David Beckham is… Ant Man!

Rumours of a movie based on Marvel’s Ant Man have been circulating for years, but they took a hilarious new twist this weekend.

Genre fan Michael Gage decided the placement of an ad for David Beckham’s new scent in the June edition of FHM opposite a full page feature on a giant South American ant (the scary-looking Gigantiops Destructor, since you asked) could only be a subliminal tip off that the former ManU soccer star, now living in Hollywood, was to play Ant Man, and proved it with this quick piece of photoshop.

A gem, but what other football stars might be in line to play superheroes?

If Ed Norton drops out of the new Hulk movie, do you think Wayne Rooney would be up for the role?
