"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. »
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones certainly looked like a happily married couple when they were spotted dining together earlier this week at Nyy Steak in Manhattan. The pair - who took a break to work on and evaluate their marriage in August, but have been taking steps toward reconciling - were seen holding hands as they arrived for a dinner meeting with a business associate on Tuesday. Douglas, 69, introduced Zeta-Jones, 44, as his wife, a source tells People, and he was overheard chatting about his upcoming movie projects and said that he was excited about his future. "He seemed in really good spirits, »

The series wound up exactly as we expected it to – and had yet more of the storyline flaws that have marred it throughout. So what are the prospects for season three?

Didn't see that coming, did you? Of course you did. The milksop president was always going down, especially after the makeup artists moved in a couple of episodes ago and started painting Garrett Walker's tired face 50 shades of grey and his eyes crying-time red. No wonder his approval rating was eight per cent. "China won't return my calls," the leader of the free world whined just before he got his comeuppance. Pathetic.
And really House of Cards had nowhere to go but to put Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood in the Oval Office. There he was in the last scene, kicking away the previous incumbent's chair, pounding his fist on the desk with »

As Marvel continues to build up excitement for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie – a big budget superhero movie starring little-known Marvel characters – they’re gearing up to make their next little-known big budget movie: Ant-Man.
Having gotten a great director in Edgar Wright and an increasingly interesting cast which includes Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym/Ant-Man, they’ve continued to add big name actors to the movie with Patrick Wilson being the latest star to be cast.
Wilson has superhero movie experience, having previously starred in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen as Nite Owl, and looks to build on that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or does he? Will he be an ongoing hero or a one-movie villain like Guy Pearce in Iron Man 3? So far, there’s been no word on who Wilson will be playing but, given the number of characters in the Marvel U, »

The 91-year-old added that Douglas and the 'Side Effects' star have always been very affectionate and easy with each other.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones divorce update 2014 - One family member says there will be no split and claims Michael and Catherine's marriage woes are over. The 69-year-old actors' mother Diana Douglas has opened up about her son's brief separation from his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and says the pair are now firmly back together and over their marriage woes. She said: ''They are together. I knew they would work it out. They're both gentle people, not hysterical. They're always very affectionate and easy with each other. I figured the more everybody stayed out of it the better.'' 'Red 2' actress Catherine's admission that she suffers from bipolar disorder - which has led to her spending time in rehab fighting depression - was said to be one of the reasons for the couple's brief separation, and Diana admits that she thinks her son must have found it difficult to support his wife. »
Lying somewhat quietly between two of David Fincher's most beloved works is The Game (1997) starring Michael Douglas. Although it failed to reach the level of critical and box office success enjoyed by Seven (1995) or the cult classic status of Fight Club (1999), after watching its Criterion Collection DVD release this past week I came away thinking that it may actually be one of Fincher's best directorial efforts. Working from a script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris (2/3 of the writing trio that helped bring you the 2004 Catwoman screenplay that you enjoyed so much), Fincher's cold/muted color palette, striking visual style, and fantastic pacing help elevate the interesting, albeit occasionally absurd, screenplay to another level. The result is a haunting work that expertly sets up and tears down the callous, calculated world of corporate wealth by forcing Douglas' Ebenezer Scrooge archetype to see the shell of a life »

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

The 40-year-old's role is unspecified in the film, while it is believed Rudd will play Scott Lang, the new incarnation of Ant-Man, and Douglas will play Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, who discovered the scientific technology which affords the hero his powers.

