Here’s a rather curious little detail. On the site Mandy, which helps smaller actors find work within the industry, there’s a rather curious listing. Actor John Townsend has a listing for working on a film from 2021 until 2022 as a photo double. Not just that, he would act as a double for Bill Murray. The film’s name isn’t listed, but the production name Dust Bunny gives us a clear indication of which film it is. It was back in April that we learned that this production title belongs to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Mandy has been a source to tease future appearances in the past. In July, a listing hinted at a possible Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness connection with Namor due to a listing of the character Gargantos 2. We still should take it with a bit of a grain of salt until an official announcement arrives, but the inclusion is rather curious. There’s a good chance that it might change once anyone at Marvel realizes that Murray‘s name is included in their credits. What helps matters is that director Peyton Reed is quite the fan of the actor and shared a signature he got. So, it wouldn’t be too surprising that he’d hope for him to join the production.
Still, Bill Murray is one of those legacy actors that would make for an incredible addition to the franchise. The actor has made a name in the industry with classics like Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Caddyshack, and so many more. He is currently set to return in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife film that builds upon the original franchise from 1984. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of role he could have in a comedy-focused franchise like the Ant-Man and the Wasp films.
