Quan, who had a massive career resurgence last year revealed that Kevin Feige personally gave him a call to ask if he was down to become part of the MCU. Appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Indiana Jones star shared new details about his Marvel casting and why he accepted the offer right away.

He said: "When our movie came out, the first phone call I got was from Kevin Feige, who graciously asked me if I wanted to join the MCU and I called Jonathan and the gang, and I said, you know what, nobody wants to hire me except Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas, The Daniels, and Kevin Feige. It's been incredible. 2022 is the year I will always remember because it's one of the happiest years of my life."
