Michael Douglas has stepped into some of the biggest–or should that be tiniest?–shoes of his career.
The two-time Academy Award-winning actor will join director Edgar Wright and Paul Rudd in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” hitting theaters July 31, 2015.
“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.”
This should finally put to rest any speculation on who Paul Rudd will be playing in the movie and also clue people in on the approach they will some what be taking. Could be interesting but I’m sure there will be some bummed out people who were hoping for a younger Hank Pym.
I for one am intrigued and will be looking forward to this movie more-so now as they have a pretty damn good cast behind it.
