David Dastmalchian is an Ant-Man and the Wasp character: Quantumania cast, but this time instead of Kurt, he will play a new character.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: There will be a lot of new characters in Quantumania, but some of these new characters will be played by familiar faces. A new character will now be played by David Dastmalchian, who previously portrayed Kurt in the Ant-Man films.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Audiences are taken back into the Quantum Realm during Quantumania. Following the events of Avengers, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang is now a powerful figure: He was instrumental in defeating Thanos in Endgame.
After five long years apart, he finally sees his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) and realizes that he missed out on many of her life’s milestones. The villain Kang (Jonathan Banks), who may be stronger than Thanos, adds to the problem.
Dastmalchian will not play Kurt, the Russian ex-con, this time, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. He will instead play a brand-new character named “Veb.” Only a few actors have the distinction of having played two roles in the MCU, making him one of them.
Gemma Chan, who played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel and then Sersi in Eternals, Mahershala Ali, who played Cottonmouth in Luke Cage before playing Blade in the same-name film, and Alfre Woodard, who played a small role as a grieving mother in Captain America, are among the most notable. prior to her role as Mariah Stokes in Luke Cage.
The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Despite the fact that audiences now know Veb’s name: The role of Quantumania is still a mystery. Veb might be a resident of the Quantum Realm because the movie will spend a lot of time there.
To avoid confusing fans, the character may also be one in which Dastmalchian is unrecognizable. On the other hand, the Ant-Man films are known for being funny, so it wouldn’t be out of the question to make a joke about Veb looking exactly like Kurt.
Recently, Dastmalchian has established himself as a character actor. He recently turned into a fan favorite as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad, a character considered Z-list in the comics and frequently used as a joke or trivia. His performance as Kurt was also memorable, and MCU fans became memes when he confused Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) with Baba Yaga.
Ant-Man: Homecoming is certain to be very different from Quantumania. Except for Scott’s best friend Luis (Michael Pea), Scott’s team—which featured Kurt in previous films—likely won’t show up. The Ant-Man family is about to face their toughest battle yet as they must leave behind everything they used to know.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: On February 17, 2023, the movie Quantumania will be released in theaters.
