The Avengers
Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" seems to be done most of its major casting, but one more name has been announced. Relative unknown and "Terminator 3" actor Matt Gerard has joined the cast as the movie's villain; or one of them anyhow. The identity of that villain is currently unknown and like most Marvel movies, we assume they'll be more than one antagonist

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.

Steven Price Ant-Man
With a BAFTA win under his belt last night, and a potential Oscar on the horizon, thirty-six year old rising composer Steven Price couldn't ask for a better arrival in Hollywood. His work on "Gravity" is already career-defining stuff — not bad for only the third feature film composing credit to his name — and it's not a surprise he's already being tapped from all quarters for more gigs. He's already set to tune up David Ayer's forthcoming WWII flick "Fury," and now Price is going superhero for Edgar Wright.

"It would take a lot, it would take a pretty darn impressive project for me to play a kind of tank top-wearing, tomboy girl, woman.

‘Ant-Man’ Moves To Former ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Summer 2015 Release Date

With "Batman Vs. Superman" pushed back to 2016 for the official reason being that the studio wants to make it as awesome as possible, it was inevitable that some other player was going to take the vacant weekend. And Marvel has done just that in what could be seen as a bit of payback. Read More »

While Marvel likes to keep a veil of secrecy over their projects, it seems they have a leaky faucet in their offices. Just after news broke last night that Johnny Depp was in loose discussions for "Doctor Strange," now another actor is being linked to another big, upcoming project, with Marvel already denying the story.

And today brings another surprise addition, with an Oscar-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner joining the next big Marvel flick.
