Now that "Ant-Man" has a new director in the form of Peyton Reed, due to Edgar Wright's departure, we have some more context on a couple of details from the film. These details also reveal what villains they will focus on.
According to reports, "Corey Stoll is playing ANT-MAN villain Darren Cross & Patrick Wilson is playing his cousin, who may or may not become Crossfire."
We knew that these two actors were associated with the film, so there's no surprise there. But this not only reveals who they will be playing but a central part of the upcoming story that will be explored.
While he may have a smaller role in this film, Wilson as Crossfire has the potential to be a very large character in an upcoming film, should Marvel and team go down that route. Wilson is a quality actor with a wonderful on-screen presence, so I would certainly not be upset about his extended involvement in this universe.
Stoll is mostly known for his captivating performance on Netflix's "House of Cards". Wilson has recently experienced some great success with horror films including "Insidious: Chapter 2" and "The Conjuring". It will be interesting to see more details on how their characters will be utilized in upcoming months.
