Superhero movies are good for the cinema
Douglas sprinkled roses on his film partner Michelle Pfeiffer, with whom he first appeared in front of the camera for the “Ant-Man” series. “She’s a great actress but also a great action figure,” said the 78-year-old. The character embodied by Pfeiffer was lost in subatomic space for 30 years before she was able to hug her husband Pym again in “Ant-Man and the Wasp”. In the third part, the reunited couple is hardly granted togetherness: “I was hoping to have more time as a married couple in this film before the action begins,” Douglas smiled.
Douglas sees it as a blessing that superheroes have been dominating screen events for a long time. In addition to horror productions, these are currently the “only successful films in cinemas, they keep the cinema business afloat”. Streaming brought a lot of change. “We have to keep clinging to superheroes, they keep our cinemas open.”
