Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Offers First Look at William Jackson Harper
Published 2 weeks ago
A lot of fans were excited when it was announced that William Jackson Harper would be joining the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and though a lot of fans hoped that he was cast as Reed Richards, it turns out, he’s another citizen of the Quantum Realm.
Here’s a new image of Harper from Empire:

Harper is apparently playing a character named Quaz, and Empire describes him:
“What we do know about Quaz is that he’s a telepath – and he’s pictured here with Katy M. O’Brian’s Jentorra, a freedom fighter who’s railing against injustice felt by the teeming communities living in the minuscule metropolis.”
Though it does seem like Quaz is some random character created for the movie, Marvel comics does have a character named Quasar who is able to manipulate Quantum energy with his powers. Maybe Quaz is an early version of Quasar, but that’s just speculation on my part.
If anything, it’s not completely impossible for Quaz to be a lost Reed Richards in disguise. Since Kang would know who Reed was, it’s possible that Reed could be hiding so Kang wouldn’t be able to find him.
Until the movie comes out, all us fans can really do is guess.
Ant-Man and the Wasp find themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that pushes them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania comes to cinemas on Feb. 16.
