The latest Marvel hero to make it to the big screen may not be quite as well-known as Iron Man, as massive as The Hulk or as beautifully bequiffed as Thor and his luscious locks, but Ant-Man is one small hero who packs a mighty big punch.

Y'know, just like President Michael D. Higgins.

Ant-Man is swarming its way into Irish cinemas on 17 July and the film's tiny, titular hero is played by Paul Rudd, a man who JOE.ie Editor, Paddy McKenna, understandably fell head-over-hero-heels in love with when the pair met recently.

You've already read our 20 reasons why Paul Rudd is a king amongst men, now watch as Paddy and Paul talk size, call each other rude, Irish names, and JOE.ie presents the awesome actor with his very own authentic* Certificate of Irishness.

As the man says himself, "37% of the time, makes you Irish every time."

We're in love with Paul Rudd.

It's as simple as that. Enjoy...
