We've long established how much of a nice guy Paul Rudd actually is and the fact that the Marvel actor is beloved by his peers, co-workers, and fans pretty much proves that. It also can't be denied that Ant-Man is one of the more overlooked and underappreciated characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but the actor's recent act of kindness instantly catapults Scott Lang into the MCU's top-tier hero list.

Rudd is making headlines after reaching out to a young boy named Brody Ridder who recently went viral after no one from his class signed his yearbook. Turns out, 12-year-old Brody also happens to be a victim of bullying in their school and her mother Cassandra took to social media to express her dismay.

The heartwrenching post apparently caught the attention of the Ant-Man and the Wasp star and he wasted no time showing his appreciation for the kid. Rudd actually befriended the kid the two would exchange messages from time to time. He even sent him an Ant-Man helmet and called Brody his favorite superhero. Now, that's what heroes do!

Meanwhile, the stakes couldn't get any higher as Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne are set to face their biggest challenge yet with the grand arrival of Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is currently slated for release on February 17, 2023.
