In a recent interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Bill Murray strongly suggested that he was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Bill Murrait was chatting with Patrick Heidmann about his stint in The French Dispatch when he revealed that he “recently shot in a Marvel movie” although he “probably wasn’t supposed” to talk about it.
“You know, I recently shot a Marvel movie. I’m probably not supposed to tell you about it, but too bad, ”Murray says, with an IGN translation. “Some people were surprised to see me join such a project. But for me it was clear; I knew the director – and I like him a lot. “
“He’s funny, humble, and everything you want from a director. So, I agreed to do it, even though these huge comic book productions don’t usually interest me as an actor. ”
Although he does not specifically name Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, he explains that the director whose name he does not mention is the one to whom we owe Bring it On, and therefore Peyton Reed, the director of both. first Ant-Man movies and the next.
This information from Bill Murray also follows a previous rumor from TheCosmicCircus featuring a casting on Mandy.com whose info indicates that John Townsend was a photo dub for Bill Murray on a production called Dust Bunny. A code name that would be that of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Bill Murray will not be the only new cast for this third film since Jonathan Majords (Lovecraft Country) will also be present for what will be his first feature film.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was recently pushed back from February 2023 to July 2023, during a big change in the MCU’s schedule.
