‘Ant-Man' Star Shares Epic Way His Character Should Be Killed Off

Michael Douglas wants to be wiped out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If it were up to Michael Douglas, his “Ant-Man” character, Hank Pym, wouldn’t have survived as long as he has in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While appearing on “The View” earlier this week, the 79-year-old actor addressed his past comments about his desires to be killed off in the franchise.

“[Death] actually was my request for the third [movie],” Douglas explained of his ingenious character who managed to survive the dangerous events in all three films. “I said I’d like to have a serious [death], with all these great special effects.”

“There’s got to be some fantastic way where I can shrink to an ant size and explode, whatever it is,” he added. “I want to use all those effects. But, that was on the last one. Now, I don’t think I’m going to show up.”

Douglas didn’t immediately respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment.

The Oscar winning-actor first starred as the passionate scientist in 2015’s hit film “Ant-Man,” which starred Paul Rudd as the miniature superhero. Douglas also appeared in 2018’s sequel, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and 2023’s “Quantumania.”

Douglas’s latest comments come after he told The Hollywood Reporter in February 2023 that he would return for a fourth film as Pym “as long as I could die.”

While film producer Stephen Broussard noted in a separate interview that Marvel Studios is eyeing a fourth “Ant-Man” film, considering how badly “Quantumania” bombed, we’re not exactly holding our breath.
