Michael Pena has confirmed that he could be starring in the Ant-Man movie.

The Gangster Squad star has been tipped for a role in the Marvel film, and hinted to Collider that he will be signing on the dotted line.

Asked if he has committed to the movie, Michael said he had been talking to director Edgar Wright about the role.

"Hopefully things work out," he added.

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are already on board for Ant-Man and last month it was reported that Patrick Wilson has also joined the film.

Ant-Man was the alter-ego of scientist Henry Pym in the original comic, but later his successors Scott Lang and Eric O'Grady also used his invention.

Ant-Man is due to start shooting in April.

A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
