A lot of speculation is swirling about Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo in Ant-Man and The Wasp. Woo’s character has been a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent at times in the comic, but is that his role in the new film?
During a set visit by ScreenRant the Specialty Costumes Supervisor Ivo Coveney was asked outright if he had been tasked to design a S.H.I.E.L.D. suit for Park, to which he responded “No, No.”.
Jimmy Woo has been around for a lot longer than most Marvel characters, having been introduced in 1956 in the then Atlas Comics spy book Yellow Claw. In later incarnations, he was shown to have been an early member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and later reformed the criminal “Atlas Organization” into a spy outfit for the good guys.
OK, so, not wearing a S.H.I.E.L.D. “suit” doesn’t necessarily mean Woo isn’t a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Either current or former, as has been speculated since his character was first announced. Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross is never shown in a S.H.I.E.L.D. suit like the ones we see in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So that’s not too conclusive.
There’s still a possibility that – if not currently in S.H.I.E.L.D. – Woo is with another organization following the fall of HYDRA in Captain America: Winter Soldier.
In either case, it’s cool to see a legacy character finally get his due onscreen.

10 Superheroes You Didn’t Know Were In The Fantastic Four
It may sound counter-intuitive, but the Fantastic Four has had more than four members over the years. Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and The Thing are the core of the team, but various superheroes have joined Marvel’s first family over the years. While they may be a superhero team, the Fantastic Four are closer to a group of explorers who have to rely on each other and use their wits to get out of sticky situations.
Whether the core members are lost in space or Reed and Susan just need some time away to work on their marriage, the Fantastic Four still have responsibilities. Crime never sleeps, and without the Fantastic Four keeping the world safe, even more villains would hatch their villainous plots. Whether it’s The Thing or someone else yelling, “it’s clobbering time,” the truth stands that the Fantastic Four will always be there to save the day.
