So they’ve cast Michael Douglas as Hank Pym for the upcoming Marvel project Ant-Man. Sounds like a complete shocker, right? But apparently, the movie will incorporate both Hank Pym and Scott Lang, in a storyline showing Hank Pym’s Ant-Man some time in the past, and in which his now older self is set opposed Scott Lang as the new Ant-Man, which is said to be portrayed by Paul Rudd.
When I first saw that Michael Douglas had been cast as Pym, I was distraught to say the least. I mean, I’m pretty sure he’s a little old to be battling supervillains, don’t you agree? But as I read on, this storyline that they mention actually sounds really cool and I can’t wait to see the final product, as it stands as the initial starter for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic universe!
