After years of anticipation and months of controversy, Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man starts filming on Monday, August 18. Then it’ll be a race to the finish as the director will have less than a year to complete the film, which is set for release July 17, 2015. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for improvisation, but in between Edgar Wright leaving the project and the start of shooting, a lot of work has been done to change the film and also add more connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Latino Review now reports on a few characters which will potentially cameo in the film, connecting Ant-Man to the larger world both in the movies and on TV. Read about the Ant-Man cameos below.

Ant-Man is a well-traveled subject thanks to the departure of original director Edgar Wright, but there’s still a whole lot we don’t know about the film. The brief Comic Con presentation gave the actors a chance to explain a few things in their own words, most of which we already knew.
On stage at Comic Con, Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly talked about the basic relationship between Scott Lang (Rudd) and Hank Pym (Douglas), the wearer and inventor of a shrinking technology, respectively. They explained that Stoll plays Darren Cross, aka Yellowjacket, while Lilly appears as Hope Van Dyne, implying that she is the daughter of Pym’s estranged wife Janet Van Dyne.

After working on Ant-Man for the better part of a decade, director Edgar Wright left the project earlier this summer. Eventually, he was replaced by Peyton Reed and the Marvel film is still on schedule for a July 2015 release. No one has come forward and flat-out said why Wright parted ways with Marvel and no one is likely to do so for some time. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, however, is currently doing press for Guardians of the Galaxy and said the split was amicable, and took place because of “creative differences.” He’s also said the film will retain the DNA both Wright and co-writer Joe Cornish created.
