The “Ant-Man” movie is set for release on July 17, 2015, from director Peyton Reed.
Joining star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym, and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym, are T.I., along with Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, John Slattery and Gregg Turkington.
As for what specific roles T.I. notably, is playing in the movie, he previously teased his involvement in the film, during an interview with V100.7 Radio a couple of months ago, when he said that he wasn’t at liberty to talk about the part, but that he would be… drum-roll… “a superhero’s homeboy.”
When it was first announced that he’d joined the film’s cast, many of you were worried that he’d be playing a hoodlum, thug, or a gangster, and the like. While his revelation to V100.7 may not entirely calm your concerns, it looks like he’s at least one of the good guys – “a superhero’s homeboy;” That superhero likely being Ant-Man. So he’s likely one of Ant-Man’s sidekicks. And the below clip from the film, released today, kind of confirms that.
