The official standee for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania reveals that an Agents of SHIELD actor has been cast in the upcoming MCU sequel.
An Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D actor has been revealed to be a part of the main cast in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The upcoming Ant-Man sequel will see Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer reprise their respective roles as Scott Lang, Hope Van Dyne, Janet Van Dyne, and Hank Pym as they are transported into the Quantum Realm and encounter Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors ). Kathryn Newton will be replacing Emma Fuhrman as Cassie Lang, while many newcomers will appear in the film, including Bill Murray and William Jackson Harper, who have been cast in undisclosed roles.
Now, from the official standee for the movie (via The Direct), another actor with a history in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seemingly been cast in an undisclosed role. From the stand Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D‘s Katy O’Brian has also been revealed as part of the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. In season 7 of the show, the actor portrayed Kimball, a recruit for Nathaniel Malick (Thomas E. Sullivan) in three episodes. It is unclear if she will reprise that role or play a new character in the MCU, as well Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D doesn’t seem to be “official” canon in the 616 timeline of the franchise.
Will Agents Of SHIELD Actors Join The MCU?
So far, only a few characters who have been introduced in pre-Disney+ MCU television shows have appeared in an MCU film or Disney+ series. In Avengers: EndgameEdwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who was introduced in ABC’s Agent Carter, reprized his role for a brief second alongside John Slattery’s Howard Stark. Aside from that, only Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox came back from Netflix’s Daredevil to portray Wilson Fisk in Hawkeye and Matt Murdock/Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home spirit She-Hulk: Attorney at law, respectively. The two will return in Echo spirit Daredevil: Born Againthough one wonders if it’s time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D actors to finally join the MCU.
Of course, Clark Gregg has already appeared as Phil Coulson before, during, and after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.Din Captain Marvel spirit What If…?, but no other actor from one of Marvel’s most popular live-action TV series has been revisited. However, there have been rumors that Chloe Bennet will be returning to the MCU as Daisy Johnson aka Quake sooner rather than later, and that she will be one of the few Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D characters to reprise her role in the MCU. The character could be soft-rebooted, as with Kingpin and Daredevil – while they are played by the same actors, they have acquired different skill sets in the time since audiences last saw them.
Another plausible character that could make his return to the MCU is Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes aka Ghost Rider, who was introduced during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D season 4 alongside Johnny Blaze. While no actor has been confirmed to portray Blaze in the MCU, it could be interesting to see both characters eventually team up in a potential Midnight Sons project, which will likely occur with the introduction of characters like Blade, Moon Knight and Werewolf by Night during Phase 4. Whether O’Brian will indeed reprise here Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D role will likely only be revealed when Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters in 2023.
