Tom Beasley sits down with Michael Douglas ahead of the UK release of Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp…
After a very long wait, UK audiences are finally going to get the chance to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. It has been an anxious period of online spoiler avoidance, particularly in the quiet few weeks since England tumbled out of the World Cup. Now, though, it’s time for Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly’s titular heroes to arrive on British screens.
The film also sees Michael Douglas return as brilliant scientist Hank Pym – the man behind the shrinking and enlarging technology in the movie’s superhero suits. This time around, he gets a deeper and more complex arc as he tries to access the quantum realm in the hope of bringing back his wife Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) after decades apart.
To celebrate the UK release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Douglas sat down with Flickering Myth for a fun chat about his work on the movie. Watch the interview here…
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a super hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp sees Peyton Reed returning to the director’s chair and stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michael Pena (Luis), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Abby Ryder Fortson (Cassie Lang), Judy Greer (Maggie), Bobby Cannavale (Paxton) and T.I. (Dave), while new additions to the cast include Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath, Hannah John-Kamen as The Ghost, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.
