Filming on Ant-Man began today in San Francisco, CA, and will later head to Atlanta, GA, which will serve as the base for the film’s production, according to Marvel, who announced the news this morning.

Last week, we reported on a rumor that some of the cameos we would see in Ant-Man would have some pretty big connections. Stark seems to be at the center of those connections, with Peggy Carter, Howard Stark, and Arnim Zola also being involved. Based on that, we can speculate that Hank Pym would be a member of the group that helped create S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s announcement today confirms that cast has grown quite a bit. Judy Greer, T.I., Bobby Cannavale, and John Slattery have all joined the film. We can also confirm that Michael Pena is going to be in Ant-Man. Hit the jump for more.

What is a bit strange about Marvel’s press release is that it doesn’t mention the roles for the new cast. Based on what we have heard over at SDCC, Michael Douglas playing Hank Pym and Paul Rudd playing Scott Lang, we do know that Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Van Dyne (the daughter of Janet Van Dyne), while Corey Stoll will play Darren Cross aka Yellow Jacket. Based on Slattery’s casting it is safe to say that he will reprise his role as Howard Stark. We will most likely see some sort of working relationship between Hank Pym and Howard Stark, plus how Pym got himself involved in the the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D. But how Greer, Cannavale, and T.I. play a role in the film is still very much unknown. Michael Pena was rumored to play a villain of some sort, but that too remains unconfirmed.

The film also stars Abby Ryder Fortson, Wood Harris, and Gregg Turkington

Director Peyton Reed will be up against the clock, as he will race towards finishing the film in time for its July 17, 2015 release.
