Marvel has some really exciting projects set to come out in the upcoming years that are actually sequels to existing narratives. Hardly any details have been revealed regarding these projects even though we are getting some details over the days. While the details of the plot are being kept under the wraps, fans are trying to figure things out on the basis of the casting details. This has not been much help either with Marvel making sure that the information regarding the roles is kept in secrecy. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is definitely amongst the much-hyped upcoming projects. It was recently revealed that Bill Murray is to appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will primarily focus upon the events after the Infinity Saga. The name itself could be a humorous nod to the fact that the term Quantum is mentioned a lot throughout the movies. It was confirmed that Kang the Conqueror will be shown in the movie as Jonathan Majors will reprise that role. He is actually supposed to be the primary antagonist in the movie. This would give us some idea about the events that transpired following the ending of the Disney+ series Loki. But it seems the movie has added another actor to its roster of characters.
Bill Murray is to appear in Ant-Man 3
Bill Murray has joined in on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He is one of the most recognizable actors in Hollywood with multiple credits that range from high-profile films like Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, etc. The actor will also be seen in two of this year’s major releases The French Dispatch and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, where he will probably end up reprising his role from the 1980s.
It’s not that will be something new for the actor as he has worked in cinematic franchises before but it still sounds a bit weird that he would be in an MCU film. Maybe it is similar to the time he signed up for the Garfield movies because he thought it was written by one of the Coen Brothers. The actor has never actually worked in a superhero movie and it will definitely be an interesting watch to see him do so.
According to an interview he did with the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine, he revealed that he has filmed a part in a Marvel movie. Murray didn’t confirm which movie he was talking about but he did give us a hint by sharing one of the director’s previous projects, Get It On. This was helmed by Peyton Reed confirming that the actors will indeed be working in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
He said in the interview:
You know, recently I made a Marvel movie. I probably won’t tell you, but never mind. In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. But for me the thing was quite clear: I got to know the director – and really liked him very much. He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director. And with the cheerleader story “Bring It On – Girls United” he made a movie years ago, which I think is damn good. So I agreed, although I’m not interested in these huge comic book adaptations as an actor otherwise…Let’s put it this way: the director is a good guy, and now I’ve at least tried out what it’s like to shoot a Marvel movie. But I don’t think I need that experience a second time. And to come back to your previous question: I have mostly had a pretty good knack for avoiding the nasties of this industry. Fortunately, most good artists are also good people. At least that’s how I experience it with my friends.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania could feature Bill Murray in a one-time small cameo performance. This was something that was also done with his SNL co-star Garrett Morris. The movie will feature a lot of old faces in the form of past Ant-Man stars. The idea of Bill Murray joining the cast of the film gives the movie a completely new scope and storyline for the fans to ponder upon.
