Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania Casts David Dastmalchian
The newest trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania made it very clear: this film is sort of totally different from the earlier two movies within the sequence. And that time has now been made even clearer as one of many funniest characters in the unique movies has pivoted to a brand new position.
David Dastmalchian performed one of many ex-cons, Kurt, in each Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp. The character was a tech wizard and companion to each Luis (Michael Peña) and Dave (T.I.), all of whom not simply helped the story, however have been excellent comedian reduction. Effectively, apparently, Kurt received’t be again, as a Disney press launch reveals Dastmalchian performs a brand new character within the sequence’ third movie named “Veb.”
Who, precisely, is Veb? We don’t know. However with the avalanche of latest characters certain to be launched within the Quantum Realm, the place an enormous chunk of the movie takes place, we’re keen to wager he’s somebody down there. As for the rationale behind the recasting, a reasonably well-educated guess may be made. Director Peyton Reed is clearly a fan of the actor and the story of Quantumania might be just a little too huge for Kurt to play an vital position.
As each Kurt and Veb, Dastmalchian turns into one in every of only some actors who’ve performed a number of characters within the MCU. The opposite huge one is Gemma Chan, who appeared as totally different characters in each Captain Marvel and Eternals. Dastmalchian was already one in every of a equally small membership of actors who’ve appeared in each Marvel and DC properties. (Dastmalchian, in fact, performed the unforgettable Polka-Dot Man in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.)
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is in theaters February 17 and brings again not simply Dastmalchian, however Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas, whereas including Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors, Katy O’Brian, William Jackson Harper, and Invoice Murray.
