Laurence Fishburne, one of the stars of Ant-Man and the Wasp, has said that he would like to suit up as his character Goliath one day.
Just because you’re playing a superhero in 2018 doesn’t mean you get to sport an awesome looking costume straight from the comics. While many characters have faithful renditions of their costumes on screen, it’s not a given that you’ll get to suit up in your first outing.
Laurence Fishburne plays the character Bill Foster, aka Goliath, in Ant-Man and the Wasp, a character who has the ability to increase his size much like the original Ant-Man.
Fishburne, unfortunately, didn’t get to suit up in the movie, but the actor is hoping that will come at some point: “If it happens, if I get to suit up, great. If I don’t get to suit up, at least I’m in the MCU,” he told Den of Geek.
“I knew some of the story of Ant-Man. I knew, for example, I knew who Hank Pym was. I knew about the Pym Particles, and I knew about Janet van Dyne and Wasp. But I wasn’t a reader of those books. I did know who they were peripherally just because I read all the other books. But I thought it was such a great gift. It’s a beautiful character. It’s a beautiful way for me to enter into the universe.”
It’s always nice to hear that an actor is super passionate about being involved in a film or franchise and not just feigning interest in currently popular trends like superhero movies.
