Actor lost role after multiple accusations of sexual harassment and abuse
In recent days, rapper and actor Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., better known by his stage name TI, has been charged with multiple cases of sexual harassment and abuse. This information has been brought to the attention of Disney, and as a result, the star just lost his role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the third film in the Scott Lang franchise at MCU.
TI played ex-criminal Dave in the first two Ant-Man films. Dave is a friend of Kurt (David Dastmalchian) and Luis (Michael Peña), who assists Scott Lang on his adventures, in addition to helping him steal Hank Pym’s Ant-Man costume. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios and Disney have already fired the actor, although Peña and Dastmalchian have confirmed their return.
TI was accused along with his wife, Tameka Cottle, by eleven people. Alleged crimes include sexual harassment and abuse, intimidation, kidnapping and even forced narcotics. So far, the two have denied the charges and are under investigation by US justice.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is slated to hit theaters in 2022, although the exact release date has yet to be released. Peyton Reed returns in directing, with a cast consisting of Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton and Jonathan Majors.
