‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ Adds Randall Park As Legacy Hero Jimmy Woo

Our friends over at TrackingBoard report that comedian Randall Park has landed the major role of Asian-America hero Jimmy Woo in Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man And The Wasp.

The character is a legacy hero, as he was first introduced in 1956 at Atlas Comics, a segment of the pre-Marvel company. Other Marvel heroes that started at Atlas included characters like Human Torch and The Sub-Mariner.

Woo’s addition might be more telling than at first glance like we’ve seen with other known character additions in supporting roles.

Jimmy might have connections to SHIELD, but he also has links to the superheroes like his team the Agents of Atlas. That team happens to include Namor The Sub-Mariner‘s cousin Namora. His introduction could suggest Marvel might tackle Agents of Atlas or support the rumors of Marvel actually developing a Namor solo film. Two projects that could make a lot of sense with Marvel Studios looking at introducing a wave of new heroes for Phase Four and beyond.
