Walton Goggins is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The actor will appear in Ant-Man sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. No details about his character are yet available. The film is beginning production soon in Atlanta and is set for a July 6, 2018, release. Peyton Reed will return to direct stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly.

In April, THR took a tour of Marvel Studios, where Reed showed off concept art from Ant-Man and the Wasp. It included Rudd taking on the Giant Man role that debuted in Captain America: Civil War, as well as using giant versions of everyday objects (such as a human-sized Ant-Man spraying bad guys using an oversized plastic soda bottle.)

Goggins has season two of HBO's Vice Principals premiering Sept. 17, and is also playing the villain in Tomb Raider, which opens March 16, 2018.
