Dan Levy denied a rumor that he was cast in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Production on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is underway in London, and last month, a photo of Paul Rudd and Dan Levy led to some fans speculating that the Emmy Award-winning actor from Schitt’s Creek will have a role in the upcoming sequel. Well, it turns out that is not the case.
During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Dan Levy was asked about the viral photo he had with Paul Rudd, confirming that it was just a dinner that they both enjoyed together, debunking any involvement with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania:
“That was the last time I was in London. Grateful to have a photo with Paul Rudd. I had dinner with him and his lovely family. The downside of having dinner with Paul Rudd is that the Internet, in this case, went wild with a conversation that included “Paul Rudd looks so much younger than Dany Levy,” “They must be best friends,” and Dan is in talks to be in Ant-Man . And the answer is: I wish I was best friends with him, not true, not in Ant-Man, and he also looks much younger than me. So it’s kinda a lose-lose, other than the fact that you are having dinner with Dan Levy with Paul Rudd, which is a win-win.”
Dan Levy is a very charismatic and talented actor with a wonderful knack for comedy. Even though it appears he won’t be in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, his comedic sensibilities could blend well with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s sense of humor in a future project. In fact, he would slide in well with the DC Extended Universe and any other franchise as well given his talents.
Directed by Peyton Reed from a script written by John Loveness, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton and Jonathan Majors.
Ant-Man and the Wasp were last seen in Avengers: Endgame. Here is the official plot synopsis for the Marvel Studios film:
