MICHAEL DOUGLAS TO PLAY HANK PYM IN ANT-MAN!!!
Kevin Feige has just announced some of the greatest Marvel casting news since, Bruce Banner/ The Hulk was recast with Mark Ruffalo. Michael Douglas will be playing Hank Pym!
It sounds horrible at first. But, if you don't make a snap judgment, it's damn brilliant casting. Why? Because Michael Douglas is great at playing loveable assholes. But, so, is Paul Rudd? Well, Paul Rudd is going to play Scott Lang; which means, Paul Rudd could also be playing Ant-Man. But, given the current theories that Lang will be impersonating Ant-Man in this film and the confirmation of a caper-esque plot. It will be interesting to see Rudd and Douglas go toe to toe. As Douglas' Pym will be closer to retirement age and Rudd's Lang, will be the hot shot up and comer.
On top of all this new depth added to the character and the story. The casting of Michael Douglas will be box office gold. As last year showed a new trend of older actors bringing in the numbers at the box office.
Needless to say we are very happy here at Previously Untitled with this news. Follow us on Twitter @PU_FilmBlog for more...when there is more.
