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 collection. 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 function.
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 associate to each Luis (Michael Peña) and Dave (T.I.), all of whom not simply helped the story, however have been excellent comedian reduction. Well, apparently, Kurt received’t be again, as a Disney press launch reveals Dastmalchian performs a brand new character within the collection’ third movie named “Veb.”
Who, precisely, is Veb? We don’t know. But 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 might be made. Director Peyton Reed is clearly a fan of the actor and the story of Quantumania might be slightly too large for Kurt to play an vital function.
As each Kurt and Veb, Dastmalchian turns into one in every of just a few actors who’ve performed a number of characters within the MCU. The different large 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, after all, 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 Bill Murray.
