ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Star Michael Douglas Would Be Up For Playing A Young Hank Pym In A Prequel

We saw a younger version of Hank Pym in Ant-Man and a full cast list reveals that we will again in Ant-Man and The Wasp. Unsurprisingly, Michael Douglas is hoping this leads to a prequel he can star in...

Some incredible and no doubt very expensive special effects were used to make Michael Douglas look decades younger in 2015's Ant-Man but as technology has advanced yet again since then, it's now feasible that sort of visual effect could be sustained for an entire movie (we know that Ant-Man and The Wasp will feature flashbacks next month so it's clearly something Marvel Studios is revisiting too). 

There's no denying that a movie revolving around a younger Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne would be a lot of fun, especially as they clearly went on a lot of adventures during the 1980s. Whether or not such a story would be a priority for Marvel is another matter but Douglas certainly seems to hope so.


"I’d like to see him, if there’s magic, we do movie magic in terms of flashbacks. How about getting Hank back to his prime age as the Original Ant-Man and kick some serious ass?" he said during a recent interview when asked about his Marvel future. "I’m ready. I’m geared. I need a good stunt double. You know, I’ll find him, but you can make me look 40 years younger let’s do the whole job!"
