Judy Greer made her first MCU debut in 2015’s Ant-Man as Paul Rudd‘s Scott’s ex-wife Maggie Lang. However, after the 2018 sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp Greer has been completely missing from the ensuing movies in the MCU.

According to the official press release, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 introduces Judy Greer in a new avatar. That is as War Pig’s voice actor, who is one of the High Evolutionary’s henchmen. It should be mentioned here that the High Evolutionary is the geneticist who acted as a catalyst for Adam Warlock’s rebirth or reemergence from the cocoon, who is also set to make his debut with this movie through Will Poulter.

As a result, Judy Greer’s reappearance, although surprising, is not exactly out of left field as a lot of other artists are expected to return for cameos through that.

As a result, fans are expecting James Gunn to snowball however many cameos he wants to include in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Ironically, Nathan Fillion obviously has already secured a place in the movie alongside Jennifer Holland. However, who else there might be is a question that will only be answered after the movie’s release in a couple of days.
