Thanks to USA Today we have the first photo of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang from the upcoming Marvel film Ant-Man.
And then we have word that John Slattery will be in the film as well. Slattery played Howard Stark in Iron Man 2 which lends credence to the rumor that Stark among others would be appearing in the film but the rumor had it being Dominic Cooper who played Howard Stark in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Slattery makes more sense in the timeline though since the meeting is supposed to include Hank Pym and Alexander Pierce.
Also added to the cast are Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington and rapper T.I.
The whole thing kicked off with a tweet from director Peyton Reed at 5 a.m. yesterday:
Alright, gang. Today is the day. LET’S. GET. small. #AntMan
