As Marvel continues to shore up the cast for its upcoming “Ant-Man” adaptation, headlined by Paul Rudd in the titular role, another big name is rumored to joining the ranks.
As both The Wrap and Deadline report, Patrick Wilson (“A Gifted Man”) is in talks for a unspecified leading role. As it goes with all things Marvel, the role is being shrouded in secrecy for the time being.
In addition to Rudd, Wilson joins the already-cast Michael Douglas (set as scientist Hank Pym) and the rumored Michael Pena and Evangeline Lilly.
When Rudd’s casting was announced in early January, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” star Clark Gregg admitted he wants the leading man to appear on the ABC series. We’re willing to bet he’d enjoy a visit from Wilson, as well.
