Captain America: Civil War star Paul Rudd said he used his nervousness to his advantage on the first day on the film’s set.
Before featuring in a Marvel movie, Paul was a newcomer to MCU and hadn’t met the franchise’s regulars like Chris Evans. He was starstruck by his costars and the nervousness was obvious. But he didn’t shy away, instead, he used that feeling to his advantage.
During an interview, Rudd who made his MCU debut as Scott Lang/Ant-man in the movie said that – “There was a real kind of nervousness about Scott Lang, and I just really kind of played into that because that was part of what I was feeling anyway.”
Paul Rudd was awestruck when he met Chris Evans and the feeling of being with them was overwhelming. Chris Evans and Paul Rudd interviewed each other via a video call. They talked about their experiences during the film Captain America: Civil War.
To this, Paul said – “Do you remember there was like a little makeshift locker room? We’re all kind of changing into things, and I saw the suits on the racks. It felt like being in a locker room of a Super Bowl-winning football team.”
Rudd’s character appeared halfway through the film. As Captain America was assembling his team, Scott was in awe of meeting him. He nervously shook his hand, marveling at his muscles. So Rudd’s feeling of nervousness actually proved to be an advantage in the film.
Since Captain America: Civil War, Rudd, and Evans have also appeared in the blockbuster movie ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The movie wrapped up Evan’s run as Captain America. However, Rudd is expected to return as his comic-book character for the third part of ‘Ant-Man’ movie. It will be directed by Peyton Reed.
