Now that Michael Douglas is part of the Marvel franchise, it looks like he wants to keep the ball rolling with future roles. The Ant-Man star said that he would love to play in a sequel to the movie if the opportunity would present itself.
In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal this week, Douglas admitted that he is quite eager to reprise his role as Hank Pym in another film
He said, "It'd be great. It'd be wonderful if it comes up, but there's no - I haven't heard any plans or anything. ... But I gather, at the famous Marvel end credits tease, you get a sense ... of what might happen in the future. I don't want to spoil that for people who haven't seen the movie."
The Hollywood star also admitted that making Ant-Man, which also stars actors Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, was one of the most entertaining films he's ever worked on.
Douglas explained, "It was a wonderful shot in the arm. I'd never done anything like this. I've always been a little envious of people who have been in them: Jack Nicholson is a dear friend of mine, Danny DeVito. Then combine that with the incredible batting average that Marvel has. I just thought it was a tremendous opportunity. I was fascinated by the special effects."
He added, "I hadn't done any movies with special effects. I was pretty curious to see how it went. I just loved going between the units. We were in the first unit, obviously, the principal actors, but you had the second unit with the stunt guys, the third unit with the special effects, and the fourth unit was with the ants. I just found it fascinating to see how they put it all together."
Ant-Man is playing in theaters nationwide now.
