Patrick Wilson confirms "important" role in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man

Mar. 10, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

At the end of last month we learned Patrick Wilson was close to joining ANT-MAN, and the actor has now confirmed he has a role in Edgar Wright's upcoming film. Wilson obviously couldn't reveal much about ANT-MAN when he spoke with Screen Rant, however he does say his role is an "important" one, and he has read the script.

Have you tried on a costume?
Wilson: No.

Good or Evil?
Wilson: Can’t tell you.

You’re in the movie though, right?
Wilson: Yeah.

Big role or small role?
Wilson: Important.

Have you read the script?
Wilson: Yes.

When we first discovered the possibility of Patrick Wilson being cast, several of you speculated he might be playing a young Hank Pym in the film. I think there's a very good chance that's who his character will end up being, but really we have no clue what his role will be in ANT-MAN. Patrick Wilson is a great actor, so I'm sure he'll be fantastic as usual, but I'm quite curious to know what his part will be in Edgar Wright's movie.

ANT-MAN starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas will be released on July 17th, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Who do you think Patrick Wilson might be playing in ANT-MAN, besides possibly a young Hank Pym?

He's doing mo-cap for all the ants. He's gone full method on this and has been lugging around a 30ft long leaf for several months.

Patrick Wilson is excellent. It's just cool that he's involved in the project at all.

Young Hank Pym

That's what I'm thinking, as well as mostly everyone else. It would mean we could have two Ant-Men existing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we could easily have Wilson starring in his own movie.

Is the Amy chane Rudd is playing young Douglas and Wilson could be final future Antman?

Just saying i'd be more stoked on that and Rudd does look like a young Douglas more so than Wilson.

Doc Strange

I could see him as Strange (I guess) or a supporting character but not young Hank Pym. Don't see them cutting into Douglas' screentime like that. They could just de-age him ala X-Men: The Last Stand.

I think he's a little too clean-cut to be Doctor Strange, so I'm leaning towards young Hank Pym.

It would be fantastic if ended up being Doctor Strange. Even though it's probably not, I still hope so.

I don't see him as Dr. Strange. Someone like Viggo Mortensen would be a lot better in that role.

That role is going towards either Johnny Depp (in talks to play someone in the Marvel Universe) or someone whos name is slipping my mind currently...

We already know Michael Douglas is Hank Pym

Unless Patrick Wilson is a flashback young Hank (don't see this happening) he will be the badguy or one of Paul Rudds friends.
