New “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” Casting Details Revealed

With the release of the second Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer last night, Marvel also revealed some interesting casting details including the role played by Bill Murray in the upcoming film.

  • Murray is set to play Lord Krylar in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
  • Krylar is a character in Marvel Comics but not one with a whole lot of history. He is a resident of the Microverse, which obviously fits with what we know about this character in the film, as the first trailer reveals him in the Quantum Realm.
  • Another interesting bit of casting news is that William Jackson Harper will be playing a new character known as Quaz.
  • Many fans had theorized and hoped that Harper would be the MCU’s Reed Richards but it appears that will not be the case.
  • Strangely, David Dastmalchian, who has played Kurt in both of the first two Ant-Man films, will not reprise the role for the third.
  • Instead, he will be portraying a new character known as Veb, likely another resident of the Quantum Realm.
  • And finally, Katy O’Brian will portray a character known as Jentorra.
  • Jentorra, another character from the comics, is also a resident of the Microverse, a magic user and one of the realm’s freedom fighters.
  • As for some unofficial news, the trailer also gave us our first look at the MCU’s MODOK, a popular villains from the Marvel Universe.

  • Fans have noticed that the character appears to be portrayed by none other than Corey Stoll, who played the villainous Darren Cross in Ant-Man.
  • It will certainly be interesting to see if Cross did, in fact, somehow become the MCU’s version of MODOK and how/why he is in the Quantum Realm.
  • His relationship with Kang is also a mystery, as we can see him trailing behind the master of time in the shot above.
