Michael Pena offered a role in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man alongside Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd

01.14.2014

ANT-MAN news is pouring in now that both Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas have been confirmed for the roles of Hank Pym and Scott Lang in Edgar Wright's anticipated Marvel movie. With the primary roles cast, attention turns to the supporting players. The first name to be dropped is that of Michael Pena who has been offered an undisclosed role in the film, according to The Wrap.

There is no word on who Pena could be playing, we know from a casting call for the film that Wright is looking for a wide array of ethnicities, genders, and ages to portray comedic roles in the film. With Rudd playing Lang and Wright saying ANT-MAN will feel more like a heist movie than a superhero film, I am going to guess that Pena may be playing part of Lang's crew of criminals that jack the ANT-MAN suit from Pym's laboratory.

Michael Pena is a good actor who has pulled off both dramatic and comedic roles in films like END OF WATCH, CRASH, 30 MINUTES OR LESS, WORLD TRADE CENTER, EASTBOUND AND DOWN, and the upcoming David Ayer WWII film FURY. I can see him playing both styles nicely and he should make for a good support or foil for both Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd.

ANT-MAN hits theaters on July 31, 2015.

Something about Michael Pena that makes me hate him. I just can't watch him and I (monstly) enjoy any movie he's in.

If you haven't seen End of Watch, you need to drop everything right now and rent and/or buy it.

End of Watch is a good film, but I wouldn't call it a "drop everything" movie.

I don't know anything about Ant-Man. Is he ripped? Does Paul Rudd have to get ripped? If so that is going to be crazy!

Seems like Paul Rudd has the constitution to get ripped pretty quickly if he ever felt like it, but just has never had the need or desire to hit the gym in that way.

Michael Pena always provides such excellent support in movies. I don't mean this disparagingly and this is not to say he's a bad leading man but he's terrific in a supporting role every time. He was very funny in American Hustle even though he was the straight man.

Would be another great casting call for Ant Man and the Marvel Universe if he does sign on.

I just hate how Marvel screwed up Justin Hammer. You get one of the best actors in the business and you waste his potential. I really hope he reappears again for a future solo Avenger film or Avengers 2 or 3. Rockwell is too brilliant of an actor to be wasted on in one film.

I think Justin Theroux ruined Justin Hammer, and Marvel is to blame for hiring him. I had doubts about Iron Man 2 before it was even released because of this screenwriter. I just didn't expect much, and I got what I expected. For all of the complaints about Shane Black, his screenplays still surpass anything Justin Theroux can do.
