Paul Rudd Shares His Pick for the Marvel Superhero With the 'Lamest Powers'

The 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania' star gets candid on 'Watch What Happens Live.'

He might get some flack for playing superhero Ant-Man, but Paul Rudd has some clear thoughts about other characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

During Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the 53-year-old actor played a round of "Plead the Fifth," where host Cohen tried to get him to shade his co-stars.

"Which of the Marvel superheroes has the lamest powers... and is it Hawkeye?" Cohen quipped, referencing Jeremy Renner's arrow-slinging vigilante.

Rudd laughed at the question before agreeing, saying, "Yeah, it's totally [Hawkeye]. I mean, he shoots arrows, come on. And I thought talking to ants was weird."

Despite the Marvel confession, Rudd has nothing but love for Renner. Rudd recently spoke with ET about Renner recovering from a critical snowplow accident last month.

"He's doing alright. He's doing well," Rudd said, sharing he'd talked to the Hawkeye star the day before the interview. "He's the best guy and he's awesome."

As ET previously reported, Renner was crushed by a snowcat near his home in the Mt. Rose Highway area of Reno, Nevada, in January. At the time, Renner was towing his nephew’s vehicle after it got stuck in the snow when the snowcat began to move. In the moment, Renner tried to prevent his nephew from being hurt but ended up getting pulled underneath it. 

As a result, Renner suffered life-threatening injuries and had to undergo emergency surgery. The actor was in the hospital for 14 days. Renner has been home since Jan. 21, and is still recovering from 30-plus broken bones and undergoing physical therapy.
