Michael Douglas has revealed he's in early talks with Marvel about reprising his role in the upcoming 'Ant-Man' sequel 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

Michael Douglas is in talks to return for the 'Ant-Man' sequel.

The 71-year-old actor has revealed Marvel has been in touch with him about reprising his role as Dr. Hank Pym in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'.

He told Collider: "I just got a call recently - they want to negotiate for a sequel and I thought, 'That's great!' Hopefully, I won't have to carry quite as much expositional dialogue as the first one but I had a wonderful time doing it. Just a great, great time. The cast was fantastic. Paul [Rudd], Evangeline [Lilly], Michael Pena - I'm sure he'll be back. If they can scrape Corey Stoll off the wall, I'm sure they'll want him too - he's such a good villain. And Peyton [Reed] too. It was a lovely experience, so you know, I welcome it. I chuckle about being involved with a movie that already has a release date in 2018. You know, it's hard to conceive of that, but it's all good, all the way around, it's all good."

Director Peyton Reed is already on board for the next instalment, which will feature more of Lilly's character Hope as her superhero alter ego The Wasp.

'Ant-Man and the Wasp' will is set for release on July 6 2018 while Rudd's Scott Lang is to appear in 'Captain America: Civil War' in April next year.

Sequel to Marvel's 2015 superhero flick Ant-Man, which sees the eponymous shrinking hero (Rudd) joining forces with the Wasp (Lilly) to rescue her long-lost mother (Pfeiffer) from a quantum realm. Silly yet also subtle, the film brims with chemistry from its strong cast.
