[Movies] Michael Douglas Explains Why He Signed Up For Ant-Man
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014



In an interview with Reuters, Michael Douglas explained why he signed on to play Henry "Hank" Pym in Marvel Studios' Ant-Man. Pym is the creator of the technology that shrinks a human to the size of an insect. Paul Rudd will play Scott Lang, the alter ego of the hero. Pym first appeared in Marvel's Tales to Astonish #27 in January 1962. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that Douglas will play Pym with "charm and fortitude".

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

Douglas also explained that he wanted to do something different, similar to how no one expected him to play Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candleabra, which earned him a Golden Globe.

He added: "Sometimes - like (when) they didn't see you for Liberace - you've got to shake them up a little bit and have some fun."

The plot for Ant-Man has not been revealed. It will be directed by Edgar Wright and arrives in July 2015.

Douglas also teased that he could be in some of the Ant-Man sequels. It would be only his second sequel in his entire career, after 2010's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. He said: "(Marvel) reciprocated well, there are sequels. Who knows?"
