Default Re: Fancasting for Ant-Man

Sometimes it seems like fans only know ten names and 'Nathan Fillion' is five of them. The other five being 'Emily Blunt'.

Josh Duhamel would be a solid pick for Hank Pym, in my opinion. He has the acting chops and the charisma to carry the film, if given a good script to work with. Duhamel might have trouble pulling off the nerdy scientist act, though. James Marsden is another actor who'd be a good choice. Marsden is a versatile actor who was wasted in the X-films. He can handle both the action of the film and drama.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
