It’s being reported by The Wrap that Michael Pena is in talks to join Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. This comes hot on the heels of Paul Rudd being cast as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. It’s not currently known what role Pena is up for at this point, but expect to hear more on this as it becomes available.
As for Pena, he has appeared in the likes of End of Watch, American Hustle, Shooter, Eastbound & Down and Million Dollar Baby. Personally, I’m a big fan of the dude, and especially loved him in End of Watch, not to mention busting out his comedic chops in Eastbound & Down. That show can do no wrong by me, though.
Ant-Man is set to kick off Marvel’s Phase Three of films on 31st July, 2015.
