Who can we expect to go up against Scott Lang?
JoBlo has a report on who the main villain is for the upcoming Ant-Man film. According to the report, the main villain is Darren Cross.
In the comics, Cross was an enemy of Scott Lang and the head of Cross Technological Enterprises. Instead of being Hulk-sized like the comics, Cross will reportedly have a similar outfit as Ant-Man. In the comics, Cross also has a cousin, William Cross, who becomes the villain Crossfire. William Cross is a CIA trained agent with expert martial arts and weapon skills and a cybernetic eye. So, he's basically the Marvel version of Deadshot.
According to The Wrap's Jeff Sneider (see his tweet below), Corey Stoll (House of Cards) will play Darren Cross, and Patrick Wilson will play William in the film. It's unknown if William Cross will become Crossfire.
Ant-Man is due out in theaters on July 17, 2015.
I'm told Corey Stoll is playing ANT-MAN villain Darren Cross & Patrick Wilson is playing his cousin, who may or may not become Crossfire.
