Ant-Man and the Wasp has nabbed Randall Park for a role straight from the comics.

In director Peyton Reed’s Marvel sequel, the Fresh Off the Boat star will play S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo, EW has confirmed.

Park joins returning cast members Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas, as well as new addition Hannah John-Kamen.

“I can say Ant-Man and The Wasp is going to do things in the Marvel universe that they haven’t gotten an opportunity to do yet, and I just got some tidbits the other day, and they’re mind-blowing,” Dastmalchian, who portrays Kurt, told EW in May. “It’s going to be really cool.”

In addition to starring as lovable dad Louis Huang on his ABC sitcom, Park has been busy on the big screen with roles in recent comedies Snatched and The House, plus an appearance in the upcoming James Franco-directed The Disaster Artist.

Ant-Man and The Wasp flies into theaters on July 6, 2018.
