“In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. For me, the thing was quite clear, I got to know the director, and really liked him. He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director,” Murray added.
Bill Murray is stepping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The star hinted that he might appear in the upcoming Marvel film, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania. As per reports, while promoting his role in Wes Anderson’s latest outing The French Dispatch, the actor, 71, said in an interview that he recently shot for a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Murray said, “You know, recently I made a Marvel movie,” before seeming to regret the disclosure. Still, Murray pressed on, explaining that despite the MCU not being his normal thing, he was wooed to join the movie directed by Peyton Reed. “In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. For me, the thing was quite clear, I got to know the director, and really liked him. He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director,” Murray added.
While Murray did not mention Reed’s name, he did cite “the cheerleader story, Bring It On” — which was directed by Reed — as a “damn good” film. Several stars are set to reprise their roles from previous Ant-Man movies in the upcoming movie, including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer. But unlike these actors, fans should not expect Murray to become a fixture of the MCU. “Let’s put it this way, the director is a good guy, and now I’ve at least tried out what it’s like to shoot a Marvel movie, but I don’t think I need that experience a second time.”
