Originally, when TheTrackingBoard reported that actor/comedian Randall Park had landed the role of Marvel legacy character Jimmy Woo (created in the 1950s) in Ant-Man and The Wasp, he was mentioned as a possible SHIELD Agent. Although, SHIELD has been established to be gone in the MCU (despite what is going on in the TV side of things).
Well, a new Marvel Studios job search might be clearing things up a bit. As the studio is now currently looking for a real FBI advisor for the film. Woo started off as a FBI Agent, since when he was introduced SHIELD hadn’t even been invented. The job posting comes from our friends over at ProjectCasting which we spotted this morning.
