We already know that Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are attached to return as Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne in Marvel’s Ant-Man And The Wasp. And now Michael Douglas says that the studio is making overtures about reprising his role as Hank Pym in the much-awaited sequel.
Douglas told Collider that he’s hoping for a little less technobabble this time around…
“I just got a call recently – they want to negotiate for a sequel and I thought ‘That’s great!’” he says. “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. 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.”
Ant-Man And The Wasp will be out on July 6, 2018.
