Michael Douglas Confirms He’ll be Back for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Though it was largely a given, actor Michael Douglas has confirmed via Facebook that he will reprise his role as Dr. Hank Pym for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp. The actor also revealed that production on the sequel is set to begin in July.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is being written by Transformers writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari and Academy Award winner Adam McKay (The Big Short) along with returniing director Peyton Reed and star Paul Rudd.

“I think the only thing I can tell you with certainty at this point… is that it’s going to have stuff in it that you’ve never ever seen in a movie before,” Director Peyton Reed previously teased about the forthcoming sequel.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will also feature the return of Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym along with scene-stealer Michael Pena as Luis. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018.
