Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Finds a Villain in Matt Gerald (Photo)

7 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Marvel is keeping its next villain all in the family.

After starring in the Marvel One-Shot "All Hail the King" alongside Ben Kingsley, actor Matt Gerald is set to join "Ant-Man" as an unidentified antagonist. It's unclear if he'll reprise his "King" role of White Power Dave; Deadline reports he'll play simply "one of the bad guys."

Gerald's previous, non-Marvel credits include roles as tough guys in films including "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," "Avatar," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Escape Plan." He'll next be seen in the thriller "Solace," which stars Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins.

Along with Gerald, "Ant-Man"'s eclectic cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Envangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Patrick Wilson. The flick is directed by Edgar Wright, from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish.

"Ant-Man" is set to debut July 17, 2015.

Marvel's "Ant-Man" has found its villain -- well, one of them anyway.  Relative unknown Matt Gerald has signed on to play an unspecified bad guy role opposite the titular pint-sized superhero, played by Paul Rudd, according to Deadline. Rudd plays Scott Lang, the latest hero to take on the mantle of Ant-Man, while Michael Douglas will play original Ant-Man Hank Pym. Little has been revealed about the plot of the film, which is being directed by Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," "The World's End"). The cast also includes Patrick Wilson ("Watchmen") and Michael Pena ("End of Watch"). Scheduled to open summer 2015, "Ant-Man" will allegedly be tied directly into "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," which opens two months earlier. The studio released "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" this weekend.  Following small roles in "Avatar" and "Escape Plan," Gerald will soon be seen in "Solace," alongside Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell. »

4 April 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heath Ledger would be celebrating his 35 birthday had he not passed away at the age of 28 in 2008. In honor of his memory, Hugh Jackman named him as a worthy successor to the character of Wolverine, revealing that he wanted the actor to play a younger version of Logan at one point in the past.

It's no secret that after 7 movies and at least one more on the way, Hugh Jackman is considering hanging up his adamantium claws for good. During a Q&A session to support his latest go at the character in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he appeared alongside Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, the Aussie was tasked with answering a question that has been nagging at everyone. Who should replace him as Logan while this Marvel Mutant series continues on at 20th Century Fox?

John C. Reilly Joins Bizarre Love Story The Lobster

Just when you thought that Hollywood was all “out of ideas,” a film like The Lobster comes along. Before we get into the casting news that broke today though, read the “dystopian love story’s” description below:

“Single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel and are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods.”

Do you need to read that one again? Go ahead, I’ll wait.

As bizarre as this film sounds, it could actually be rather enjoyable, thanks in no small part to its stellar cast. Today, THR reports that John C. Reilly has come on board, joining Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Olivia Colman, Ariane Labed and Angeliki Papoulia.

John C. Reilly Joins Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux In Yorgos Lanthimos’ 'The Lobster'

31 March 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fuck, pardon my French, this cast rules. You should know and love Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. He directed “Dogtooth” and “Alps” and quickly landed as a Cannes favorite and one-to-watch shortly thereafter. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s making his English-Language debut, it’s called “The Lobster” and it already features the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Léa SeydouxOlivia Colman, Ariane Labed (“Alps”) and Angeliki Papoulia (“Dogtooth”).  Today, four more actors were announced as additions to the cast including John C.Reilly, Scottish actress Ashley Jensen, Michael Smiley (perhaps best remembered for "A Field in England," "Kill List" and "The World's End") and Jessica Barden (“Tamara Drewe”). The synopsis is pretty awesome too: a love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. »
