MARVEL ONE-SHOT Actor Matt Gerald Joins ANT-MAN

Avatar's Matt Gerald, the latest actor to join Marvel's Ant-Man, could be playing a villainous character he already established in the Iron Man 3 follow-up short All Hail the King. Check it out after the jump!

Now that filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is in full swing across the globe, Marvel Studios is gearing up for production next month on its "Phase Three" launcher, Ant-Man, in Atlanta, Georgia. According to the ever-reliable Deadline, the latest name attached to the Edgar Wright-directed adaptation is Matt GeraldBest known for his roles in Avatar, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Showtime's Dexter, the actor will apparently play "one of the bad guys," but his character may be already established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Matt Gerald played 'White Power Dave' opposite Sir Ben Kingsley in the Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King, which featured on Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray. However, the casting report fails to acknowledge Gerald's minor role in the short film. Therefore, it is unknown if he will play the same character in Ant-Man. Anyhow, Matt Gerald joins an ever-growing cast that so far includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Corey Stoll, with Patrick Wilson and Michael Douglas. Directed by Edgar Wright from his screenplay, which he co-wrote with Joe Cornish, Ant-Man is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015. What do you think?
