While speaking with Collider editor-in-chief Steve “Frosty” Weintraub, the actor confirmed that he has been contacted by Marvel in regards to “Ant-Man And The Wasp”.
Earlier in October, Marvel announced that “Ant-Man” is getting a sequel, with Paul Rudd returning to play Scott Lang. It was confirmed that Evangeline Lilly will reprise her role as Dr. Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne and debut her superhero role as The Wasp. But at the time, the studio did not announce that Douglas will be returning to play Dr. Hank Pym too.
Fortunately though, the actor said he has recently been asked to be part of the sequel. He told Steve:
I just got a call recently.they want to negotiate for a sequel and I thought “That’s great!”
“Hopefully, I won’t have to carry quite as much expositional dialogue as the first one but I had a wonderful time doing it. Just a great, great time,” he said.
“The cast was fantastic. Paul, Evangeline, Michael Pena, I’m sure he’ll be back. If they can scrape Corey Stoll off the wall, I’m sure they’ll want him too, he’s such a good villain. And Peyton too. It was a lovely experience, so you know, I welcome it. I chuckle about being involved with a movie that already has a release date in 2018. Ya know, it’s hard to conceive of that, but it’s all good, all the way around, it’s all good”, he added.
Douglas’ career involves a diverse range of films in blockbuster and independent genres.
His fame began when he produced and starred in a movie titled “Romancing The Stone”. He also starred in a number of films and dramas such as “The War Of The Roses” and “Black Rain”. He has received numerous awards which include the Golden Globe Cecil B. Demille Award for “outstanding contribution to the world of entertainment” and AFI Life Achievement Award.
“Ant-Man And The Wasp” is set to be released on 6th July 2018, but production of the film has not started yet. It’s also unclear who else will join the cast.
