CBMB: First Look at Michael Douglas as Hank Pym

By Muuka Muyumba

Under all the news about the DC Universe that exploded over the internet, Marvel had some news leak out showing Michael Douglas on the set of Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man. The new shots show a dapper Douglas being filmed driving a vintage car. Oddly, Pym appears more Tony Stark than scholarly scientist. Pym is rumored to be a crucial player in the technological militarization of S.H.I.E.L.D., and possibly an important part of eventual The Avengers Initiative. I wonder whether he has a part in the early development of the manipulation of the Super-Soldier Serum that winds up showing him how to appropriate the serum to shrink (or enlarge) organic material.

Douglas has acknowledged that his interest in the role as Hank Pym was primarily due to his son’s encouragement to take a Marvel role. Douglas has little knowledge of the history of Ant-Man, but has stuck with the project through the tumultuous development of the film.
