Marvel Teases Blizzard, Confirms Rudd

ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is introducing another comic villain into its narrative - Blizzard.

The episode "Seeds" on January 14th sees the return of the villainous Ian Quinn (David Conrad) and the debut of Donnie Gill (Dylan Minnette). In the comics, Gill dons a battle suit that contains cryogenic circuitry allowing its wearer to generate and focus intense cold.

At the same time, Marvel Studios has finally and officially confirmed that Paul Rudd has signed on to star in Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man". In an official statement, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says:

"When Edgar Wright came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd, we felt a huge sense of relief because the first step in creating any Marvel Studios film is finding the right star. We knew early on that we had found the right person in Paul.

When he not only agreed to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we'd ever met with about doing the work, we knew we'd found the right guy. We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."

"Ant-Man" hits cinemas on July 31st 2015.
