CS Soapbox: Why Ken Jeong Should Replace T.I. in Ant-Man 3
With 50% of most living creatures destroyed of existence, a savior was needed by the universe in Avengers: Endgame . Enter U Store ’s (Self Storage) resident security dude, who managed to get easy for Ant-Man to capitalize on his return from the Quantum Realm. Scott Lang would continue to greatly help save the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it is well known by us, however, not before Ken Jeong’s security guard freed him from the sidekick is necessary by that warehouse prison-every hero.
Jeong’s Endgame appearance was section of a number of related cameos in the MCU. Before directing Captain America: THE WINTERTIME Soldier , the Russo brothers done the NBC sitcom Community . If they were hired by Marvel Studios, they brought some Community alum alongside them.
Following Danny Pudi’s cameo in THE WINTERTIME Soldier , Community cameos became sort of running joke in the MCU; everyone from Yvette Nicole Brown (also in Endgame ), Donald Glover, and Jim Rash to Aaron Himelstein and DC Pierson have came out (Brie Larson and Randall Park have even become recurring characters). Now, there’s a chance for Jeong’s security guard to become full-fledged character in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania .

If you haven’t heard, T.I. will never be returning alongside Paul Rudd in the threequel. The news headlines comes amidst allegations contrary to the rapper/actor and his wife for “sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, harassment and assault.” T.I. was formally announced as an ingredient of  never; Ant-Man 3 so he might not need been the right section of the film to begin with. However, it appears unlikely the writers wouldn’t desire to keep carefully the franchise’s comedic trifecta intact.
T.I. debuted alongside Scott’s friend Luis (Michael Peña) as fellow ex-con Dave. In Ant-Man and the Wasp , Scott, Luis (Michael Peña), Dave, and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) ran a security company astutely named Ex-Con. Having said that, if Scott’s crew will probably remain full require a new quirky character it’ll, and who much better than Jeong’s inaudible security guard having an affinity for JG Ballard’s The Terminal Beach ?
After “Security Guard” got Scott from the storage cage, that they had some interaction offscreen presumably. He told Scott about Thanos probably, days gone by five years, and perhaps they talked just a little shop even. In the end, they’re both in the security game-which is excatly why it seems sensible for Scott, having lost Dave, to create his new friend in to the fold as a hilarious foil to Kurt and Luis. In fact, it creates so much sense, it’s probably already happening.

With over twenty years of acting credits, Jeong has generated comedic chemistry with much everyone pretty. We have a tendency to associate him with belligerent characters like The Hangover ’s Mr. Chow, crying “toodle-oo motherf*ckers” within an exaggerated accent. Despite limited screen time, he appears to steal the show always. From appearances in Crazy Rich Asians , Community as a tyrant hell-bent on Greendale domination, or across from Rudd in  even; Role Models , and dealing with Peña recently in Tom and Jerry , Jeong is made for larger-than-life supporting roles. However, he didn’t will have to be loud to obtain his point across. Sometimes all it requires is 9 seconds of silence and a Tom Selleck stache.
We took notice of Endgame ’s intrepid defender of storage. So, ditch the hat and present the man a genuine name. Since Endgame was the Russos’ last Marvel film reportedly, the move would solidify Greendale Community College’s unspoken hold on the MCU-a subtle reminder of the cinematic universe’s best entries. In Ant-Man 3 his character could possibly be nuanced, awkward and nerdy (for insufficient an improved word), worth the science fiction he reads. A turn much like when he donned the white coat for his sitcom Dr. Ken . With a villain as infectious as Kang the Conqueror coming, a hero, or rather, a sidekick, is what the physician ordered just.
