Patrick Wilson Confirms ANT-MAN Reports; Has 'Important' Role

Chatting with Screen Rant, Patrick Wilson vaguely lets on a few Ant-Man tidbits, but ultimately confirms his involvement with the Edgar Wright-helmed Marvel film. Hit the jump to hear what he has to say.

"No," Wilson replied when asked if he'd tried on a costume. Asked whether he'll play a hero or villain, "Can't tell you." Confirming he's in the movie, Wilson added that he has an "important role". Wilson was then asked if he'd learned anything from Watchmen, in which he played Nite Owl, to take into Ant-Man. "No, totally different world. I love Watchmen, I love Zack I love the process of that, I'm so happy with that," he replied. When asked if he'd read a script, Wilson simply answered "Yes."

Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, with Michael Pena, Clifton Collins Jr. and Evangeline Lilly for rumored roles. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in May, while the film releases on July 17, 2015.

Ramiel - 3/8/2014, 2:31 PM

Enphlieuwince - 3/8/2014, 2:34 PM
He should be young Pym...

I hope he is young Pym...

He better be young Pym.

Hey jack, how is that Oscar doing?

BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:39 PM
Yeah, feels kind of bad, huh.... I made it just for you. At least you won a Golden Globe.
BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:40 PM

BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:41 PM
Don't worry. Maybe in 50 years, they will give an "Honorary" Oscar.
Rhinoman - 3/8/2014, 2:44 PM
Must know villain for this film.
-The Villian comes out of the technology

Maybve Ghost, Crossfire, etc
BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:44 PM
Better than Leo after the oscars...

SonGoku - 3/8/2014, 2:47 PM
I always thought Wilson would make a great Professor Zoom, but I guess that ship has sailed now. I hope he's playing 60's Pym though, he'd be great.
BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:47 PM
And a golden globe...

Plus he is mostly tv. Poor Leo, just avoiding the facts. Sigh.
Fanmar16 - 3/8/2014, 2:57 PM
is an obvious villain
DEVLIN712 - 3/8/2014, 2:58 PM
I really hope that he's the villain
BatmanHeisenberg - 3/8/2014, 2:58 PM
I was just saying that he has a GG. Leo's GG is okay I guess, but so is cranstons. I love Leo, I just was giving you shit.
SuperCat - 3/8/2014, 3:00 PM
Got a feeling he may be a villain.
MrCBM56 - 3/8/2014, 3:06 PM
Awesome casting. Great actor.
MrSotoMan - 3/8/2014, 3:11 PM
He's the villain.
RetroFit - 3/8/2014, 3:13 PM
Better be 60s Hank Pym!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/8/2014, 3:14 PM
Def Pym. He has that nerdy voice about him, like he did in Watchmen.
RetroFit - 3/8/2014, 3:14 PM
If the villain comes out of the technology, then my guess is Klaw. Could he be Ulysses Klaw?
WeddingTux - 3/8/2014, 3:15 PM
he's George Tarleton aka MODOK!!!!!!
Minato - 3/8/2014, 3:15 PM
WeddingTux - 3/8/2014, 3:16 PM
1960'S Hank Pym will be played by Rafe Spall ...I thought that was confirmed already. if not? oops..
Kurne - 3/8/2014, 3:17 PM
Yeah, young Pym it is. He was asked if he has a big role or small role and he said important. I really hope flashbacks take place throughout the movie, not just opening credits/Watchmen-style.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/8/2014, 3:17 PM
60s Pym. He's gotta be young Pym. It's too obvious
Kurne - 3/8/2014, 3:19 PM

That was scooped up (here) last year. Possible, but we haven't heard anything from other sites.
NorseGod - 3/8/2014, 3:25 PM
young pym seems about right. He reminds me of a young kirk douglas.
DCMarvelFreshman - 3/8/2014, 3:25 PM
@Kurne Sent this to the main, great find!
blackandyellow - 3/8/2014, 3:27 PM
I think Wilson and Chris Evans are the only two actors to star in a DC and Marvel movie now.
DaVinci31 - 3/8/2014, 3:27 PM
blackandyellow - 3/8/2014, 3:27 PM
I think he's Egghead.
MrSotoMan - 3/8/2014, 3:28 PM
It's not 60's Pym guys, I'm telling you, he really seems like he is playing a villain, at least the villain of Scott Lang.

If his role is important, than 60's Pym ISN'T IMPORTANT. Just saying. His role is "IMPORTANT" meaning if he is 60's Pym that would mean the events that happen in the 60's are important, but not meaning that he is a villain.

Again, he seemed pretty straight forward and vague about his answers, to me, it seems like he is playing a villain, not Pym. I know that's what we all pray to god to see, but something like that I think would of been announced to us, hell who knows we might not even see 60's Pym.

How did this Ant-Man thread turn into a Leo thread??

This is a Marvel Film thread people. You need to be talking about comedy, puns and sight gags.
And it needs to be toddler friendly. Young kids could wander in here after checking John Cena's page.

And Patrick Wilson is too good to be in a Marvel film.
DEVLIN712 - 3/8/2014, 3:36 PM
This GIF needs to be shared. I'm gonna leave it here
blackandyellow - 3/8/2014, 3:40 PM
The Dicaprio shit is getting old.

RamonSuarez - 3/8/2014, 3:45 PM
Why are people saying that Wilson is too old to be Pym?

A few years ago he was the fanboy favorite for the part.
Kyos - 3/8/2014, 3:46 PM
This is becoming an extremely interesting cast...! :)
