Bill Murray CONFIRMS MCU debut, hints at joining Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas & more in Ant Man 3
Actor Bill Murray may finally be joining Marvel’s cinematic universe! While chatting with Variety in a new interview, the 71-year-old actor couldn’t stop himself from dropping hints of his presence in the highly-awaited upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania movie. The publishing also reported that Bill revealed that he just wrapped his role in a Marvel film, but refused to tell any further details about the project. He said: “You know, recently I made a Marvel movie,” before immediately saying: “I probably won’t tell you, but never mind,” he said.
Realising eagle-eyed fans will probably figure it out sooner rather than later, Bill finally did reveal that he was brought onto the project by Peyton. “In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. But for me the thing was quite clear: I got to know the director — and really liked him very much. He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director. So I agreed, although I’m not interested in these huge comic book adaptations as an actor otherwise. Let’s put it this way: the director is a good guy, and now I’ve at least tried out what it’s like to shoot a Marvel movie, but I don’t think I need that experience a second time.”
Apart from Bill’s potential presence in the MCU franchise, the film--Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will also star Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, and the newest cast addition, Jonathan Majors.
