Its a crisp California morning and David Dastmatchian has been up for hours doing interviews to promote the DVD release of Ant-Man and The Wasp. Having just returned from filming on the East Coast, we were able to catch David for a quick phone interview in between his packed schedule, which had him travel between locations to do video interviews and a Reddit Q&A session.
David Datsmalchian is mostly know for his somber, dark and troubled character (his eye catching turn as a paranoid squizophrenic in The Dark Knight Rises comes to mind) but for Marvel, we see a lighter side to the Kansas raised actor.
It’s been about 3 years since we last saw David in his Ant-Man character, Kurt so we were interested in learning what it was like for him to get back into this persona. “It’s very rare that it happens, that I have the chance to try back on the hair, the voice, the wardrobe of a character that I’ve played before. I am just so grateful that during the time between filming Ant-Man and the time we went to make Ant-Man and the Wasp, that I stayed in touch with and became friends with so many of the people that make the movie, that are in the movie, so it was great. The first day back on set it just felt like being right back with your family, like at a family reunion.”
