ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Set To Begin Shooting In July As Michael Douglas Confirms His Return As Hank Pym

The legendary Michael Douglas has taken to social media to announce that production on Marvel's Ant-Man sequel is scheduled to commence some time in July, while also teasing his Hank Pym reprisal...

Michael Douglas has now officially confirmed that he's set to reprise the role of Hank Pym in Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp. Though we all pretty much assumed he'd be back anyway, it was far from a forgone conclusion as Douglas actually only signed on for one movie originally.

As Scott Lang's mentor, Pym was one of the many highlights of the first movie, so this is terrific news. The Academy Award-winning actor will rejoin Paul Rudd as the diminutive superhero of the title, and Evangeline Lilly, who will have an expanded role as Hope Van Dyne.

Douglas also revealed that Peyton Reed is scheduled to begin filming the sequel this July.



Ant-Man and The Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018.
