Paul Rudd on Captain America Civil War set: “I felt like I was 10 years old”

Rudd admitted to being completely star struck on set

Paul Rudd makes a cameo in the recently released Captain America: Civil War but that didn’t stop him feeling a little star struck on set.

Rudd starred in 2015’s Ant-Man but even with his own character in the Marvel Universe, Rudd says that being on the set of Captain America: Civil War was something else entirely.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Rudd said: “We shot Ant-Man – but I was alone in a bubble. All of a sudden I’m standing around seeing Robert Downey Jr in the Iron Man suit, and seeing Chris Evans.


“They’re all there. I’ve seen the movies. I felt like I was 10 years old. It was crazy. It was pretty cool!” Ant-Man enters Captain America: Civil War as thief-turned-hero Scott Lang for Civil War’s battle between Marvel’s heroes over the safety of humanity.

Captain America actor Chris Evans has said that he does not want to pass on the superhero’s shield just yet.

“Without these movies, I wouldn’t be directing,” he told Variety in 2014. “They gave me enough overseas recognition to greenlight a movie. And if I’m speaking extremely candidly, it’s going to continue to do that for as long as the Marvel contract runs.”

However, the star now appears to have changed his mind. In an interview during Civil War’s press junket, Evans said that he would be willing to reprise the role in the future.

“It is so funny thinking about how fast time has moved. We started this in 2010, and six years is gone in the blink of an eye. In the beginning it was so terrifying, and now you’re almost scared… I’m scared to walk away,” he told Collider.

Captain America: Civil War is out now in the UK and opens on May 6 in the US. You can see Rudd’s interview below.
