Los Angeles: `The Dark Knight` actor David Dastmalchian has been cast in `Ant-Man`. The actor will take on an unspecified role in Peyton Reed`s Marvel Studios project, reportedly.
He will appear in the Paul Rudd-starring superhero film alongside Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson.
Dastmalchian was most recently seen in `Prisoners`. He won the Courage in Filmmaking Award at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival for Animals, which he wrote and starred in.
Reed signed on as director of the film after the surprise exit of Edgar Wright in May. Wright had been attached to the project since 2006.
Details of the plot, which centres around the shrinking superhero, remain under wraps. `Ant-Man` will be released on July 17, 2015.
