While appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend to promote his new film The Reach, Michael Douglas talked briefly to MTV about Ant-Man.
Production on the film started last month and now Douglas has revealed that we will NOT be seeing him wear the costume that allows him to shrink to ant size and that it will be solely for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd).
"Paul Rudd is ripped. He's been training and working out for this picture for a long time. He was so cut, that they had to soften his costume up, with all the built-in six-packs and all of that. My costume will be hung up and Paul will be wearing it in good form."
Ant-Man will be Douglas' first foray in the superhero genre, and his first big visual effects film and confesses having a difficult time grasping the concept.
"No, I couldn't relate to it on any level. They have this different way of working, but Marvel obviously has this incredible track record. They kind of... everything sticks to the wall, you know. It's a broad canvas, and they can afford to, and they kind of hone it down. And it's this effects world, and I've never done any effects movies. One of the challenges of The Reach is how do you do a thriller, in bright daylight, with no special effects, in this day and age, and still keep an audience's attention? It seemed to have worked, whereas Ant-Man is going to be... I can't get into a whole lot of detail, but clearly there's going to be a lot of stuff revolving around the size of an ant's perspective."
Ant-Man is still in production and will be released July 2015.
