Kathryn Newton has officially kickstarted her Marvel Cinematic Universe journey as Cassie Lang in the Ant-Man franchise and while many are excited to see what she brings to the table, some fans haven't given her the warm reception she deserves.
You see, the rising star's involvement in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania came as a shock to many because Emma Fuhrmann, the actress who played Scott Lang's daughter in Avengers: Endgame was expected to return in the third film.
Now, it appears that Newton still hasn't won the hearts of many within the MCU fandom, and following the release of Quantumania, the Freaky actress is received massive criticism online for her portrayal of Cassie.
On Twitter, user @ABhi17ek said that Fuhrmann's brief appearance in Endgame was night and day compared to Newton's entire performance in Ant-Man 3. The user wrote: "Emma Fuhrmann's 5 minute portrayal of Cassie Lang in ENDGAME had more emotional depth than the whole 2 hours that Kathryn Newton gave in QUANTUMANIA".
Surprisingly, many agreed with the user's sentiments and it just goes to show that a lot of folks are still crossed over Emma's removal from the billion-dollar franchise. Check it out here:

While it's incredibly saddening that Fuhrmann had to be recast, none of it was Newton's fault and if anything, she doesn't deserve all the hate that has been thrown at her. Hopefully, the fans will eventually warm up to her because I personally think that she has done the Cassie role justice.
As for Furhmann, I hope she eventually lands a role in the MCU because she was criminally dropped by the studio.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is now showing in cinemas.
