Bill Murray recently sat down for an interview with Faz.net and not-so-subtly revealed that he’s in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film. When asked about the importance of working with people in Hollywood that you enjoy being around personally, he used director Peyton Reed — the mind behind “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” — as an example. “I recently made a Marvel movie…In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project of all things. But for me it was very clear: I got to know the director – and I really liked him a lot. So I accepted.”
Murray notes that as an actor, comic book adaptations aren’t his cup of tea, so his interest in working with Reed was the driving factor in his decision to sign on. He was then asked if he regretted his decision to join the MCU, and the “Ghostbusters” star gave a very straightforward response: “Now I’ve at least tried what it’s like to make a Marvel movie. But I don’t think I need this experience a second time.” Nevertheless, he seemed happy to have worked with Reed on the upcoming sequel.
At the time of this writing, how Bill Murray could factor into “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” — and the MCU at large — remains to be seen. All that we know for sure is that chances are, this one-and-done venture for him.
