    cool. he's been in a ton of stuff; a lot of it good. hopefully, he'll be the buddy character (like Rhodey or Happy).

    I hope the female lead is Cassie Lang. Not interested in either of Ant-Men having a love interest.

    Yeah, I was wondering if he'd be playing the villain. He's a good actor, so this is ok with me.

    I'm hoping he's cast as Juan Van Dyne, Hank Pym's Latino lover.

    Diversity, people!

    That was probably funnier in your head.

    I'm hearing talk that he might be playing a thinly-veiled stand-in for Fidel Castro for the 60's flashback scenes.

    they said that he'd encounter Lang in the present. I'm betting that this is more of a Bay of Pigs situation; with Pena having been some kind of young intelligence operative doing really bad things when he came into conflict with Pym. or he might have been an enforcer of someone like Fidel Castro. either way, I think he'll be involved in the organ harvesting in the present. it was a big part of "To Steal an Ant-Man." the surgeon that could save Cassie was kidnapped by some rich dude who needed daily heart transplants.
