CBMB: Ant-Man Tidbits — Set Photos of Michael Pena and Michael Douglas Wraps

By Muuka Muyumba

Versatile actor Michael Pena stars alongside Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, and Evangeline Lilly in the upcoming action-comedy Ant-Man. Marvel’s last film in Phase 2 of its cinematic universe will introduce the new hero to audiences after a long gestation in development.

Pena is one of those actors, much like Mark Ruffalo, who has been waiting for his chance for a big stage to show just how good he can be. Although he isn’t playing a superhero, he should have a chance to flex his muscle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When you ask which role Pena is best known for, its hard to say because he has shown out so many times. For me, his comedic turns (Eastbound and Down, Observe and Report, 30 Minutes or Less) have been extremely rewarding, but he is also a skilled dramatic actor and was particularly memorable in David Ayer‘s End of Watch.

Pena’s character has not been named, but its pretty clear that he will be playing a Pym technology security guard. Pena is part of a veteran of a talented group of supporting actors, including John Slattery, Judy Greer, T.I. Harris, Bobby Cannavale, and Corey Stoll, who plays the main baddie, Darren Cross. It was also recently revealed that Agent Carter herself, Hayley Atwell, will have a cameo in Ant-Man in what was been described as a flashback to the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Ant-Man is due in theaters on July 17, 2015, and Michael Douglas revealed yesterday that he had wrapped principal photography for his role as Hank Pym. He even shared a behind-scenes-photo of himself and his stunt-man of 26 years, Mike Runyan.
