Marvel is launching a movie for Ant-Man in 2015, and signed a major star to be in the adventure.

Michael Douglas is cast as Hank Pym, who first appeared in TALES TO ASTONISH #27 (Jan. 1962). Paul Rudd will play Scott Lang in the film.

Says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feig:
With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves. We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.

Michael Douglas will join director Edgar Wright and leading star Rudd in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” hitting theaters July 31, 2015.
