The MCU is full of extraordinary talent and last year Michael Douglas was added to the Marvel family as Hank Pym in Ant-Man. With Avengers: Infinity War about to start filming, directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War) have stressed that there are a lot of characters in the movie. One character that will certainly be returning is Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton\Hawkeye and Michal Douglas hopes that Hank Pym and Clint Barton will have an encounter…
“One of the joys of being in the Marvel family is they find ways of transitioning your character into other Marvel films, so hopefully there will be a moment in the future where Jeremy and I have the chance to be in the same Marvel film together. The Marvel family is pretty extraordinary. They have made 18 films and every one of them has been successful, which is an extraordinary accomplishment. I don’t think any other studio has had the same degree of success.”
The best upcoming chance for Michael Douglas and Jeremy Renner to share a screen is 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. Michael Douglas hasn’t said whether or not he will appear in Avengers: Infinity War but given that the film will bring together people from all corners of the Marvel universe, hopefully he will be in the movie. The Ant-Man sequel, titled Ant-Man and The Wasp, will be released between Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers 4 and it will see the return of Hank Pym’s daughter hope played by Evangeline Lilly. With Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly both returning, it’s highly likely that Michael Douglas will also return.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theatres on May 4th 2018 and Ant-Man and The Wasp releases soon after on July 6th 2018!
