It's a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a superhero suit, must have rock hard abs. It's as simple as that.

So, how did adorable everyman and Marvel superhero newb Paul Rudd react to this universal truth? It was NBD for the Ant-Man.

"I had seen the Marvel movies and realized that was thew case in most of them... all of them?" Rudd said during a press day to promote the upcoming Marvel movie. Yes, Rudd. The answer is yes. All of Marvel's mightiest have taken it all off for the camera. And now we can add Scott Lang to the sexy af list.

"Here's the thing: I'm playing a superhero," he said. "You gotta feel the part. For my own edification, for my own ability, my own understanding of how I wanted to play this guy and feel like I could do it. I knew I was going to be held accountable."

"It's a great motivator for going to the gym," Rudd added. Hey, you don't get bulging biceps like those without a little hard work.

"Ant-Man" hits theaters on July 17.
