Watch: Chris Evans Wants to Know...How 'Big' is Ant-Man?

Friday July 3, 2020

Chris Evans and Paul Rudd have been moonlighting from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to do projects on streaming programs. But when things turned to a third "Ant-Man" film, things got personal.

"On the Apple TV Plus limited series 'Defending Jacob,' Evans inhabits the guilt and fear of a suburban district attorney who will stop at nothing to save his teenage son from what he believes to be a wrongful murder charge. And Rudd goes much bigger than Ant-Man in Netflix's 'Living With Yourself,' playing both a dour copywriter and his charming clone," writes Variety in a conversation between the two actors published last week as part of their the publication's Actors on Actors series.

Both talk about their projects
(watch and/or read the interview here). But what has caught media attention is an exchange at its tail end, when Evans inquired about a third "Ant Man" movie. Rudd replied: "I'm not going to be able to say anything, Chris. You know the world."

"I might as well ask you what your paychecks are. I don't know," Evans said. "Paul, what's your penis size?"

Unflustered, Rudd responded: "It's even bigger than my paycheck. Put in your own Ant-Man joke there."
