Ant -Man Breaking News: Michael Douglas is Hank Pym

 

Since PAul Rudd was cast as Ant-Man I ( and others around me) thought that he would also play Hank Pym but, now it seems, that is not the case. Paul Rudd will be Ant-Man but it has become known that Rudd will be playing Scott Lang, a common thief who steals the Ant-Man equipment from its creator.  A press release by Marvel tell us that Michael Douglas will be Hank Pym. Read that below. 

 

"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.


Ant - Man is set for release July 2015 with Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang.
