Walton Goggins Joins Ant-Man And The Wasp Cast
Ant-Man and The Wasp has added a new cast member to its already impressive line-up, with The Hateful Eight and Django Unchained star Walton Goggins joining the bunch in Atlanta.
No details regarding Goggins' role in the film have surfaced just yet but Marvel Studios is slated to have a two-hour showcase of its upcoming films on Saturday at San Diego Comic Con, where it is a safe bet that Goggins' role will be announced by the studio. Most recently, Goggins played a key role in the upcoming Tomb Raider film, opposite Alicia Vikander.
Goggins tells ComicBook.com he has been a longtime fan of super heroes, making it difficult to choose a favorite. However, while speaking in an interview ahead of The Hateful Eight's release, it didn't sound like an Ant-Man role was on the actor's radar.
"I suppose Batman was high up on the list for me," Goggins said. "My mother-in-law actually sewed a homemade Batman costume for me. I still remember that as kind of being ... but I had never felt that invincible before, and second to that, I really dug Flash Gordon. Sam Jones, man. Flash Gordon, man, and I just left there wanting that f---ing thing he had. I thought he was so cool. Yeah, probably him. Sam Jones, dude, that's funny. I mean everybody can have Superman and Batman, I'll take Flash Gordon."
