Michael Douglas Explains His Decision to Star in "Ant-Man"

Michael Douglas Explains His Decision to Star in "Ant-Man"Submit Comment
Marvel just confirmed that Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym in the upcoming "Ant-Man" movie, while Paul Rudd will play Scott Lang. In a new interview with Reuters, Douglas explained why he decided to play a Marvel superhero.

"I've been dying to do a Marvel picture for so long," he said. "The script is really fun, the director is really good. Dylan (Douglas' 13 year-old son) will love it. He'll have a [movie] he can see."

Douglas admitted that his casting is a bit unexpected, but that's the reason why the role became so intriguing to him. And while it's not clear whether he'll have an opportunity to return for a sequel, the actor confirmed that Marvel is already planning "Ant-Man 2." Unfortunately, he never said whether he'll return.

"Ant-Man" is directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and is set to hit theaters on July 31st, 2015.

I don't remember Ant-Man having throat cancer from eating rotten cooch.

I don't think he got it from eating Catherine Zeta's muff, but rather from sucking Glenn Close's d*ck on the set of FATALAATTRACTION.

You bastards had an X-Files convo without me!? Damn you mink! Lol But I can agree with what you said, the show really did die off after season 6 ended. I watched the Season 2 finale last night as I've been browsing the seasons resently watching my favs again.

Anyhow.. Micheal Dougles for Antman! No way! No Way!
(I could really give a f*ck)

Edgar Wright is a clever geezer and if Marvel let him run with this in his own direction it could be as unique as a film as Iron Man 3. I'm not familiar with Ant Man at all other than the fact that he's slightly bigger than Prince, both culturally and literally, so I would have no idea on who should play who. Won't Michael Douglas be a bit tied down with the Halo movie to do any sequels to this anyway, could be a risky casting.

Way to use an old promo picture from the Original Wall Street alex. That is by far a poor representation of him today.

He looks alot different now. I wonder if they will do flash backs to a younger time and cgi his face like they did patrick stew and ian for the last stand. I swear that was the only cool thing about that movie

Why'd they choose Douglas to play the part?
NO ONE gives a sh*t about that old FART!

well Douglas just won best actor^
and his movie won as well
so
even though i would rather see a Hackman comeback its apparent Michael Douglas can still bring in viewers

So he basically took the role because his thirteen year-old kid would finally have a movie he can watch?

Not sure what's worse...Douglas saying he didn't take the role for money and exposure, or his kid's alleged inability to find one movie he likes out of millions of possibilities.
