When Marvel's Ant-Man started production back in August, the studio released a brief synopsis for this Phase Two adventure. The plot rundown was updated slightly last month, changing Paul Rudd's Scott Lang from a "con man" to a "master thief," but didn't offer any new story details. Stitch Kingdom has found yet another updated synopsis for Ant-Man, which doesn't shed any new light on the story, but reveals that Jordi Mollà, who was never previously announced as joining the cast, is playing Castillo. Take a look at the plot rundown below, which also includes character names for Judy Greer, who is playing Scott Lang's ex-wife, T.I. and David Dastmalchian.
Marvel's Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Pena as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip "T.I." Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym.
It isn't clear when exactly Jordi Mollà came on board, since shooting has already wrapped, but if previously-rumored plot details are to be believed, he will likely play a big role in this superhero adventure. Back in January, a report surfaced that Michael Pena was playing a villain named Castillo, though it seems he has switched characters. Now played by Jordi Mollà, the character doesn't exist in the Marvel comic books, and is said to be inspired by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. He will reportedly appear at the beginning of the movie, which is set in the 1960s where a younger Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is fighting Communism.
We also reported last month that Hayley Atwell will reprise her role as Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger in these scenes set in the 1960s. Jordi Mollà most recently starred in Riddick, and he will next be seen in In the Heart of the Sea. What do you think about him joining the Ant-Man cast? Chime in with your thoughts below.
