Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania's director and producer discussed how vital Bill Murray's role is in the upcoming three-part series.
Bill Murray is a delight to have him join the cast, yet the world has no idea who he is playing. Whoever it is, the actor is a major component of the film's core cast billing, so his role will be more than a brief appearance.
Previous reports said that he would play a character named Krylar, who had previously appeared in one issue of The Incredible Hulk in 1962 and appeared briefly in Agents of SHIELD.
While the cause remains, the filmmaker of the upcoming film has teased what Murray's character would be doing in the film.
Bill Murray's Key Role in Ant-Man
Peyton Reed, the director of Quantumania and Ant-Man and the Wasp, talked about Bill Murray's "crucial role" in an interview.
Reed claims that the iconic actor is a "person from Janet Van Dyne's past."
Murray's character demonstrates how "the past will always find a way to show up again."
Following Avengers: Endgame, Murray was great and all, but Reed explained how one of the "single most fascinating" scenes in the film was getting to work on "the Scott-Cassie connection."
Will Bill Murray Live to Tell the Tale?
Although the world may not know who Bill Murray's character is for sure, it will likely not keep them from wondering whether he will make it out of Quantumania.
Peyton Reed's above-mentioned remarks suggest that Murray will be a long-time friend of Janet Van Dyne. Seeing as the last time an old friend was a part of the story, ala Laurence Fishburne's Bill Foster, it didn't go so well for the team—hopefully, it'll be different this time.
Murray may have a secret alliance with Jonathan Majors' character, despite Kang's main antagonist. Krylar may also be behind the last notable group that rebels against Kang's rule.
MODOK, who hasn't had much information about himself, isn't the first person to join Bill Murray's ranks.
Fans will have to wait till Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania launches on February 17, 2023.
