The two actors revealed through their TV roles on "Lost" and "House of Cards" were recently added to the cast of Marvel's comedy feature. Now details have surfaced on their characters in "Ant-Man."

Evangeline Lily will play Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the first scientist to put on the Ant-Man suit. 

Corey Stoll, who played a young congressman on the first season of "House of Cards," will play the supervillain Yellow Jacket, aka Darren Cross, Hank Pym's former protégé.

Details on their roles were revealed along with a new poster at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend.

Adapted from the Marvel comic of the same name, "Ant-Man" tells the story of a scientist who accidentally shrinks himself. He repeats this procedure and turns it to his advantage to become a superhero. As he ages, Hank Pym seeks a successor in Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd ("This Is the End"). 

Directed by Peyton Reed ("Yes Man"), the comedy will also feature Michael Peña ("American Hustle") and Patrick Wilson ("The Conjuring").

"Ant-Man" is due for release on July 15, 2015.
