Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas posed with an Ant-Man mask at a signing for their upcoming Marvel movie, at the 2014 Comic-Con in San Diego, Cal., on Saturday afternoon, July 26.

Douglas and Reed described Ant-Man as “a heist movie, ” according to Digital Spy.

Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man has been plagued with negative buzz, reports Digital Spy. Like yesterday’s announcement that three cast members had left the project. Fans have not been happy with the news from the Ant-Man sets ever since director Edgar Wright was let go.

But it looked like a peaceful enough intro session yesterday, as fans were at least cordial, possibly excited, to meet new director Peyton Reed, along with his stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Corey Stoll.

They chatted about their movie, which should come to a theater near you sometime next year.

“I have too many [muscles]. Too many. I’d lift up my shirt, but I actually have a Thorax now, ” Paul joked when he was asked about his abs, reported Just Jared. He also joked that he can probably use Chris Pratt‘s shirtless photo of his rock hard body instead of taking one of his own.

Reed’s told the crowd he’d been to Comic-Con “20 times” as a fan, and once drew himself as Ant-Man on a flyer for his punk band, Johnny Quest, according to Digital Spy.

Michael Douglas plays physicist Dr Henry Pym, who discovered the technology that lets Ant-Man do his shrinking thing. The doctor’s personal issues lead to a breakup with his daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly).

Evangeline Lilly says hasn’t seen a script yet, because the final script is yet to be hammered out.
