LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Marvel is considering Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Paul Rudd to play the titular superhero in British filmmaker Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man," Variety reported.

The entertainment industry trade newspaper said there's still a remote possibility another actor could be cast in the role, but right now Gordon-Levitt and Rudd are the front-runners.

The comic-book adaptation is set for theatrical release July 31, 2015.

Wright's previous films include "Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz" and "The World's End."
