Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s ‘Ant-Man’ has been many years in the making. Business finally started to pick up when Marvel Studios officially announced that it would be included in their Phase Three slate of projects and things really started to come together when Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas were cast as Scott Lang and Hank Pym. Since then, a few other names have been rumored to join the film as well like Michael Pena, Evangeline Lilly, and Patrick Wilson, but their involvement has not been confirmed as of yet. Now, another name can be added to that list.
According to The Wrap, ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Non-Stop’ star Corey Stoll is the latest actor to allegedly join the cast of ‘Ant-Man’. The actor, who has also had memorable roles in ‘Law & Order: LA’ as Detective T.J. Jaruszalski and ‘Midnight In Paris’ as Ernest Hemingway, appears to be the latest person to be in talks to join the Scientist Supreme and his size-shifting superhero alter ego. Just like all the other rumored cast members, there are currently no details about who Stoll would be playing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if he were to sign on the dotted line.
While things are still up in the air for Stoll and Marvel, he will be pretty busy as he will soon be seen in Shawn Levy’s upcoming film ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ with Adam Driver, Connie Britton, and Abigail Spencer and Guillermo Del Toro’s FX television series ‘The Strain’, which is based on the filmmaker’s horror novel trilogy that was co-written with Chuck Hogan.
