Although he was only ever contracted for the one ‘Ant Man’ movie by Marvel. Michael Douglas who did wonderful work in his role of original Ant Man Hank Pym has revealed that he’d love to be involved in any sequels should Marvel want him to return.
On whether he will return in the potential sequel, or in other Marvel films, he told Yahoo Movies: “I’m not signed up to anything more. I’ve learned a whole lot and would look forward to more if it comes my way but, if not, I’ve enjoyed the experience.
“Now I understand a bit more about Hank Pym too. I think in this one I had to carry a lot of plot and exposition. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre… the Quantum Realm!”
Douglas also praised Paul Rudd and Adam McKay’s re-write of Ant-Man‘s script for bringing “a lot more humour” to the film, but said that he didn’t necessarily benefit from it, as he was there to “set up the origin story”.
Ant-Man recently took the lowest US opening weekend earnings of any Marvel movie since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
