HOLLYWOOD—It looks like Marvel’s latest foray into the comic book universe is shaping up to be an interesting one. “Ant-Man” which is slated to arrive in theaters in 2015, has already cast its title character with actor Paul Rudd.

Bigger news was announced on Monday, January 13, with the addition of Academy Award winner Michael Douglass to the picture. Douglass will portray Hank Pym, a secondary character to Rudd’s title character of Scott Lang.

“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 in a statement on the company’s website. “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.”

“Ant-Man” is slated to arrive in multiplexes July 2015.
