Jump to Comments


Get excited, Ant-Man fans, because Michael Douglas is going to be in the sequel!

Since the first film from the Marvel universe about Ant-Man hit theaters, we’ve been waiting to hear which stars would be coming back for the second installment.

On Friday, Douglas revealed he is in fact coming back as Dr. Pym.

While he previously hinted at the fact that he was open to returning, it wasn’t until last week that he told his fans that he was SO ready to start shooting Ant-Man 2 aka Ant-Man and the Wasp.

“Getting ready to play Dr. Pym again in Ant-Man 2 shooting in July. Need to start growing the goatee now. #antman #marvel,” Douglas wrote on Facebook.

The goatee coming back is exactly the news we wanted to hear, so yay!

In addition to Douglas, Ant-Man 2 is set to star Paul Rudd, who will reprise his role as the superhero, and Evangeline Lilly will be back as Hope Van Dyne.

What do you hope to see in the sequel? Are you happy about Douglas coming back for another Marvel-tastic movie?

Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to hit theaters on July 6, 2018.
