David Dastmalchian Joins ANT-MAN In Unspecified Role
Now that the whole debacle surrounding the director of Ant-Man has been resolved, with Peyton Reed taking the job, the focus can now be turned to the actual filming process, which is expected to begin in the coming weeks. But before that can happen, the cast needs to be rounded out, as there are some roles that still need to be filled. There is one less role available today, but we’re not quite sure what role that is.
Deadline is reporting that David Dastmalchian has signed on to Ant-Man in an unspecified role, which isn’t a huge surprise. A while back, it was rumored that Yellowjacket will be the main baddie of the film. With Dastmalchian’s role being kept under wraps, it is possible that he could be filling the villainous role. That is pure peculation on my part, but the actor has a certain look to him that certainly says “villain.” But hey, that’s just me. While his name may not seem familiar, Dastmalchian will be immediately recognizable to you. Many will remember him as one of The Joker’s thugs in The Dark Knight, but he has also had roles in Prisoners, opposite Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, and is coming off high accolades for his work on Animals, which he wrote and starred in.
David Dastmalchian joins Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, Corey Stoll and Michael Pena. As I mentioned earlier, filming is expected to begin filming in the next month or two, so expect more cast members to be announced soon. The film is set for a release in August of next year.
