The good news is the Ant-Man sequel has finally been released on digital and fans everywhere are excited to get a second viewing of the hit Marvel film. Those hoping for one of the film’s beloved characters to get a standalone film were unfortunately given some bad news, though.
Director Peyton Reed was asked on Twitter if Luis, the fast-talking character played by actor Michael Peña, would ever get a one-shot, MCU recap, or even a standalone film. The character is a fan favorite and definitely steals the show in every scene he is in. His signature shtick is when he tells a story in a very unique way with the characters he is referring to lip-syncing his hilarious dialogue. While he has no powers, his personality alone could easily fill up a One-shot and would definitely translate into a comedic film. But according to Reed, he won’t be getting one.
Hi, @AL3XMPLARY! We actually shot a Scott/Luis MCU recap that introduced Michelle Pfeiffer to the MCU. It screened exclusively at Comic-Con 2017. Maybe it will see the light of day at some point. As for Luis standalone movie: nope. https://t.co/aJot6xPIXz

Luis is one of the things that makes Ant-Man stand out from the rest of the MCU. Peña is a great actor and could absolutely do a great job if he got a standalone film. Here’s hoping he’ll get one in the future.
Would you like to see Luis get his own film? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
