Michael Pena was easily one of the best parts of Ant-Man, but he may not even appear in its sequel.
Pena revealed that he hasn’t received a call yet to return in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to the 2014 movie starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. The movie is set to start shooting this summer, so it does indeed seem to be cutting it close to the deadline if he were to reprise his role as the scene-stealing Luis.

When most actors join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they sign a contract with their own blood, binding their soul to the franchise until they fulfill their number of movies or sacrifice That Which They Love The Most before the statue of Stan Lee hidden in crawlspace under the McGraw Hill Building in New York City. But not Michael Douglas. Oh, no. When the Academy Award-winning living legend signed on to play the aging former superhero Hank Pym in Ant-Man, he only signed on for a single movie, leaving his involvement in the upcoming sequel a big question mark.

One of the joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that everything is connected, at least in theory. But some superheroes within it are more connected than others.

Last summer, Marvel Studios brought Ant-Man to the big screen, and the tiny superhero turned out to be a big hit, changing the pace by being a smaller, more isolated comic book flick. It has been particularly refreshing after The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up being a little too big for its britches, and the film’s success resulted in Marvel quickly changing up their schedule to allow for a sequel called Ant-Man and The Wasp to land a spot on the calendar in 2018.
Since we’re a couple of years out from the film’s set release, Marvel is making more moves to fill out the cast by bringing back one of the most entertaining parts of the film: Michael Pena.
