Wow! Not sure if anyone saw this one coming, but two-time Academy Award winning actor Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym in Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige released a statement saying "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."
Pym, is an iconic character as he is one of the original founding members of The Avengers. He’s also responsible for creating Ultron! All that said, he is haunted by being classed as a wife beater when he hit his wife Janet Van Dyne! Whether or not that makes Wright’s story remains to be seen.
Douglas will join Paul Rudd and we can see how well he fits into some tiny shoes come July 31st 2015!
