Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Director Cuts Cameo of an Actor

Ant-Man 3

Like any MCU project, some roles get cut, but one cameo never made it into any of Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man movies. The movie recently showed off footage at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and it certainly left an enduring impression on the audience.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed appeared on THE BEST SHOW with Tom Scharpling, where the director came to break the news to his friend, and host of the show, that his cameo in the upcoming Marvel Studios had been cut.

The director mentioned how he “was not expecting to do this in real-time” but that Scharpling’s cameo “had to be cut:”

“Now you and I, Tom, we had a conversation about… there’s a pickup shoot coming… September 17th, which you, I think, once we spoke last week said you might be able to do… the reason I came by tonight… I was not expecting to do this in real-time, but– and this is often serious. I’m not… this is not a gag. this is serious right now. therefore the scene we were planning to shoot, which was going to be, this is not a spoiler, but it was going to be in San Francisco. we have had to cut.”



When asked if he was serious, Reed pushed on, noting that thanks to “editorial” and “some budgetary issues with that particular thing,” it truly had to be cut:

“This is serious, but we were supposed to shoot it. And again, through editorial and there are some budgetary issues with that particular thing. it was a very quick scene, but as you and I discussed, it was a very clear, ‘Okay, this is the one… We’re gonna get you,’ and now, um…”

Well, this conversation could all be in jest, despite Peyton Reed claiming otherwise. Reed has been known to do comedic bits about his films with the likes of Scharpling and other comedians. So, the 2 could just be joking, either about cutting the scene or perhaps filming the cameo entirely.


Beyond these appearances, the director further teased that the events of Quantumania will have a significant effect on the sprawling superhero franchise since the film is the official start of Phase 5.
