Michael Douglas cast in Ant-Man

Michael Douglas, who just won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Liberace in the TV movie Behind the Candelabra, has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. He’ll be playing the role of Hank Pym opposite Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in the film, which will be directed by Edgar Wright. It’s scheduled to hit theatres 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.”

    What odd casting choices for this movie. I think Marvel is taking a page out of the upcoming DC playbook with this movie’s bizarre castings.
