the process of making the film was nothing if not fun. Be sure to catch the film when it hits theaters later this year on May 6th. Stay tuned for more details!
