The MCU might be adding another Canadian actor.
Asma Khan has posted a pic on Twitter of actors Paul Rudd and Emmy-winner Dan Levy of Schitt’s Creek enjoying a meal at her London restaurant, Darjeeling Express.
Is there a chance that Levy is joining Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania?
There are examples of these hang-outs signaling potential roles.
This normally wouldn’t be worth noticing, however, we saw Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi hanging out with Russell Crowe in Sydney only for the actor to confirm he is playing Zeus in Thor: Love & Thunder.
Benedict Wong was also spotted with Simu Liu at a restaurant in Australia and he’s now confirmed to have a major role as his MCU character Wong in Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings.
Director Peyton Reed has an affection for comedians previously giving cameos to Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington in past Ant-Man installments. Dan Levy, like Simu Liu, both had hit comedy shows on Canadian network CBC meaning that Marvel Studios/casting team are aware of those shows. The popularity of Schitt’s Creek skyrocketed before it’s final season.
Levy has teased an openness to play mutant and Alpha Flight member Northstar on Twitter.
This is just speculation and could be simply two friends hanging out. However, Levy seemingly doesn’t have anything shooting in London and interacting with Rudd would suggest the two are potentially in the same bubble (it’s expected Marvel cast members are sticking with people from the set to avoid spreading COVID-19).
Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania has finally started shooting at Pinewood UK Studios under the working title Dust Bunny and we’ll see Jonathan Majors playing the film’s big villain, Kang The Conqueror. The evil variant of Majors’ Loki character He That Remains and is expected to become the next Thanos, being an antagonist in multiple MCU movies.
The rest of the cast includes Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton as the newest incarnation of Cassie Lang, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
The sequel will debut in theaters on February 17, 2023.
