ANT-MAN Villain Update

After JoBlo revealed that Ant-Man would likely be going up against Darren Cross in the Marvel movie, The Wrap's Jeff Sneider now reckons Corey Stoll will play that character, AND, Patrick Wilson will also appear as Cross' cousin, who in the comics becomes the costumed villain Crossfire.

Earlier today we learned that marvel Comics villain Darren Cross would be giving Paul Rudd headaches in the upcoming Ant-Man movie. JoBlo reported the news, but they weren't sure if it'd be Cory Stoll or Patrick Wilson playing the role. Well, it seems The Wrap's Jeff Sneider knows the story:

Keep in mind that Wilson's character may not suit up as Crossfire in this movie, but there's always the possibility that he will in future installments. Some of you seemed a bit disappointed about the choice of villains, but then Ant-Man doesn't exactly have the best rogues gallery to choose from! At least the casting is good. Thoughts?

All the Edgar Wright BS aside, this movie is starting to sound really good.

@MrMartinMarvel

100% agree. Edgar or no, that's a strong cast.

may "not"

What ? He better play younger Pym, but i'm fine with it. Just one thing, Darren will be all like Abomination again since he'll be transformed into a pink monster ?

if it's "maybe not," it looks Wilson will appear in future movies as Crossfire which this movie could be his just origins.

Corey Stoll WITH hair



I'm so used to his House of Cards bald look

It's not the Ant-Man movie I wanted, but I still hope it's good.

But wait, Corey is playing Darren, so why they called him "Dave" in All Hail King ? So in that case, his name would fit one of the antman villains aka Whirlwind (David). And it's interesting if he's the head of Cross, how he's gonna escape ? Not bad move.

If Crossfire is in the MCU, and there is no Hawkeye. Gtfo Marvel.

I like Edgar Wright, but it's his fault Hank Pym is an old man, and a supporting character, so [frick] him!
