It’s been a while since it was announced that William Jackson Harper was joining the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and though we didn’t get a look at him in the trailer, a new image from Empire reveals his character named ‘Quaz’.
Check this out:
We don’t know much about the character of Quaz yet, but Empire did write:
“What we do know about Quaz is that he’s a telepath – and he’s pictured here with Katy M. O’Brian’s Jentorra, a freedom fighter who’s railing against injustice felt by the teeming communities living in the minuscule metropolis.”
When Harper was first cast, a lot of fans thought he was going to be some version of Reed Richards (of the Fantastic Four), but with this confirmation, I guess he could be someone completely different. There is a Marvel character called Quasar, and his powers have something to do with Quantum energy, so maybe this could be a version of that character.
With Harper cast in the film, fans were hoping he got a more significant character to play, but I guess there’s no harm in making an obscure character entirely your own. That’s kind of what happened with the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy, and now they’re the definitive version that the comics are drawing from.
