Michael Douglas Wants Funnier Lines In ‘Ant-Man’ Sequel

When Paul Rudd and Adam McKay did a rewrite of Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s script for Ant-Man, they may have given all the best lines and moments to Rudd’s Scott Lang.Michael Douglas playfully says “Not fair!” in a new interview with Yahoo! Movies. Anyone out there that felt that Douglas was an exposition machine in the film will be happy to hear that the veteran actor agrees with you, and would love to get in on the fun if he’s invited back for a sequel. 

Paul and Adam (McKay’s) re-write brought a lot more humour. I accused Paul of bringing a lot more humour to his character! Michael Peña can take care of himself. I, on the other hand, was left giving the exposition and the plot, which I was happy to do…

That’s what Douglas said, while on the topic of the rewritten script. Douglas seems to think he’d fare better in a sequel:

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. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre… the Quantum Realm!

But speaking of sequels, unlike many of the other actors signed by Marvel, Douglas reveals that he actually didn’t sign a multi-picture deal. That’s not to say that he wouldn’t return. In fact, it sounds like he’d love to.

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.

Would you like to see Douglas bring his Hank Pym back in future Marvel films? Do you think Douglas was saddled with too much exposition in Ant-Man? Discuss.
