Disney casting director information for ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘Ant-Man’


Marvel Studios, an owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is currently in pre-production on the action sci-fi feature films The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.

The Disney casting director (contracted by Disney’s Marvel Studios) has been sending out casting notices as Untitled Marvel Project, leading many to speculate that the casting is for The Avengers: Age of Ultron or Ant-Man. Indeed it is the same casting director that holds auditions for both films, Sarah Finn, who has been casting all of Marvel’s films dating back to Iron Man in 2008. According to SAG-AFTRA, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to film from March 1, 2014 through September 1, 2014 – while “Ant-Man” is scheduled to film from May 1, 2014 through October 1, 2014.  The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be shooting in the United Kingdom and Cape Town, South Africa. “Ant-Man” will shoot in San Francisco and Atlanta.

Reports have Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader all starring in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has signed a deal to play the role of Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver. BAFTA Awards nominee Elizabeth Olsen has signed on to play Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch. Paul Rudd has been cast as Ant-Man, while Michael Douglas has joined the cast as Hank Pym.

Academy Award nominee Joss Whedon will return to direct his second Avengers film from a screenplay that he wrote himself based on the comic books by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. Three-time BAFTA Awards nominee Edgar Wright will take the helm on Ant-Man and he also wrote the screenplay. Wright’s directorial credits include the 2007 feature film Hot Fuzz starring Simon Pegg, the Universal Pictures film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starring Michael Cera and Anna Kendrick, and the Focus Features 2013 film The World’s End. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2015. Ant-Man is set to be released on July 31, 2015.

The following is information regarding submitting actors headshots & resumes to casting directors in general, and is not only specific to this project.

See the post titled Headshot and Resume Information regarding how to submit to casting directors for acting roles.

Casting directors DO NOT accept unsolicited phone calls or personal drop-offs.

NOTE:

I highly recommend that your 8×10 color headshot and resume along with the cover letter be sent in a 9 x 12 Clear Full Face Window Envelope with the photo visible in the window.

The casting directors address should be written in all capital letters on the solid side of the envelope, with the name of the project you are submitting for written directly above the casting directors name. If the role that you are submitting for is available, it should also be written above the casting directors name.

Production Companies

Do NOT send photos and resumes to the production companies, as they will most likely end up being thrown away. They do not cast the films, rather they hire casting directors who sort through the thousands of submissions.
