Fresh Off the Boat star Randall Park is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Tracking Board revealed today that Park is joining the cast of the Ant-Man sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp. According to Tracking Board, Park is supposedly playing S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo from the comics.
If Park is indeed playing Jimmy Woo in the film, it will be interesting to see whether or not they will keep the S.H.I.E.L.D. aspect of the character, given the odd status the organization has in the movies right now, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Park is the second new cast member to join the Ant-Man sequel as it was reported last month that Black Mirror and Killjoy star Hannah John-Kamen had been cast in a “key role”.
Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne a.k.a. the Wasp, Michael Peña as Luis, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Hannah John-Kamen and Randall Park, is set to come out in theaters on July 6, 2018.

7 Big Potential Changes For The Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers 4’
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.
Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will probably never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.
