Bobby Cannavale, John Slattery, And More Join Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’


Today was a big day for fans of the Marvel cinematic universe. Not only did production [finally] begin on the Paul Rudd led, Edgar Wright-less Ant-Man, but the studio comic fans believe can do no wrong also announced a slew of big time cast additions.

According to a press release distributed several hours after the initial announcement regarding the start of Ant-Man‘s production, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery have also joined the cast of the upcoming Peyton Reed directed film. In addition, it confirmed earlier reports that Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian are also on board. All roles are being kept under wraps for the time being, but our fingers are crossed that Cannavale landed something that gives Marvel a reason to bring him back over and over again.

Slattery played Howard Stark in Iron Man 2, so there are rumors he will reprise the role for this film. That makes sense to an extent, but considering the fact the upcoming Agent Carter television show will also have a Howard Stark it’s possible that actor will make a leap to the big screen. If true, Slattery could step into a new role in the universe, which admittedly feels a bit unlikely.

The official synopsis for Ant-Man reads:

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.

Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015.
