I think Michael Douglas will do a great job as Hank Pym. We know Paul Rudd will be playing Scott Lang, but to see him pretty much takeover the Ant-Man role from Pym will be nice to see on screen. Think of when Robin gets all of Bruce Wayne’s stuff at the end of The Dark Knight Rises. Here’s what Michael Douglas had to say about the film:
“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.”
It will be great to see Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas on screen together. Everyone was curious as to which Ant-Man Paul Rudd would be playing, but this casting news pretty much clears it up!
Ant-Man will be released on July 31, 2015.
