Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym in Ant-Man.

Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang in the upcoming movie, to be directed by Edgar Wright.

Marvel confirmed the Douglas casting on Monday.

“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.

He continued, “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 will be released in July 2015.

On Sunday, Douglas won a Golden Globe for his work in Behind the Candelabra.
