When it was first revealed last year that legendary actor Bill Murray would be starring in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantamania, in an undisclosed villainous role, fans did not hold back on expressing their excitement of his involvement.
Ultimately, Murray played a very small character named Krylar from the comics, in an even smaller role in the final version of the film, leading to many fans upsettingly stating his talents were wasted in the film.
However, Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantamania actress Katy O'Brien, who played Jentorra in the film, revealed in a recent interview with Inverse, the initial role Murray's character had early on in the film's development, where apparently he:
“did a whole space pursuit and then wound up with Kang.” - Katy O'Brien, Inverse
The Marvel Studio's Japanese twitter page somewhat confirms this larger involvement in the film, as an almost 2 minute-long clip of behind-the-scenes shooting of the film, indicate more scenes of Murray's character had been shot.
A scene from the final cut of the film that looks familar, showing Kang The Conqueror, Scott Lang, Cassie Lang, and MODOK, standing over the edge of where the multiversal core for Kang The Conqueror's Time Chair is, now shows a behind-the-scenes look at an alterante version of how that scene would have played out with Krylar.
Seemingly, Kryler stands over the edge of the multiversal core cliff first in this version, and pushes a mystery alien standing alongside him down into the core. Perhaps this alien survived, where Krylar only pushed them down first to show Scott the fall is nothing to be afraid of, and he was instructed by Kang The Conqueror to do so.
Additionally, Krylar was involved in Jentorra's prison break scene, which then leads to the beginning of the rebellion against Kang The Conqueror and his army, indicating a potential change of heart in Krylar.
No reasoning regarding scrapping Krylar's further involvement in the film has been released, perhaps it being somewhat of a last minute decision by director Peyton Reed.
Either way, Bill Murray's involvement in the film had fans excited, and it is disappointing that this footage did not make it into the final cut of the film, as his character would have been much more compelling.
