Michael Pena Circles Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

Paul Rudd is set to star

With Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas now set as Scott Lang and Hank Pym, Marvel has now moved on to other supporting players by offering Michael Pena a part in “Ant-Man.”

Edgar Wright is directing with Kevin Feige producing.

Plot details are still vague, but fans have suspected Wright is taking a different approach since both Lang and Pym were the superhero at some point.

Marvel is planning a April shoot and the female lead the last major role left to cast. Rashida Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard have been mentioned but, as of now, no one has been offered the part.

Even if Dallas Howard got an offer, she may have an issue with doing “Ant-Man” as she is also on board for “Jurassic World” which would turn into a scheduling conflict. Jessica Chastain was also approached for the part but passed on it.

Pena is repped by CAA and just wrapped production on Sony’s “Fury.” TheWrap first reported the news.
