Ant-Man 3: Quantumania will be missing a “Wombat” when it hits screens in 2022. While Luis (Michael Peña) and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) are expected to return, rapper T.I. will not be invited back presumably because of multiple allegations of sexual assault against him and his wife Tiny (Tameka Harris).
T.I. played Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man ex-con sidekick Dave in the first two movies, along with fellow “Wombats.” The Hollywood Reporter first reported that the actor/rapper will not appear in the Marvel Studios threequel.
Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn requested authorities in California and Georgia to open investigations on behalf of 11 total alleged victims of the couple.
In January, Sabrina Peterson alleged T.I. put a gun to her head and she shared accusations from other women against the couple on Instagram. Peterson’s post opened the door for other victims to come forward. The 11 women do not know each other, yet they each share similar stories
T.I. and Tiny vehemently deny all the allegations. In a statement provided to Bilboard, “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson,”
Studios are taking the allegations seriously. VH1 halted production of the reality show T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle last month in light of claims against the couple.
