Michael Douglas Joins ‘Ant Man’

Variety is reporting that Michael Douglas is to play Hank Pym in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. Edgar Wright is helming the movie from a script he wrote with Joe Cornish.

According to Variety Pym was the scientist who originally created a chemical that allowed him to change his size and when he retired, he handled the title of “Ant-Man” to Scott Lang (Paul Rudd).

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,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. “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.”
