Kathyrn Newton made her MCU debut as Scott Lang's daughter, Cassie, in the recent Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but it turns out the Freaky actress was originally up for a completely different Marvel Comics character.
A clip from a new Ant-Man 3 behind-the-scenes featurette has been shared online, and in it, director Peyton Reed reveals that Newton actually tested for the role of Kate Bishop in the Disney+ Hawkeye series.
Of course, Hailee Steinfeld ultimately played Bishop in the show, but if recent rumors are to be believed, both actresses will eventually collaborate on a Young Avengers project.
Check out the brief clip, which shows Newton screen-testing with Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), below.
Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought possible.
Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania also stars Jonathan Majors as Kang, David Dastmalchian as Veb, Katy O'Brian as Jentorra, William Jackson Harper as Quaz and Bill Murray as Lord Krylar.
The MCU threequel is now available to stream on Disney+.
