'Ant-Man's' Michael Douglas Gushes About Marvel's 'Phenomenal' Record

Michael Douglas hasn't begun filming Ant-Man, but he has all the confidence in the world in the project.

That's because the Oscar winner believes in the Marvel vision. He tells Vulture that after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, there's nothing the studio can't accomplish.

"Marvel has got it down to a science, pretty much, and they've got kind of a phenomenal track record," Douglas said. "I love this picture they did this summer, Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s really good! I think that's given Marvel the confidence to step out in this whole new area, so I’m looking forward to adding to it."

He had similarly kind words for director Peyton Reed, who replaced Edgar Wright on Ant-Man earlier this year.

"He’s good," the actor said. "I haven’t started yet, actually — I go down tomorrow, and it’s my first day. So I’ve met him a couple times, but he seems to be in control of this beast, this wild beast."

However, Douglas' views on some of those lining up to see Ant-Man could rub certain fans the wrong way.

"I remember reading a few comics when I was a kid, but not like these people," he said, referring to the fans he met this summer at Comic-Con International. "I don’t know where these people come from. They kind of remind me of Ken Kesey up in Oregon, macrobiotic freaks coming out of the mountains bare-footed. Who are these people? It was an education."

Ant-Man arrives on July 17, 2015.
