Michael Douglas was a big part of the appeal of Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and its success this past Summer, but unlike so many of his co-stars – he was only signed for the one film.
Now, the actor has revealed to Collider that he’s currently in negotiations to return for 2018’s “Ant-Man & The Wasp” to reprise the role of ‘Hank Pym’ However he has one condition – he wants less exposition:
“I just got a call recently – they want to negotiate for a sequel and I thought ‘That’s great!’ Hopefully, I won’t have to carry quite as much expositional dialogue as the first one but I had a wonderful time doing it. Just a great, great time.
The cast was fantastic. Paul, Evangeline, Michael Pena – I’m sure he’ll be back. If they can scrape Corey Stoll off the wall, I’m sure they’ll want him too – he’s such a good villain. And Peyton too. It was a lovely experience, so you know, I welcome it. I chuckle about being involved with a movie that already has a release date in 2018… It’s hard to conceive of that, but it’s all good, all the way around, it’s all good.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is currently targeting a July 6th 2018 release.
