Marvel has just announced that Michael Douglas will be joining Paul Rudd in the role of Ant-Man in the upcoming movie. Michael Douglas will be Hank Pym and Paul Rudd will be Scott Lang.
Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ president, has said, “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.”
I am personally beyond excited that we will be seeing both Ant-Mans in the movie! I am utterly in love with Scott Lang and absolutely adore him in FF. Speaking of, I was so sad to see Matt Fraction leave those titles.
Anyway, I think I can speak for many fans when I say it’s about time our Hank Pym got himself a movie! Kudos to you, Marvel.
