Matt Gerald

He made a brief appearance as “White Power Dave” in Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, but it appears as if the studio now have even bigger plans for Dexter and Avatar actor Matt Gerald.

As an inmate of Seagate Prison, Gerald’s character butted heads with Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin wannabe, Trevor. This could potentially link to Ant-Man as Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) did spend some time behind bars in the comic books before being paroled for good behaviour.

This leads us to wonder whether we’ll perhaps see Lang come to blows with Dave while serving his sentence or whether they both escape when The Ten Rings broke out Trevor. It’s all connected, and it’s thing type of thing which really distinguishes Marvel!

Of course, Gerald’s role in All Hail the King was a minor one, so there’s always the possibility that he’ll be playing someone else, but that seems unlikely to say the least. Deadline had no further details on his role, stating simply that the actor will be “one of the bad guys.”

Edgar Wright is directing Ant-Man from a script he wrote with Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish. The movie is currently set to be released on July 31st, 2015, and also stars Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, Michael Pena and Corey Stoll.
