EXCLUSIVE: Clifton Collins Jr Is Set To Appear In Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

ant-man-ss

I just announced this exclusive scoop on Twitter (@LatinoReviewMFR). It’s a small kill, so I wasn’t initially going to publish an article on it, but here’s a little something: All eyes lately have been on Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, and the seemingly soon-to-be-signed Michael Peña, but there is another actor all ready signed up for Marvel’s Ant-Man. That would be TV vet and Pacific Rim co-star, Clifton Collins Jr. The veteran character actor has also appeared in Star Trek, and clearly has a good working relationship with director Edgar Wright, as evidenced by his uncredited role as a vegan police officer in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

As of now, I don’t have which role he is specified for- which is one of the reasons I didn’t initially bring it to the site. But, being that I know my readers love all-things Marvel, figured you’d want to know everything possible. Ant-Man has become quite the hot production these last few days, eh?

When I learn more, you will, too.

Marvel’s Ant-Man opens on July 31, 2015.

    Great Character actor. Love this.

  • The__Usual_Suspect

    Coming along nicely.

  • stu

    Love him he’s great. That Pacific Rim shot makes him look like someone from N.O.V.A corps haha

  • AlexiasLazar

    Latino Villains!!

  • Grant Goodman

    He could pass for a young Michael Douglas… just saying.

  • Stu

    60′s hank pym for sure?

  • Mattman

    Is this a proper EXCLUSIVE or one of those made up EXCLUSIVES??

  • Mad Fadder

    Based on all of the news, he will obviously be the 60′s Pym based on looks alone. Even the voice is similar, with Michael Douglass a little more gravely in his age.

    Keep asking questions like those while our reports keep getting confirmed. Remember the Baron von Strucker scoop? That finally was revealed today.

    Sometimes it takes a few months, but our stuff eventually sees the light of day. And when it doesn’t…it’s not because it was made-up or “BS.” It’s because the plan changed.

    I think Mattman is waiting on the official announcement that Bale is being cast as Batman in Batman vs Superman.

    Couldn’t agree more. Ever since I saw him in 187 I’ve been a big fan.

    i think Ant-man would be a great time jumping piece…yeah lang steals the tech from pym but who’s to say Clifton Collins Jr isnt a younger version of Pym?? Establishing the ant-man tech early on in the movie, they could jump back to a prequel staring pym…..all while being true to the comic source. a Pym origin prequel while this is a Lang origin…fingers crossed.

    TACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brian Knockin

    Maybe he is Young Hank

  • Mattman

    I wish. I’ll take Batfleck for now though.

  • Mattman

    If you throw enough sh*t at the wall, some of it eventually sticks.

    back when he was known as Clifton Gonzales Gonzales

  • johnh

    Haha, so you’ll publish anything and call it an EXCLUSIVE even if it’s not even close to being certain? Anyone can do that and it seriously hurts the integrity of a website like this one.

  • Mario-Francisco Robles

    That’s actually not even remotely what I said.

    I said that when we report on something, it can sometimes take a while for the official announcement. In other words, be patient. Marvel notoriously denies things. Just look at how they flat-out lied about Paul Rudd. But then, months later, magically…what we report is proved true.

    Hope that’s clear now. Thanks for taking the time.
