Just days after the death of his mother, Diana, actor Michael Douglas turned out with his family for the European premiere of the latest in Marvel's Avengers franchise, 'Ant-Man'. SOUNDBITE Actor, Michael Douglas, saying (English): "I'm so excited for my kids who are not going to believe it. They haven't seen the movie. My son Dylan now is 14 was an integral part in encouraging me to want to do this picture. So for both Carys and Dylan I can not tell how excited they are. Catherine is close behind. She is happy too." 'Ant-Man' follows ex-con Scott Lang who discovers a suit which can alter his size and strength. And there are high hopes that this small superhero will bring big things to the Avengers films. SOUNDBITE Actor, Paul Rudd, saying (English): "He is completely unique to the Marvel universe, He is a very relatable, normal guy, who kind of discovers this extraordinary suit and I think that what he can do is different to everybody else in it. It adds another dimension to an already exciting group of folks." 'Ant-Man' brings to an end Marvel's 'Phase Two' of their Avengers franchise. Phase Three begins with 'Captain America: Civil War' which will co-star Paul Rudd's shrinking superhero and is out in 2016.
