VIDEO: Michael Douglas Dishes On ANT-MAN And San Diego Comic-Con with David Letterman
As the Marvel production seeks additional cast look-alikes in Atlanta, Michael Douglas discussed Ant-Man and going to Comic-Con on the Late Show With David Letterman. Check it out after the jump!
"Oh yeah, I'm gonna do a Marvel Comics thing called Ant-Man," said Michael Douglas when David Letterman brought up the 2015 adaptation, and suggested that the veteran actor still has the opportunity to take on new and challenging roles. "Yep, Ant-Man with Paul Rudd - wonderful actor- and I'm taking Dylan out to Comic-Con for the first time in my life. Which I hear is a scene and a half." Letterman then asked if Ant-Man was a popular comic, to which Douglas replied, "I'm not a comic guy...a couple people in your staff know about it. I don't think it was one of your major [superhero] ones, but this is about an ant." Back on San Diego Comic-Con, which is two weeks away, the Hank Pym actor says he doesn't know all of what to expect. "They just say it is insane; they say it is completely insane. It's a little bit like a Halloween party...everyone gets dressed up as their favorite character; I'm not quite sure. But Marvel has a night & evening." Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Ant-Man was looking to cast a younger-looking Michael Douglas look-alike presumably for flashback scenes in the film, and now Project Casting reveals that the Atlanta-based Marvel Studios production is seeking experienced photo doubles/stand-ins for stars Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Corey Stoll.
