Ant-Man 3's teaser trailer surprised everyone when it featured Murray's character as one of the inhabitants of the Quantum Realm. Quantumania director Peyton Reed then teased that the Ghostbusters actor will have a "crucial" role in the threequel, confirming that he plays "a character from Janet Van Dyne's past."
Marvel Studios then unveiled that Murray is portraying Lord Krylar, the governor of a "bizarre and cushy community" in the Quantum Realm called Axia.
Now, another marketing blast pushed the acting veteran to the forefront.

Will Bill Murray's MCU Character Help Team Ant-Man?
It is unknown if Bill Murray's MCU character is an ally or villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, considering that there is only minimal footage of Lord Krylar in the film's latest promotional blast.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously revealed that Janet was a "very powerful freedom fighter" in the Quantum Realm, indicating that she was a member of the rebellion against Kang the Conqueror. That said, Murray's Lord Krylar may be more of an ally than an enemy, mainly because he has a past partnership with Janet.
However, there's still a chance that Murray's Marvel character could betray Team Ant-Man for Kang since the time-traveling villain may have already convinced the governor of Axia of the gift of time, similar to what he is promising to Scott Lang.
Whatever the case, it's safe to say that Lord Krylar will have a special role in Team Ant-Man's clash against Kang the Conqueror.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to premiere in theaters on Friday, February 17.
