Michael Douglas Confirmed for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Michael Douglas Confirmed for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

The sequel to the 2015 hit, Ant-Man, just received a giant boost with the confirmation that the original Ant-Man: Hank Pym, played by the legendary Michael Douglas, will return for the sequel.  While it is usually a given that that most Marvel Studio film’s respective cast will return for their sequel this wasn’t the case for Douglas, so his return is welcome news for Disney.  A Recent run of legendary actors such as Robert Redford taking part in Captain America Winter soldier, as well as Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has given the MCU a much needed dose of gravitas that it looks like will only continue into the future.

Douglas took to his Facebook to confirm the news with an ominous photo (seen left).  Douglas’s smug, but unusually lovable demeanor fit perfect for the role of Hank Pym the original Ant-man who Marvel fans have a love/hate relationship with.  It will be interesting to see if Director Peyton Reed dives more into the martial disputes between Pym and his wife the original wasp: Janet Van Dyne or if the movie remains s typical upbeat MCU affair focusing on Pym’s mentoring relationship with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly).  We will have to wait to when Ant-Man and the Wasp hit theaters for those and so many more answers on July 6th 2018.

Brad Bell

I grew up in North Carolina, where my love for the Spiderman and Batman the Animated Series on Fox Kids fueled my journey of Geekdom. In January 2013 I started my own site: thepicreview.com and for over two years hosted my own podcast the Confirmed Epic Podcast. Since 2016 the podcast continues on the gww radio network. As of early 2015 I joined the geeks with wives crew for a greater opportunity to work with similar people who let the passion for the properties they love drive them, and a chance to interact with a world wide fan base of fellow geeks. I am a happily Married Geek, as of November 2014 to my Wife Abby who only shares my geek passions when it comes to Superman, Wonder Woman,the Flash, as well as Captain America. We live just outside of Charlotte, NC with our three dogs: a Golden Doodle: Sadie, our Jackabee: Penney, and our Beagle: Cookie. In April of 2018 we were blessed with our first child: Harper Jane Bell, who we named after Harper Row from Scott Snyder's Batman run. When I’m not covering or taking part in geek culture as The Reel Brad Bell my secret Identity is Mr. Bell a High School U.S History Teacher and AP Gov. Teacher. My Wife is an ICU/PICC/Charge Nurse. The only thing that comes close for my love of Superhero’s and Star Wars is my love for the Carolina Panthers! #KeepPounding Much to my Wife’s chagrin I am a self proclaimed poster addict and add a couple of Mondo Posters to my collection a year. My current favorite piece prints are my Tyler Stout: Avengers. As far as my geek Cred, I have met both Stan Lee and George RR Martin so Nuff Said! My geek love is mainly focused on Comics, TV, and Film although I do own an Xbox One X (gamertag: thereelbradbell). My favorite comic right now is Dan Slott's Spider-Man Renew Your Vows. My favorite movie of all time is The Dark Knight, and my love for the genius that is Christopher Nolan is unprecedented. My top 5 Favorite Geek Properties of all-time are: Batman, Spiderman, Star Wars, TMNT, and Power Rangers it’s been this way for as long as I can remember and is till the same in adulthood.
