Bill Murray playing a villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Bill Murray plays a villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the 71-year-old actor has revealed. During an appearance on former American football quarterback Eli Manning’s YouTube show for his New York Giants team, when asked what ghost hunters and the Groundhog Day star’s superpower will be in the upcoming third standalone The ant Man film, Murray casually remarked, “My power is that I’m a bad guy.” Murray wasn’t pressed on his reveal by the host, although if he was, he clearly didn’t say anything significant. Don’t expect Murray’s villainous character to stick around.

In October last year, while on the promotional tour for The French Dispatch – the Wes Anderson film Murray was a part of – Murray revealed for the first time that he had filmed a role for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Murray noted that he liked director Peyton Reed and “so I agreed, although I’m not interested in these massive comic book adaptations as an actor otherwise.” When asked if he regretted it, Murray replied, “Let’s put it this way: the director is a nice guy, and now I’ve at least tried what it’s like to make a Marvel movie. But I don’t think I need this experience a second time.

Here. Murray’s appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is likely something unique for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, the character of Murray is not the main villain of the third The ant Man movie anyway. That honor goes to Jonathan Majors, who is set to play Kang the Conqueror – his appearance and role are officially confirmed – a variant of Time Variance Authority creator He Who Remains who appeared on the Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar series. Loki. Majors’ Kang is actually set to be the MCU’s next big villain, set to cross over into different entries.

In addition to Murray and Majors, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania naturally stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/Wasp. They feature alongside Michael Douglas returning as Ant-Man and Hope’s original father, Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer as the original Wasp, Pym’s wife and Hope’s mother, Janet van Dyne, who was lost in the Quantum Realm for 30 years before being rescued in Ant- The Man and the Wasp. Kathryn Newton is also new to the film as Lang’s teenage daughter, Cassie Lang, replacing Emma Fuhrmann who played her in Avengers: Endgame.
