Michael Douglas Will Play Hank Pym in Marvel’s ANT-MAN
Marvel has landed another legendary actor for their cinematic universe! They've cast Michael Douglas as Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man! Douglas joins Paul Rudd, and he's going to be awesome in it! Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had this to say in a statement,
“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves. We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”
According to Variety, "Marvel had pursued Douglas early on for the part, but the actor was cautious until sources said he had a change of heart over the holidays." There are still no official plot details for the movie, but I couldn't be happier to see Douglas actually take on this role!
