The third film in the 2015 movie series Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is just months away from its release. The film is expected to follow Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man and the Hope, aka the Wasp’s adventures into the Quantum Realm. Cassie Lang, Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne will also join them on their adventure in the Quantum Realm. The film will also introduce Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror, the supervillain for the upcoming phases of the MCU.

However, since the release of the trailer, fans have been curious if Scott Lang’s pals including Luis, Dave, and Kurt would join the Avenger in the threequel. And seems like they will also make a comeback to help their friend in Ant-Man 3.

Since the 2015 Ant-Man, Paul Rudd’s character was accompanied by his friends Luis, Dave, and Kurt. However, as the trailer of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was released fans couldn’t spot these characters anywhere in the trailer. The reports have also been claiming that the actors may not reprise their roles in the threequel.

Michael Peña has also not said anything clearly about his appearance in the film. But back in July David Dastmalchian, who played Kurt Goreshter in the first two movies, said that he would not be coming back in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

It doesn’t look like it… But that’s okay. I know they’re making something incredible. I can’t wait to see what Peyton does next,” Dastmalchian said.

However, as the release of the film is nearing, there are rumors that David Dastmalchian could possibly return for the Ant-Man 3. A Twitter post shared by Michael Kamens included the official theater standee for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The standee includes Dastmalchian in the cast of the film. This could come as a relief to fans who have been wanting to see Luis & the Gang in Ant-Man 3. However, there is still a possibility that these characters would have a minor role in the threequel.

Why Luis & the Gang May Not Have a Major Role Ant-Man 3?

When Michael Peña was asked if he would be appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the actor said, “I don’t even know why people ask.” While David Dastmalchian said that he would not be in Ant-Man 3, Peña tried to avoid the question.

This led fans to believe that he could appear in the threequel. The third member of the gang, Dave played by T.I. would also not be appearing in the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Marvel Studios dropped the actor after he was accused of sexual abuse.


The trailer shows Scott Lang, Cassie Lang, Hope, Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne getting sucked into the Quantum Realm. Considering that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will mostly take place in the Quantum Realm, it would probably lead Luis & the Gang to have a minor role in the film.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to release on February 17, 2023.
