A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Bill Murray would appear in Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Well now it seems that the legendary actor has confirmed that he is coming to the MCU.
During an interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Murray revealed the news.
“You know, recently I made a Marvel movie. I probably won’t tell you, but never mind. In any case, some people were quite surprised why I decided on such a project. But for me the thing was quite clear: I got to know the director – and really liked him very much,” Murray told the paper. “He was funny, humble, everything you want from a director. And with the cheerleader story Bring It On he made a movie years ago, which I think is damn good. So I agreed, although I’m not interested in these huge comic book adaptations as an actor otherwise.”

Marvel Studios’ newest film, Eternals, is not doing that well with critics. Through 123 reviews, the movie has earned a 60% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the lowest score ever for an MCU movie.
If these numbers hold, Eternals will become the fourth Marvel Studios movie (Thor: The Dark World 66%, The Incredible Hulk 67%, Iron Man 2 72%) to not receive a “designated fresh” seal of 75% or above.
Last week it was revealed that Marvel Studios shifted most of its upcoming film slate. Following the news, studio president Kevin Feige revealed that the delays had nothing to do with COVID-19 and instead were because of “production shifts and changes.” Well, we may have just found out the first film that will benefit from the delay.
During an interview with The Today Show this week, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange in the MCU, revealed that his upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will conduct reshoots in November and December.
