The Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of sidekick characters that grab the hearts of fans every time they are on screen. Few have more appeal than CIA agent, magician, and friend... Jimmy Woo.
After his first appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp, Randall Park's character has become a household name for MCU fans everywhere. His role in WandaVision took him from a lovable auxiliary piece to a Hall of Fame role player.
Now, at D23 Expo, fans know when the MC-Woo will be in full effect again.
Jimmy Woo Returns in Ant-Man 3
During the Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania panel of Marvel Studios segment at D23, it was confirmed that Randall Park will return as James E. Woo in the Ant-Man and The Wasp sequel.
A trailer was shown at the event exclusively featuring Jonathan Majors as Kang and revealing the plot of the film.
The same trailer showed Scott Lang having lunch with Woo at the beginning.
King Woo Has Returned
While the news of Jimmy Woo returning in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantamania is not unexpected, it is cause for celebration. The MCU faithful make it very apparent which sidekick characters they want more of and Marvel Studios always responds.
One of the greatest elements of WandaVision was the utilization of Infinity Saga sidekick legends Jimmy Woo and Darcy Lewis. That began a trend of sidekick dominance in Phase 4, adding unprecedented depth to the MCU roster.
Owen Wilson's Mobius in Loki, Ben Kingsley's Trevor Slattery in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Haris Patel's Karun in Eternals, the LARPers in Hawkeye, not to mention Jacob Batalan's Ned Leeds in Spider-Man: No Way Home all shined in their moments during Phase 4.
Not to mention the sidekick that has taken over and become the Multiverse Saga's Phil Coulson, Wongers. Who has made four Phase 4 appearances before What If..?
(Moment of silence for those who just realized where Wong is heading in The Multiverse Saga.)
Jimmy Woo went from cult classic to internet darling during his time on WandaVision, and his return for Ant-Man 3 will surely be just as exciting for fans.
Randall Park and Scott Lang discussing the time between Avengers: Endgame and now has become one of the most anticipated scenes in Phase 5.
