Michael Douglas Isn’t Signed On For ‘Ant-Man’ Sequels

Michael Douglas Ant-Man

Unless you’re a villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you are probably signed on for multiple Marvel Studio films. Samuel L. Jackson is infamous for signing a nine-picture deal, while Disney had to renegotiate Robert Downey Jr.’s contract when his deal expired with Iron Man 3. So a majority of the time, actors sign multiple pic deals that locked them in either for a large role or even a cameo.

However, a big surprise now is that actor Michael Douglas isn’t signed on for more Ant-Man or other Marvel movies. But that doesn’t mean the actor isn’t interested in reprising his role. In fact, he has expressed a huge interest in making a return as Dr. Hank Pym. More on the story below.

In an interview with Yahoo UK, the actor said that he only signed up for the one film. But as previously mentioned, Douglas does have a desire to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe,

“I’m not signed up to anything more. I’ve learned a whole lot and would look forward to more if it comes my way but if not I’ve enjoyed the experience. Now that I understand a bit more about Hank Pym too. I think in this one I had to carry a lot of plot and exposition. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre… the Quantum Realm!”

SPOILER ALERT FOR ANT-MAN ……… Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was able to return from the Quantum Realm after being forced to tamper with the Ant-Man regulator. In one of the film’s flashbacks, Janet Van Dyne had attempted a similar feat, but never returned from the Quantum Realm. Lang’s success would seemed to be the inspirational spark Pym needed to find out if he could bring his wife and his daughter Hope’s (Evangeline Lilly) mom back.

Now there is nothing to suggest that this would be a plot or subplot for Ant-Man 2 for a couple of reasons.

First of which is that Marvel has already laid out the groundwork for the entire Phase 3 of the MCU. Ant-Man 2 doesn’t seem to be a part of that plan, and with Avengers: Infinity War Part II closing out Phase 3 in 2019, the earliest we could see more Ant-Man is in at least 2020.

Of course that doesn’t quite mean that we won’t be seeing Ant-Man until Ant-Man 2. The character has a role in Captain America: Civil War, which opens the door for Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne to appear in other films outside of Ant-Man 2.
