SAN FRANCISCO — The next member of Marvel Comics’ comic book characters to get his
own movie will spend at least part of it in San Francisco as principal photography for “Ant-Man” begins Tuesday in the city, Marvel Studios officials announced.

“Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas and is set for release on July 17, 2015. Rudd will play the title character, who can shrink his size but increase his strength using a specially engineered suit, while Douglas will play his mentor.

A photo of Rudd standing in front of a fog-shrouded Golden Gate Bridge was released Tuesday on Marvel’s Twitter feed.

Marvel did not say how long the production will be shooting in San Francisco, but said that the movie will also be filmed in Atlanta.

Ant-Man will be the next character to join the “Marvel Cinematic Universe,” a world of characters that cross over in each other’s films and includes members of the Avengers like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and most recently the Guardians of the Galaxy.
