When Paul Rudd made his Marvel debut in Ant-Man last summer, it proved that moving forward, charismatic and charming actors like him will continue to help the Marvel Universe thrive. Recently, Rudd screened Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War, and being the comedy legend that he is, he took his review of the highly anticipated film to another level. The Russo Brothers who are the dynamic directing duo for Civil War, played a trick on their Facebook fans by telling them that Chris Evans was sitting inside of their editing studio screening Captain America: Civil War for the very first time. However, when they actually enter the room, viewers discover that instead of Evans, the Russos are greeted by Paul Rudd wearing a paper Captain America mask, and holding Captain’s iconic vibranium shield.
Check out the video for yourself below:
Though Rudd (as Evans) waxed poetic about the film in general, he said that his favorite part about the entire film is Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. Obviously, this isn’t the best joke Rudd has ever played, but we’ll take it! Though the video doesn’t exactly reveal any spoilers about the upcoming film, it was still a delight to watch.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6th!