Despite my best efforts, I am unable to figure out who Patrick Wilson will be playing for "Ant-Man," directed by Edgar Wright from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish. With many of the Marvel movies, it is a simple process of elimination. If you're at all familiar with the property, then you can guess who's playing what, but in this case, Wright and Cornish are doing something that is not going to be building off of any one particular storyline or even era of the comic. They're taking some characters people know and building a very different story around them that also now folds into the ongoing story that the larger Marvel movie universe has been telling for the last five or six years. Patrick Wilson is joining the cast in what has ben described as "the last big role still open," and I have no idea who he could be. »

News broke yesterday that Conjuring star Patrick Wilson is in talks to join Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man, Marvel’s summer 2015 blockbuster about the little superhero with the big heart or whatever. Wilson has been on a bit of a roll lately, playing James Wan’s go-to horror guy in Conjuring and the Insidiouses, but a role in Ant-Man would be a return to the blockbuster-action milieu of Watchmen (where he played a good guy) and The A-Team (where he played a bad guy). There’s no official word on who Wilson would be playing, but let’s make a few »

Part of Marvel’s phase two strategy is Edgar Wright’s Ant-man. The film has been moving along slowly for a while but is now steadily starting to pick up momentum. In the last few weeks we’ve had the announcement that Anchorman star Paul Rudd will be playing the current incarnation of the superhero, with Michael Douglas also stepping out of semi-retirment to play an older version.
Today it is being reported that Patrick Wilson star of Watchmen is being sought for an undisclosed role in the movie. Rumours seem to suggest that he could potentially play a third version of the insectoid hero. These days Wilson is more known for his creepy haunted house horror movies Insidious and The Conjuring, but it would be refershing to see him step away from the genre for once.

The small-scale "Ant-Man" is increasing in size, at least where its cast is concerned. Director Edgar Wright's cast already includes Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, two different generations of heroes using the Ant-Man moniker. But now, it appears there could be a third Ant-Man in the rotation — played by Patrick Wilson. The Wrap reports that Wilson, best known within the superhero genre for playing Nite Owl in "Watchmen," ...

The cast of Edgar Wright's Ant-Man is slowly coming together, with latest report saying Patrick Wilson, for his first superhero movie since Watchmen, is joining Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Michael Pena, and Evangilene Lily for Marvel Studio's opening shot in their Phase Three initiative. There is no word on who will be playing, though some people are suggesting since Rudd and Douglas are both playing versions of the size changing hero, he could be playing the third person to hold the mantle, Eric O'Grady, star of the short lived, but awesome, The Irredeemable Ant-Man series (as you can expect from that name, he wasn't a nice guy, being more of an anti-hero who used his powers for personal gain). Marvel Studios have already said that O'Grady won't appear, though they are allowed to change their minds. For me, I think he is playing the villain, because, as superhero movie casting dictates, »

Edgar Wright's Ant-Man may be on the brink of another high-profile addition to its steadily growing cast, with Patrick Wilson the latest name to be linked to the project. The Wrap reports that Wilson has entered negotiations to join the Marvel project, although nothing is known about the potential role he might be taking on. Paul Rudd has already been confirmed as protagonist Scott Lang, while Michael Douglas will co-star as his predecessor in the Ant-Man suit, Hank Pym. Evangeline Lilly has been heavily linked to the role of...

We're not far away from the start of filming on Marvel's Ant-Man movie. Well, we say we're not far away. We're going to be sat here while Edgar Wright and his team put the movie together. But we suspect you get what we mean.
Anyway, there's a new addition to the movie's cast. Joining the already-announced Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas is Patrick Wilson. Wilson, who had a sizeable hit last year with The Conjuring, is joining the film in a thus-far undisclosed role.
Michael Pena is also on board the film, which is set for release in July 2015.

As both The Wrap and Deadline report, Patrick Wilson ("A Gifted Man") is in talks for a unspecified leading role. As it goes with all things Marvel, the role is being shrouded in secrecy for the time being.
When Rudd's casting was announced in early January, "Marvel's Agents of Shield" star Clark Gregg admitted he wants the leading man to appear on the ABC series. We're willing to bet he'd enjoy a visit from Wilson, as well.
Who do you think Wilson might play in "Ant-Man"? Sound off in the comments below! »
