Laurence Fishburne only had a few scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp but it was immediately established that Bill Foster managed to grow to massive proportions back in the day. Interestingly, it has been revealed that a scene featuring Goliath was almost included in the sequel.

One of the most hilarious sequences in Ant-Man and the Wasp involved Bill Foster proudly declaring that he was a part of a project called Goliath and sharing that he grew to 21 feet. Scott Lang countered that he made it up to 65 feet, prompting Hope van Dyne to make a reference about sizes. However, director Peyton Reed confessed on Empire Film Podcast that one of the original ideas for the sequel had a flashback scene confirming Foster's story.

"At one point we were going to have one brief flashback with young Hank Pym and young Bill Foster where he reaches his 21 feet in trying [to grow]. And it just felt, narratively, it just was too much of a left turn. As much as we felt like it might get a big cheer from a small percentage of Marvel Comics fans, it just was too far a reach. But who knows for the future."

It might seem like a minor thing but the idea of Foster becoming Goliath would have been awesome. The scene could also offer a glimpse at the working dynamic between Foster and Hank when they were younger. Although the sequence never made it to the film, fans are still hoping that Fishburne will reprise his role in future Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

The release of the Ant-Man and the Wasp DVD and Blu-Ray has not yet been announced. Nevertheless, the film's home release could be confirmed later this year.
