Ant Man Star Kathryn Newton Talks About How Her Character Cassie Lang Will Be Different In Ant Man 3
Appearing at Comic-Con for Marvel, Kathryn Newton gave an interview where she discussed Cassie Lang's development into becoming who she is in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Kathryn Newton will be appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as Cassie Lang, the daughter of Scott Lang, our very own Ant-Man. Her journey is a unique one but not a new one in the Marvel world as she wasn't the original actress who portrayed her, but it was Emma Fuhrmann. But like War Machine before her, the role has been recast and it is now all hers.
Not like this is some sort of downgrade in any way though, Kathryn Newton is a very talented and successful actress in her own right already, and I have no doubt she will do nothing but elevate the role to new heights. This will also continue the arc that Marvel has been slowly building as they continue down the road of revealing full and proper, The Young Avengers.
Appearing at SDCC, Kathryn talked with Deadline Hollywood and touched upon Cassie's growth and development during the 5 years of the blip. "You find my character Cassie Lang all grown up. She's been without her dad because of the Blight for like five years, and she thinks she knows who she is," Newton said. "She's got love in her heart and she's going after what she thinks is good, but she's making a lot of mistakes, as you do. But she's becoming who she is in this movie."
While a trailer for Quantumania was presented at Comic-Con, it has yet to be made available to the general public. The teaser teases a surprise appearance by Marvel villain M.O.D.O.K., played by Bill Murray and Paul Rudd's Scott Lang meeting adversary Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), whose entry was earlier previewed by Majors as the Loki variation He Who Remains. Cassie was also seen donning a purple shrinking suit alongside her father and Hope van Dyne in a new Quantumania poster, alluding to her destiny as the Marvel hero Stature.
By the end of the movie, undoubtedly Cassie Lang will finally reach her final destination and become the hero she was destined to be, just like her father. The exciting thing about that is that after that this will only increase the possibilities and opportunities for Cassie Lang to grow in the MCU. Maybe while her dad is doing podcasts she can handle the hero business. And Marvel would not tap up such a young, talented, on-the-rise actress for a one-off appearance or a measly no-nothing role, I am sure this is just the beginning of her adventure in the MCU and we will be seeing much more of her in the years to come.
