Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Adds Michael Douglas as Hank Pym

Michael Douglas as Hank Pym? Didn't you tell us that Paul Rudd was playing the lead role in Ant-Man, Popculturology? Well, yes … and no. Marvel announced on Monday that Douglas has joined director Edgar Wright's film to play Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man.

"With Hank Pym's rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn't be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life."

So what's this mean for Rudd? It looks like he'll be playing Scott Lang, the second person to don the Ant-Man armor. In the comics, Lang became the second Ant-Man after stealing the technology from Pym.

This is pretty exciting casting news. Yet again, Marvel has snagged another A-list acting to dress up as a superhero in its Cinematic Universe.

Ant-Man opens on July 31, 2015.
