According to a Marvel press release today, Oscar-winner Michael Douglas is set to star as the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym in Edgar Wright’s upcoming Ant-Man!

“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.”

I guess that clears up the speculation about which Ant-Man Paul Rudd will be playing. It’s Scott Lang!
