Simon Pegg isn’t Ant-man!

Simon-Pegg ant-man

Actors seem to be in on the Marvel and DC casting craze. Remember when Vin Diesel insinuated that he was going to be The Vision in the next Avengers movie? He eventually ended up becoming Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy. Actor and all-around geek icon Simon Pegg has joined in the fun by tweeting a few misleading pics himself.

Pegg’s explanation totally checks out:

He then got back to tweeting and explained himself.

And despite all this there are those who are convinced that the actor is Ant-Man. I don’t blame them. It’s easy to see Simon Pegg as Scott Lang or even Hank Pym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It seems crazy that they wouldn’t at least consider it.
