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.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
