Michael Douglas recently sat down with Collider and confirmed that he will be at Marvel's panel in Hall H at this year's San Diego Comic-Con representing the upcoming superhero film Ant-Man. During the interview, he also discusses the loss of director Edgar Wright and reveals that he will be in Atlanta to begin filming the superhero project in August.
Here, he confirms that he will be in Atlanta to begin filming.
"August, yeah. Yeah, I'm gonna go do Ant-Man in August in Atlanta."
He goes on to talk about his appearance at SDCC 2014.
"Yeah! I'm going to Comic-Con. I'm even dragging my son. I promised I'm taking him out of camp ... But we gotta be back here. I've gotta give a cancer speech on Sunday morning. Marvel's 8:45 or - 8:45 on Saturday night, so we're gonna fly all night back and drop him at camp."
He ends the interview by discussing the departure of Edgar Wright.
"He's a wonderful talent. It was very disappointing, yeah. It was a big disappointment and more so for him because he had a lot of years invested and he was really the one initially who got them to even consider it, you know, the screenplay that he wrote. I'm not the producer on it and I'm an actor for hire, and, you know, Marvel certainly has a pretty amazing track record, rightly or wrongly, so I think it just was that kind of combination where although they like the idea of the individual and somebody with Edgar's individual spirit and everything, maybe just collided with an operation - I think they're all on relatively decent terms."
Marvel's panel in Hall H will take place on Saturday, July 26th. No other actors from the project are confirmed at this point, but they will presumably be there.
