The folks over at JoBlo have come across a number of tidbits for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII and Ant-Man. Though most of them deal with costume changes for some of the characters, it's what they've learned about Ant-Man that we thought was most interesting.

In their report, the site mentions that the main villain of the film will be Darren Cross, a foe of Ant-Man Scott Lang in the source material and head of Cross Technological Enterprises. The site reports that instead of his Hulk-like stature in the comics, Cross will go toe-to-toe with Ant-Man in an outfit similar to the hero. Darren Cross also has a cousin, William Cross, who becomes the villain Crossfire in comics. A CIA trained agent with expert martial arts and weapons skills, in addition to a cybernetic eye.

Unfortunately, JoBlo was unsure at the time of their publication who would be playing these two, but Jeff Sneider at the TheWrap now brings word that "House of Cards" star Corey Stoll will play Darren Cross with Patrick Wilson taking on the William Cross role, though he may or may not become Crossfire in the film. Check back for confirmation on these rumors in the near future.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Also starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, Ant-Man is set to be directed by Peyton Reed and is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015.
