Michael Douglas Not Signed On for 'Ant-Man' Sequels

The Dr. Hank Pym depicter revealed that he didn't have a deal with Marvel for any possible 'Ant-Man' sequels, saying that he's 'not signed up to anything more.'

AceShowbiz - Michael Douglas hinted that he would not return to any possible "Ant-Man" sequels. In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, the actor who portrays Dr. Hank Pym in the film revealed that he had only signed on for the first movie.

The 70-year-old actor seemingly wanted to come back to possible sequels, but Marvel didn't have a deal yet with him. "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," Douglas said. "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," he added.

Douglas also opened up about his desire regarding his character. When a future sequel is happening and he is attached to reprise his role, he wants a larger stake, especially the funny stuff.

When Adam McKay and Paul Rudd rewrote the script, Douglas thinks Pym was left out of the more humorous tone. "Paul and Adam's re-write bought a lot more humor. I accused Paul of bringing a lot more humor to his character! Michael Pena can take care of himself. I on the other hand was left giving the exposition and the plot, which I was happy to do. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre," the actor explained.

Fans may be disappointed to know that Douglas will not reprise his role in any future films, but they will be happy to see Rudd back as Ant-Man in "Captain America: Civil War", as "Ant-Man" post-credits scene has indicated.
