According to The Wrap, Corey Stoll is in early talks to join the cast of Ant-Man. Unfortunately, there's currently no word on who the House of Cards star will be playing, so for now, we'll just have to speculate! Regardless, he's a great addition to an already impressive cast which includes Paul Rudd (Anchorman), Michael Douglas (The Game), and Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug). Michael Pena (End of Watch) and Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) are also in talks. Ant-Man is set to be released on July 31st, 2015.

Hell yeah, one of the best things in season 1 that was clearly missing in season 2: a character that we can sympathize with. Can't wait to see him on FX's THE STRAIN too with that Christian Slater-looking haircut

Never heard of him but any Ant-Man news is exciting for me.

'In talks' does NOT mean confirmed! Even Lilly hasn't been confirmed yet.

JordanKing - 3/24/2014, 6:16 PM

Evangeline Lily rumors coincided with the theatrical release of Hobbit 2.
I wouldn't still report her name in the mix long after the hype has died down
SuperCat - 3/24/2014, 6:27 PM
Never seen "House of Cards." Heard it's a good show.

TheAbomination - 3/24/2014, 6:42 PM
Lilly playing Jane?
Kyos - 3/24/2014, 6:42 PM
I actually only clicked on this article because I was confused about probably having missed an official announcement of Evengeline Lilly being in this movie. Seems like there was none?!

third3ye - 3/24/2014, 6:44 PM
As long as it ain't Kate Mara.
TheFlash18 - 3/24/2014, 6:44 PM
Well there you go everyone
dio - 3/24/2014, 6:44 PM
That's what I'm thinking Abomination.
SuperCat - 3/24/2014, 6:44 PM
Guess I wouldn't mind her as Wasp.
InfiniteMonkey - 3/24/2014, 6:45 PM
Lilly should play naked. LOL
Kyos - 3/24/2014, 6:45 PM
Huh, surprise update!
MrCBM - 3/24/2014, 6:46 PM
So she's confirmed. I dig it. The best casting so far.
soforizo - 3/24/2014, 6:47 PM

Indeed, she's the best casting news out of this project for me.
Super12 - 3/24/2014, 6:51 PM
I wonder if she's Wasp? She'd be great so I would have no problem with that.
DrDoom - 3/24/2014, 6:51 PM
Should've been MEW . . . .

She's still not in the MCU . . . .

rockerdude22 - 3/24/2014, 6:51 PM
This is really shaping up to be a great movie!

I know some on here are upset about old Pym, but honestly, I think the potential for chemistry between Douglas and Rudd could be gold!
Kyos - 3/24/2014, 6:51 PM
She's the first casting news about this I'm not particularly excited about. Somebody confirm Wilson now as well and we're good! ^^
SmokinIndo - 3/24/2014, 6:52 PM
I love this guy. My favorite actor from House of Cards
whittaflash - 3/24/2014, 6:52 PM
I wanted Rashida Jones.
rockerdude22 - 3/24/2014, 6:52 PM
Oh yeah, forgot about Patrick Wilson! What a great cast so far!
McGee - 3/24/2014, 6:53 PM
That was a very brave choice on Marvel's part. Casting someone with AIDS. Respect.
