According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will become on of a handful of actors to play multiple roles in the MCU. Other examples include Gemma Chan, who headlined The Eternals as Sersi and plays Minn-Evra in Captain Marvel, and Mahershala Ali, who played Commonmouth in Luke Cage and is set to play the title character in Blade.

Dastmalchian is a regular in the films of director Denis Villeneuve, starring in Prisoners, Blade Runner 2049, and Dune. Since his against-type role as Kurt in Ant-Man, he has continued to star in blockbuster movies like The Suicide Squad. He is also set to star in Oppenheimer and The Last Voyage of Demeter in 2023.

A new trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania just arrived and here's everything you need to know about the upcoming superhero flick. The third Ant-Man movie will release on February 17, launch the fifth phase of the MCU, and set the stage for the Avengers movie Legacy of Kang in 2025.
