When I think of Michael Douglas, the image of Gordon Gekko holding up a fast food restaurant with Catherine Trammell in the getaway car comes to mind. He’s had a nice run of sweet roles, especially in the 90’s. During that run, he was strangely typecast in uber-sexy films that could have easily been soft porn. And God bless him for it too. Because any guy who can land the Zeta-Jones 2000 must be a superhero of manliness. At 70 years old, he’s still commanding cool roles, our present favorite being Hank Pym. Who knows? After this, maybe my next go-to image of Douglas might be of him chillin’ like a boss in a kickass ragtop as a retired Ant-Man. Yup, our first look of him in the role is an impressive one indeed.

Michael Douglas looked cool around the set of Peyton Reed’s Marvel movie. He drove a sweet car and hung out with his kids, who had all access passes. He looks like he’s really enjoying life and is super excited about working on this film:

“Marvel has got it down to a science, pretty much, and they’ve got kind of a phenomenal track record. 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.”

I love to see an actor that gung ho for a role. And now…the Pymster.


Is he rockin’ pink-rimmed shades??? That photo is epic. How the hell do you match your car with your suit!? Pym is an accessorizing badass! Seriously, are we in the right movie? How is this not Tony Stark?


Here he is again in mid pymp-walk, looking on curiously. Everything’s perfectly tailored and he’s hydrating – which is the most important event of the day, I think. Regular water intake prevents dark circles under the eyes and deters acne. His left hand concerns me though, like he’s twitching to initiate a free swing. Because we all know Hank isn’t above the occasional slap.


This is Douglas taking his kids to the set. They have no faces. He’s probably getting major props for playing a superhero. I highly doubt he gave them any tours of ‘You, Me and Dupree’ or ‘King Of California.’ But ‘Ant-Man?’ He’d be a douche if he didn’t show them around ‘Ant-Man.’ Me? My dad was a health and phys. ed teacher, so I hung out in his school’s gym a lot. So I understand EXACTLY how these kids feel!

Here’s the final photo of Douglas with son Dylan. He’s 13, and for a second there I coulda sworn they were holding hands. Now, I’m all for love and affection, but that would’ve set off an alarm with me. A boy can’t be seen holding his dad’s hand when he’s older than 4 – 5, tops! Unless you’re trying to set off my alarms, which I must say, is pretty unkind. I have better things to do than go through life resetting alarms like I’m some kind of ATP customer service tech. I don’t even have a job, thank you very much.

I was joking. I don’t give a damn who holds whose hand. I have my own life to worry about.  Near the top of the list is seeing ‘Ant-Man’ pymp out into theaters July 2015. I’m dying to see how this brainy scientist manages such a player lifestyle. No wonder we won’t get Janet Van Dyne as The Wasp/wife of Hank This depiction of Pym probably has too many women as it is…
