Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ Announces Production, Full Cast List

Ant-Man Cast Production
Marvel Studios

Following the big appearance at Comic-Con 2014, where stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll dished on their superhero heist film alongside director Peyton Reed, Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man‘ officially announced the start of production and its full cast.

While production will eventually branch off into Atlanta, Georgia, Marvel revealed today that ‘Ant-Man’ set up shop to film scenes in San Francisco, California. Prior to the announcement, ‘Ant-Man’ underwent a number of changes, including swapping out Edgar Wright for Reed, along with a few cast members dropping out. With details finally cemented down, however, we now have the official roster.

Though a few of these names were rumored to make appearances, officially announced to feature in ‘Ant-Man’ are Bobby Cannavale (‘Annie,’ ‘Boardwalk Empire‘), Michael Peña (‘End of Watch‘), Abby Ryder Fortson (‘Togetherness’), Judy Greer (‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ ‘Archer‘), David Dastmalchian (‘Prisoners’), Wood Harris (‘The Wire’), John Slattery (‘Mad Men‘), Gregg Turkington (‘The Comedy,’ ‘On Cinema’) and rapper T.I. (also known for roles in ‘American Gangster’ and ‘Takers’).

While their roles are currently up for speculation (except for Slattery’s, which we’re assuming will be Howard Stark, given his appearance in ‘Iron Man 2′), we do know that Rudd portrays Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Douglas is his mentor/original Ant-Man Hank Pym, Lilly assumes the role of Hope van Dyne/Hank Pym’s daughter/Wasp, and Stoll becomes the villain Darren Cross/Yellowjacket. From the press release, here’s the official synopsis:

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’ will hit theaters on July 17, 2015
