Marvel Cinematic Universe has bought to us a number of characters. The list is dominated by the amount of Superheroes we truly adore. Who doesn’t want to be a Superhero in real life? Guess everyone does but there is also an alternate way to be one. Being a part of a superhero movie might not be enough to make you feel like one but it surely isn’t something one might overlook.
One such superhero in the MCU is Ant-Man. He might not be much hyped like the others but it surely provides some of the greatest supporting characters. Luis, played by Michael Pena, Jimmy Woo, played by Randall Park, and Maggie Lang, played by Judy Greer, all contribute tremendous value to their respective films. Greer has been a part of Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man universe since the beginning.
What’s awaiting for Judy Greer in the Superhero movies?
Judy Greer is no newbie to a big-budget movie franchise, and she has no intention of leaving it behind. In a recent interview with the Inside Disney Podcast, the Ant-Man actress expressed her desire for her character to “come back with a superpower,” even going so far as to ask Ant-Man series director Peyton Reed for the significant shift. Greer describes what it’s like to work on a Marvel Studios film set. She, like many other performers before her, praised the production’s “high-end” aspect.
“Well, I am still crossing my fingers that my character will come back with a superpower. I talked to Peyton Reed, the director, about it all the time. Well, I try to all the time. The thing about Marvel movies, it’s like, staying at a fancy hotel. And I mean that like it is “high-end”. Like everything is the best it can be. And Ant-Man, because Ant-Man is like, I call it a comedy. It’s a superhero movie, but it’s funny.”
