Paul Rudd was on hand from the San Francisco set of Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp over the weekend, where the actor was suited up in his new superhero duds (but sans helmet) to answer fan questions in the course of an autism benefit hosted by Jon Stewart called “Night of Too Many Stars.”

HBO released the hilarious video, where Rudd wears the new costume designed for the Ant-Man sequel directed by Peyton Reed, where he obviously expected to answer some burning questions about the upcoming superhero film. However, the “fans” had something else in mind.

See, all of the questions given to Rudd (who complains at one point that no one has read them beforehand), have to do with his famous “slappin’ da bass mon” line from I Love You, Man. But hey, all for a good cause.

At one point, Rudd points out his new costume, saying: “You know, this is pretty cool, not many people have seen the suit, and they change them with every Marvel film. But it’s still kind of in keeping with the first one” before directly segueing to ANOTHER fan question about “slappin da bass.” Check it out:


Ant-Man and the Wasp reunites Rudd with co-stars Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/The Wasp, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michael Peña as Luis and introduces Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath, and Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will open on July 6, 2018.
