ANT-MAN Star Hints That We May Not Have Seen The Last Of 'Mitchell Carson' In The MCU Shortly before Ant-Man was released, it was revealed that Martin Donovan was playing Mitchell Carson in the Marvel movie. Comic book readers will know that character as an enemy of the Eric O'Grady version of Ant-Man, and many of us ended up speculating that he might end up being a bad guy in a possible sequel.
