Fans were elated when it was announced that Laurence Fishburne would play Dr. Bill Foster in Ant-Man and the Wasp, but the actor today revealed the role is just the beginning of his relationship with Marvel. Speaking to Collider, Fishburne teased another project he's working on with Marvel besides the Ant-Man sequel.
"I’m developing something else for Marvel that I can’t talk about. It’s gonna be really cool. It’s gonna change the world, we hope (laughs)." Fishburne said. "I went to Marvel and pitched them something that really couldn’t work out -- there was a lot of legal red tape that just [was] something they couldn’t work out. But then they came back with the offer for Ant-Man and the Wasp and then they said, ‘Hey, what do you think of this?’ and I went ‘Oh yeah that, yes!’ so…”
There's no hints as to whether it's a movie, a television series or a comic book, but the actor definitely seems enthused about the prospect of working with Marvel again.
Bill Foster is Goliath in Marvel Comics, a close friend of Hank Pym's. Foster became the second Giant-Man before assuming the identity of Goliath. The character met his end during the Civil War event.
Debuting in theaters on July 6, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp is a production of Marvel Studios directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park and Walton Goggins.
