Where Can You Watch 'Ant-Man' Online? There's Plenty Of Paul Rudd To Tide You Over Until The Movie's Available To Stream

Ant-Man surprised a lot of people when it hit theaters in July. Not because it was a Marvel movie about a hero not many people had heard of, but because it was actually good. Despite having some behind-the-scenes drama, the Paul Rudd-starring superhero film managed to become a hit both critically and financially. In fact, Ant-Man was so much fun, fans want to watch it again. Right now. From the comfort of their own home. So, where can you watch Ant-Man online?

Unfortunately, Ant-Man isn't available yet for streaming (it's still pulling in decent money in theaters, actually). The movie is available for pre-order at a number of streaming outlets like Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu, but no date has been given yet as to when the actual movie will arrive. Marvel just announced that Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was released in theaters about two months before Ant-Man, will be digitally released on Sept. 8. Following this logic, you can expect Ant-Man to be online sometime in November, just in time for the holidays. As for Netflix, it will probably be over a year until Ant-Man makes his way onto the ubiquitous streaming service; that's how long the first Avengers took, anyway. So what are fans supposed to do in the meantime?

A big reason Ant-Man was so good was because of Paul Rudd. Rudd was his usual funny and charming self in the movie, and his casting helped save what could have been a disaster. Paul Rudd is awesome in everything he's in, and luckily there are plenty of places to see him online to pass the time until Ant-Man arrives.
