From the Article:

Michael Douglas will star as Hank Pym, who first appeared in Tales to Astonish #27, and joins director Edgar Wright, with Paul Rudd starring as Scott Lang in Marvel's 'Ant-Man,' on July 31, 2015.

"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," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "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."

Thoughts?

I Still don't see how this movie is going to fly...

I don't see Douglass as Pym.

They could and should cast somebody else.

Am I the only one who really likes this announcement?

I wonder if this will ruin the chances of Wasp ever being in a film. I mean, they could have gave Pym his own solo film before introducing Lang. But now, Pym is old and will probably pass his suit down to Lang.

I've never jumped on the hate train with any of these casting announcements before (Affleck,Gadot,etc) but this really sucks. Pym just can't catch a break in the MCU

Catherine Zeta Jones as Wasp

I hate this only because Rashida Jones likely has no chance at playing modern-day Wasp :/

Just putting this out there, but who is to say Michale Douglas will be playing his age? Older actors often play younger men and CGI has improved a lot since Trom Legacy, maybe he will be playing a man not much older then Rudd?

This sucks, they have done injustice to Hank Pym by having a old version of him in the movie even though I hope that M. Douglas will play a 40 something with lots of CGI. However I am also thinking that (since Edgar Wright had said in an interview (wayyy back in 2006) that the plan is to show a young Hank Pym in action as the Antman from the 60s or 70s) maybe Douglas is only for the first movie. In the sequel they can include time travel and bring a young Hank Pym from the past (sounds cheesy though). Hell Kang can help em' in doing that
