Great news, everyone! Michael Douglas is returning to the MCU as scientist supreme Hank Pym for Ant-Man and the Wasp! What's that? You know already? Sure, this isn't exactly the most shocking of revelations, but entertainment news sites are like lemmings. If one of us leaps off a cliff into a gigantic lake of bountiful clicks, the rest of follow right along. In this case, we're leaping off the cliff behind nuclear physics themed pop culture website Collider, who reported on a post from Michael Douglas's Facebook page:
Hank Pym returning for Ant-Man and the Wasp beats out several other stories for least surprising news of the day, including a sixteen-slide listicle on ComicBook.com titled "You Won't Believe How Wet Water Is," and The New York Times' investigative report: "Donald Trump Did Something Stupid Today." Hopefully, there won't be any scenes requiring a CGI-assisted young Michael Douglas this time around, because those give us the heebie jeebies.
Ant-Man and the Wasp, starring Paul Rudd, Michael Pena and Evangeline Lilly, will be in theaters on July 6, 2018.
