Michael Peña is a scene-stealer even when he’s not within the film. One of many largest speaking factors ever since Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania hit theaters final week has been the absence of Peña’s fan-favorite Luis from the familial adventures. Director Peyton Reed has mentioned his piece on the matter, however followers aren’t shopping for it.
Reed has revealed, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, that Luis was by no means within the plans for Quantumania, sadly. As a lot because the director loves the character, the truth that the core 5 can be going into the Quantum Realm so early on within the movie dominated out any chance of Luis’ participation. And moreover, there have been too many characters to introduce within the movie anyway.
“There have been no variations of this film [with Luis]. There are quite a lot of characters within the film. We clearly have our Lang, van Dyne and Pym household, however then we additionally launched Kang, MODOK and all of our Freedom Fighter characters. So we needed to make choices early on about what tales we might inform and what tales we couldn’t inform. “I like these characters. They have been actually, actually enjoyable and a part of the Lang household, however as we bought additional and additional into [development] and knew we needed to carry the household into the Quantum Realm fairly early within the film, it simply didn’t make sense [to include Luis and co.].””
It’s not unusual for Marvel followers to search out options which might be way more artistic than what we find yourself with within the films. Naturally, there was no scarcity of eventualities being recommended for the way Luis might have nonetheless been included within the movie, even with out going subatomic.
A post-credits scene is at all times an excellent reply, even when the movie already had two.
Finish credit score scene would have been superb – mainly.. minimize to Luis explaining loopy story about what occurred when he went to go go to Scott and located a barely alive MODOK who one way or the other was transported there.
At finish of his story… Madisynn walks in by way of a portal… MODOKERS!!!

It will make an ideal scene to incorporate him in Scott’s guide tour. One factor’s for certain, he would undoubtedly be a a lot better orator than the titular superhero.
they may’ve had him on the Scott Lang guide signing

Luis would have nice recommendation for Cassie. Quantumania was a missed alternative to point out him as the good uncle of all time.
And right here’s an effective way to carry him in. Have Scott ask him to dinner so Luis can inform Cassie about his time in jail to discourage her dangerous conduct.

Or just, simply have him tag together with the household into the Quantum Realm. Seeing Luis come face-to-face with Kang might have been hilarious.
It will’ve made good sense as a result of Luis is Scott’s greatest pal. They might’ve had Luis do some very attention-grabbing issues within the Quantum Realm.

All of this to say that, if Reed and author Jeff Loveness had actually needed Luis in Quantumania, they might have discovered a means, particularly since Peña has mentioned previously “it could be nice” to be within the third movie.
The Luis-less Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is now exhibiting in theaters.
