Despite the events that occured in the mid-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Michael Douglas' MCU future still appears to be very bright. Last summer, Douglas reprised his role as the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym, in Ant-Man and the Wasp. When SYFY WIRE recently caught up with Douglas to talk about the film's recent Blu-ray release, Douglas couldn’t resist offering a teaser about Hank's possible upcoming appearances while joking about the consequences of spoiling anything Marvel related.

"I could tell you a couple of secrets, but then of course, Marvel would give me a blow gun [dart] in the side of the neck," said Douglas. "There's always a possibility that you might pop up somewhere along the line. We'll see. I'm certainly open to it."

Douglas was more effusive about one of Ant-Man and the Wasp’s flashback scenes, which de-aged himself and his on-screen wife, Michelle Pfeiffer.

"Talk about your special effects! The first time, they sit around [and] put these little dots on your face," recalls Douglas. "I was fortunate to be acting with Michelle Pfeiffer, who I've always had a big crush on because she's a wonderful actress. And there's a 'wait a minute, I'm going to act with Michelle Pfeiffer, but then we're gonna look 30 years younger? This is too good to be true!'"

Additionally, Douglas shared his belief about why he was chosen to portray a man of Pym's temperament and arrogance in a way that poked fun at his own persona. He also shared his amazement at the technology behind the two Ant-Man films and how it compared to some of his previous movie experiences.
