‘Avengers’ Actress Seemingly Found Out Her Part Had Been Recast in a Tweet

Sometimes a savvy actor will take a relatively minor role in a film because they realize the character will have an expanded role in any potential sequels, like Tom Cruise playing Lestat in Interview with the Vampire. Sometimes that decision doesn’t work out the way they had hoped, like Tom Cruise playing Lestat in Interview with the Vampire.

Emma Fuhrmann took a very small role in Avengers: Endgame as Cassie Lang, the now-teenage daughter of Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man. In the comics, Cassie Lang becomes Stature, a member of the Young Avengers who has an innate size-changing ability caused by exposure to the Pym particles Ant-Man and The Wasp use to shrink and grow.

It seems like Fuhrmann was hoping the brief appearance in Endgame would catapult her into some giant superhero shoes, but Marvel announced that Kathryn Newton would be playing Cassie in the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, which really seemed to bum Fuhrmann out.

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. 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.

It kind of sucks that she seemingly found out the part was recast along with the rest of us, Hollywood doesn’t seem big on telling actors when they’re not getting a role, they just let them read it in the trades that someone else got cast.

There are like a million X-Men, though, and Emma seems like she’d make a great Paige Guthrie or maybe even Kitty Pryde, who deserves to finally be the major character on-screen she is in the comic. At least let the girl be Boom-Boom or Blink, Disney.
