Expect more humor in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp‘ as funnyman Sean Kleier (‘Odd Mom Out’,’Happyish’) has just joined the film’s cast. Coming out directly after ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, we’ll likely be getting a large dose of humor to help offset the seriousness that Thanos is going to be bringing to the table. We already know that Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, and Judy Greer will be reprising their roles in the film but we’ll see him joining new additions such as Michelle Pfeiffer as the original Wasp, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Laurence Fishburne as Goliath and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.
As Jimmy Woo is usually associated with spy agencies and most recently S.H.I.E.L.D., it almost makes you wonder if the organization will be making a return in this film. Especially as Kleier is stated to be a special agent that is “the ‘mole’ of the story.” While this could lean towards not just a return of S.H.I.E.L.D. which would make fans of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ happy if the TV and cinematic universes start to come into sync again, my money is on this being a new or different agency. Of course, Woo and Kleier’s unnamed character could also be at odds. Being a mole could mean that he’s either a villain trying to get close to our heroes or someone who wants to use our unlikely heroes to get to the villain.
With filming on ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ having already begun it could mean that Kleier will have a minor part in the film though there have been many agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or other agencies which have gone on to become heroes or villains in their own right.
Who do you think Sean Kleier will be playing in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’? Is this more proof that S.H.I.E.L.D. will be getting a cinematic presence once more? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ will be released on July 6th, 2018!
