Ant-Man and the Wasp star David Dastmalchian is a self-professed comic book fan before he pursued his career in acting. Along with his fandom of comics from both Marvel and DC, he has appeared in films such as The Dark Knight, both Ant-Man films and even appearances in the television series Gotham and The Flash.
Dastmalchian portrays Kurt, who is one of Scott Lang’s friends and a member of the X-Con Security crew. Dastmalchian had some of the funniest moments in the latest sequel, including his fears of the Baba Yaga.
Although Ant-Man and the Wasp was a smaller, more lighthearted entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the fallout of Avengers: Infinity War, the film ends with two end credits scenes that hint at what happens to some of the characters after Thanos (Josh Brolin) snaps his fingers and erases half of all existence in the universe. While Scott Lang remained inside the Quantum Realm, unbeknownst to him at the time, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) have turned to dust.
Naturally, fans have speculated about who else has disappeared as a result of Thanos’ snap that wasn’t shown onscreen, and after Ant-Man and the Wasp, some have questioned about some of the other characters in the film that survived or not. In a recent appearance on Collider Live, Dastmalchian answered a question about if Kurt survived the snap, to which he humorously responded:
“I did, yeah. This is the funny thing, I don’t understand how people don’t get that. Kurt’s hair is the most indestructible thing. F— Thor’s hammer, F— the shield, F— the freakin’ gauntlet. There’s a pile of dust, and there’s still the hair. If Kurt and Thanos went at it, I would win for sure.”
Dastmalchian then replied with a serious answer:
“That’s one of the things that I was told that I can’t talk about.”
It looks like we will have to find out if Kurt survived the snap once Avengers 4 hits theaters next May.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. AS he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
