Patrick Wilson doesn't do the blockbuster thing very often, and when he has — "Watchmen," "The A-Team" — the results have been mixed to say the least. But he's going to give it another shot, because when Marvel comes calling, you pick up the phone.

Patrick Wilson doesn't do the blockbuster thing very often, and when he has—"Watchmen," "The A-Team"—the results have been mixed to say the least. But he's going to give it another shot, because when Marvel comes calling, you pick up the phone.

The actor has joined Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man," according to Deadline, getting set up alongside a cast that includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michael Pena. His role? It's not being revealed just yet, and in fact, not much is known about the plot except that it will be a "heist movie" (though we'd advise not to take that phrase too literally). But with the movie just over a year away, set for July 17, 2015, and filming to begin soon, we'd wager more intel will be coming soon.

And speaking of 2015, Marvel is getting ready to tease their big sequel "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" next month. Joss Whedon has indeed started filming the highly anticipated follow up to "The Avengers," and the comic studio is getting ready to lay the groundwork with "Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe." The TV special is slated to air on ABC next month, where it will essentially be a one-hour commercial for all their films, with the first footage from 'Ultron' to be unveiled alongside new stuff from their other properties including "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy."

The special will air on Tuesday, March 18th at 8 PM and 'Ultron' is coming on May 1, 2015. [Deadline/EW]
