Marvel has earlier recast many of the roles in their franchise. Some of these being Hulk (Edward Norton to Mark Ruffalo), and James Rhodes (Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle). Additionally, Marvel even recast Thanos himself (Damion Poitier to Josh Brolin). Fuhrmann took the news in a good spirit. She also said that she is looking forwards to be in the MCU again if given chance.
Who is Kathryn Newton?
Character Cassie Lang is going to be back in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania. This hints the Cassie is going to have an important role this time as she is all grown up now. Newton and Fuhrmann both are up and coming actresses. To play a character in MCU is a huge opportunity for them. Also, this opportunity comes with a lot of responsibilities.
Newton is a bit more experienced actress as compared to Fuhrmann. She is well known for her roles in ‘Detective Pikachu’ and the recent film ‘Freaky’ with Vince Vaughn. Additionally, she appeared in the Academy Award-winning film ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’.
Now, it seems that Disney might feel a bit more comfortable going with a more experienced actress. The franchise is likely to expand Cassie’s role in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania. So, naturally, Newton seems like a better choice than Fuhrmann.
We will bring more details very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
