Michael Douglas Wanted To Have A ‘Serious Death’ For Hank Pym In Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania

Douglas doesn’t believe the original Ant-Man is likely to return for a new installment.

Michael Douglas said last year he’d be up for a fourth ‘Ant-Man’ film if Hank Pym met his end in it. The actor recently also revealed that he actually wanted Pym to die in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.’ He told on ‘The View’:

“This actually was my request for the third one. I said I’d like to have a serious [death], with all these great special effects.”

The original Ant-Man made it through the third film, but Douglas seems ready to step away from the MCU now. He continued:

“There’s got to be some fantastic way where I can shrink to an ant size and explode, whatever it is. I want to use all those effects. But that was on the last one. Now, I don’t think I’m going to show up.”

The MCU actor is promoting his new biographical drama miniseries, ‘Franklin,’ at the moment.

The Franchise’s Future Is Up In The Air

Marvel did not yet announce any future plans for the ‘Ant-Man’ series. The latest film was one of two major box office failures for Marvel in 2023 alongside ‘The Marvels.’

‘Quantumania’ started the fifth phase and introduced Kang the Conqueror as a new main villain. But critics didn’t react well to the movie, and audience interest dropped sharply after its first weekend.

The movie ended up making less than $500 million worldwide. Paul Rudd later admitted to Insider that he had ‘no idea’ what his future in the MCU might hold:

“None of this is my call, so I try not to think about it too much. So you’d have to ask the Marvel brass that one.”

Meanwhile, Rudd’s newest movie, ‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire,’ came out in March 2024.
