MCU M.O.D.O.K.: Rudd’s Ant Man 3 Script To Have Introduced Big-Headed Villian

With recent news dropping that Rick and Morty writer Jeff Loveness would be taking over script duties for Ant-Man 3, an interesting rumor has surfaced about star Paul Rudd’s previous pass on the screenplay.

Rudd, who had been heavily involved with the story process on the first two Ant-Man films (and included in the screenwriting credits for both) was said to be introducing one of Marvel’s most shithouse-crazy baddies, M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing).

M.O.D.O.K. originally started appearing in Marvel comics back in 1967: George Tarleton, a technician for nefarious arms company A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics, since we’re being all acronymical today) becomes a victim of the organization’s experimental mutagenic technology, altering his body into a swollen, hyper-cephalic/super-intelligent head that’s too big for his body to support, requiring a (very villainous) floating chair to move about.
He eventually rebels against his masters and gains control over the entire A.I.M. org, becoming mostly an arch-nemesis for Captain America (in the comics).
The M.O.D.O.K. character is also slated to get his own adult-oriented animated comedy web-series on Hulu, created by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt.

It’s not yet known what direction Loveness will take with the story, it seems that his bizarro humor/weird-science cred from Rick and Morty would be a perfect fit for a character/concept like M.O.D.O.K.

Director Peyton Reed will be returning for his third Ant-Man outing, and (of course) no shoot-date has been announced yet amid the current pandemic.
