It’s no secret that Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) starts off the movie ‘Ant-Man’ as a criminal, but after running afoul of scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his size-changing technology, he turns over a new leaf and dedicates himself to more altruistic endeavors.

But a man usually can’t accomplish his goals– good or evil– alone and in the movie, Lang is assisted by a ragtag (yet remarkably clean cut) group of hoods, who most likely will follow their leader Lang’s example and use their dishonest skill sets for good before the end credits roll.

Now thanks to some new photos released by Marvel, you can get familiar with Lang’s gang:

Lang is assisted by four unsavory types, each of whom will no doubt have a specialty.  Among those assisting the shrinking super hero is David Dastmalchian (on the far right in the top photo, and the left in the second) as Kurt.

In addition, the team includes:

Michael Pena as Luis…

Rapper T.I. as Dave…

And Bobby Cannavale as Paxton.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait and see how these four crooks will influence Lang and the film’s storyline.  Most of these actors aren’t huge names, but are quite recognizable from other projects so expect them to be more than just one-note extras.

We still have almost a month to go until we know for sure how these four will factor into ‘Ant-Man,’ but if you can’t wait to see Rudd’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hopefully these pics will help tide you over for a bit.  Be sure and check back for more updates as they become available!

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
