Depart a Remark
Through the years within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve definitely discovered there isn’t any single position, irrespective of how small, that’s restricted to the film an actor is solid in. Heck, Gwyneth Paltrow signed on for the Iron Man films and famously forgot she confirmed up in a Spider-Man film. Over the previous decade, Marvel has finished every kind of sneaky issues to maintain all its movies interconnected.
Again in 2013, Invoice & Ted actor William Sadler portrayed the fictional U.S. President Ellis in Iron Man 3 and later returned for a number of appearances in ABC’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. It seems he additionally filmed one thing for 2015’s Ant-Man that by no means noticed the sunshine of day. In his phrases:
I truly shot a factor for Ant-Man. I shot a little bit of President Matthew Ellis for Ant-Man however they determined to make use of a special President, I do not know. It was fairly foolish.

It is also fascinating that of all the films, it was Ant-Man he was going to return again for – a smaller scale heist movie, so far as the universe is anxious.
In some methods, it is sensible although. Earlier than the MCU, the president displaying up in a comic book e-book film, or any motion film for that matter, to present an enormous speech or type some sort of irritated relationship with our hero had turn into a cliché in films that the studio could have needed to get away from.
