On the Disney Investor Day, 10 December 2020, Kevin Feige announced some major news, which brought all the excitement in the world of Marvel fans. He revealed some big upcoming projects that will be awaited by the fans, which includes a bunch of Star Wars projects, Disney+ shows, and movies. Apart from this, Kevin also announced the news that the upcoming sequel Ant-Man 3 would be called Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania. But the news that was a major shocker for the fans was about recasting; Emma Furhmann being replaced in Ant-Man 3 by 23-year-old Kathryn Newton for the role of Cassie Lang.
Emma Furhmann already played the role of Scott Lang’s daughter for Avenger’s Endgame, and fans had already found the emotional connection with her, so this wasn’t going to be a piece of easy news to take up for fans and Emma Furhmann herself.
Avengers: Endgame Emma Furhmann reacted to the news of being replaced in Ant-Man 3 in an emotional tweet. She expressed her gratitude for the experience, appreciation for her fans for reaching out to her, and sadness about the news of being recast.
Emma Furhmann tweeted on being replaced in Ant-Man 3:
“Just wanted to come on here & say that I see all your kind messages. Thank you for all your support. It has meant the world to me. I was as sad as you all were to hear the news Thursday. I can only hope that this means there is something else for me in the future of the MCU.”
In another tweet, Furhmann shows her gratitude for being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“I will always be grateful to have been a part of the MCU & the biggest movie of all time. Being an actress is still my #1 passion & I look forward to what the future holds. Xo Emma.”
Emma Furhmann’s tweet appears like she, too just like everyone else, was unaware of the news of being replaced in Antman-3.
Many of the fans have not really liked the news of Emma’s replacement and have shown their disappointment for MCU’s decision.
One of the fans showed a shook response by tweeting:
“wait wait this actress Emma Fuhrmann gave us the best scene of Endgame and they RECASTED HER IN ANT MAN 3???? cold.”
While another one showed how disappointed they were by the recasting:
Very sad for the recast made for the third ‘Ant-Man’ movie. Disappointed, @MarvelStudios. We will always dream of how great it would have been to see you as Stature. You will always be the Cassie Lang of our hearts, @EmmaFuhrmann. Best wishes for you & THANK YOU.
While Emma Furhmann won’t be a part of Antman-3, we can only hope to have her comeback in MCU’s universe in the upcoming storylines somehow.
