Fans Claim Michael Peña’s Luis, David Dastmalchian’s Kurt Could Have Saved Ant-Man 3

Ant-Man 3 was one of the most anticipated films of the year as Jonathan Majors would be appearing as Kang the Conqueror, the third installment starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly would kickstart the next phase of the MCU in the multiverse, however, the film has been an awful movie so bad that it has the same review as the Eternals.

But, the MCU fans believed that Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian’s characters would have made the film a little more entertaining, as the side characters are interesting and have made the previous two Ant-Man films quite hilarious because of their role, and their absence added to the disappointment of the film.

He explained that there were ‘no versions’ of the film had Luis in it because the third movie would kick start the multiverse saga and therefore the film would have only relevant characters in the film and had to take the hard decision of letting go stories he wouldn’t like in the movie.

“We obviously have our Lang, van Dyne and Pym family, but then we also introduced Kang, MODOK and all of our Freedom Fighter characters. So we had to make decisions early on about what stories we could tell and what stories we couldn’t tell.”
