Making one good movie is hard enough. Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been making one or two per year. If the films continue to be successful, company president Kevin Feige says that number could potentially double. In a new interview, Feige suggests that depending on the next several years of Marvel films, there’s a chance the current model of two films per year could expand to three or maybe even four.

Patrick Wilson is joining Ant-Man, to be directed by Edgar Wright, in a role that is yet to be revealed. He was often brought up by speculators as a good choice for Hank Pym, the originator of the Ant-Man technology, but he won’t have that role in the film.
Wilson adds to the existing roster of Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Pena. Rudd is playing Scott Lang, at one point a thief and eventually the second Ant-Man, while Douglas is playing Pym. Read More »

Briefly: While her turn on Lost should have been an instant star-making situation, it has taken a couple extra years for Evangeline Lilly to be established as a movie presence. (Or for her to decide to take roles; she’s likely had all the opportunity you’d expect her to be offered.) Her role in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug may have done the trick, however, and now Lilly is in early talks to join the cast of Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man.
THR says she would be the female lead, but doesn’t specify the role. The trade only says it would not be a one-off gig. In other words, the headline could be “Evangeline Lilly joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” She must be playing a version of Wasp, which would put her in a prime spot for the third Avengers film.
Also cast are Michael Douglas, as Dr. Hank Pym, and Michael Pena. Ant-Man is set for release on July 17, 2015.
