Walton Goggins Joins ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Next year, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily will reunite in the MCU for Ant-Man and the Wasp. And while we currently have no word about who the title duo will take on in the sequel, we have a pretty good idea about who might play the villain. Walton Goggins has reportedly signed on for Ant-Man and the Wasp in an undisclosed role.

Deadline broke the news about Goggins’ casting and suggests that more details may be revealed later this week at Marvel Studios’ Hall H presentation at Comic-Con. Goggins is best known for his starring roles in The Shield and Justified, but he’s also extremely in-demand for TV and film roles. He’s currently starring in History’s Six and HBO’s Vice Principals, with upcoming roles in the Tomb Raider reboot and Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

Naturally, the next big question is: which character will Goggins portray in the film? He doesn’t seem right for Egghead, and Ant-Man’s got a pretty thin rogues’ gallery from which to choose. That said, we think that Goggins could pull off Eric O’Grady, the third Ant-Man, who had some…shall we say, moral failings? Alternately, Whirlwind could be a possibility for Goggins. That character is more closely tied to the Wasp, but why shouldn’t she have her own nemesis this time? That could work out well.

Fresh off the Boat star Randall Park was recently cast in the movie, as was S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo, while Killjoys star Hannah John-Kamen is also set for a mystery role. So far, we’re very excited to see this cast come together!
