Los Angeles: Matt Gerald has signed on to play a villain in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'.

The film is set to star Paul Rudd in the title role, along with Corey Stoll, Patrick Wilson and Evangeline Lilly, reported Deadline.

Gerald recently starred in the Marvel one-shot 'All Hail the King', where he played a character called White Power Dave.

It is unclear if he will be reprising that role in 'Ant-Man', or playing an entirely new character.

Marvel has been relatively consistent with universe tie-ins for all of its properties, with recent release 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' connecting to the current season of Agents of SHIELD.

'Ant-Man' is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015 in the US and the UK.
