Michael Douglas Wants Catherine Zeta-Jones To Play Wasp In Ant-Man Sequel

Michael Douglas, who stars as Hank Pym in Ant-Man, was asked by MTV who he would cast as Hank's wife and original Wasp Janet van Dyne in a potential future installment. It didn't take him long to think of his 45-year-old wife.

"Catherine Zeta-Jones," Douglas immediately replied. "Wouldn't be a bad idea. Remember her in Entrapment? You know, she's pretty good at all that stuff. Then it would call for me to put on all that CGI, where I get twenty-five years younger. So I can go back and put on the Ant-Man suit. I'd be happy at this point to be in another Ant-Man. Or even if Hope goes to be The Wasp, my kid, or Catherine, who knows."

Listen to Douglas' comments in the video below.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
