Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ gets a villain in Matt Gerald

Director Edgar Wright has found a villain for Marvel’s Ant-Man. He has cast Matt Gerald, who appeared in James Cameron’s Avatar, will play the nemesis for Paul Rudd.

The news was first reported by Deadline, which offered no further details. However, IGN does point out that Gerald did appear in All Hail The King, a Marvel One-Shot that will be featured on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray and DVD. There’s no word if he’ll play the same character in Ant-Man.
