Did you know that the American actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who turns 40, was not far from playing one of the members of the Avengers?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the shoes of a Marvel superhero? It came close to it! While the American actor, recently seen in the credits of the Netflix film The Chicago Seven, celebrates his fortieth birthday, look back at the moment when he almost slipped under the costume of a member of the Avengers.
In 2013, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, after being mentioned to appear in the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange, once again appeared in the sights of the Marvel team. According to the Variety website, two actors are indeed very well placed to embody the mini-hero Ant-Man on the big screen: Paul Rudd and the one who has just gone behind the camera for the first time with Don Jon.
Was Joseph Gordon-Levitt really seriously considered to slip under the Ant-Man mini-costume? The day after Variety’s announcement, the actor indicated to our microphone that everything was noise about nothing. “There are always rumors”, we thus slipped the actor during the promotion of Don Jon. “I communicate a lot about my future projects, so if you haven’t heard me talking about it, it’s just a rumor. People love to write about it.”
In the end, while Adrien Brody and Ewan McGregor had also been approached for the role, it is finally Paul Rudd, the other name mentioned by Variety, who will be chosen to play Scott Lang in Ant-Man, in front of Peyton Reed’s camera. Joseph Gordon-Levitt will have to wait until 2017 to shine in a fantastic blockbuster with a voice in … Star Wars – The Last Jedi, as you can see below!
