Marvel’s Jimmy Woo Actor Randall Park Flaunts His Spoiler Resistance

Ant-Man and Aquaman star Randall Park boasts that he is “not afraid” of inadvertently letting MCU and DCEU spoilers slip, telling fans to “try me”.

In a world filled with spoilers, Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe actor Randall Park has flaunted his rarefied ability to keep franchise secrets neatly under wraps. An actor and comedian with a long list of screen credits to his name, Park gained mainstream popularity in 2012 by playing a prank replacement of John Krasinski’s Jim Halpert in an episode of The Office. In 2018 Park became one of the few actors who could claim they appeared simultaneously in both the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes, playing both Agent Jimmy Woo in Ant-Man and the Wasp and Dr Stephen Shin in Aquaman.

After his turn in the Ant-Man sequel, Park’s character quickly became a fan-favorite and would eventually return alongside Kat Dennings’ Thor character Darcy Lewis in Marvel’s first interconnected MCU television series, WandaVision. So popular did the pairing become that social media was inundated with calls for an X-Files-style Jimmy Woo and Darcy spinoff series during WandaVision’s initial run on Disney+. While it would seem unlikely such a series will ever come to pass, Park’s Jimmy Woo is confirmed to be appearing in next year’s Ant-Man: Quantumania. Similarly, his DCEU character Dr Stephen Shin will also return for next year’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

While Park currently holds a much-coveted position in two competing cinematic universes, he is insistent that he will not be the one responsible for leaking any franchise secrets. During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel’s Jimmy Woo actor claimed he was not afraid of revealing any spoilers “because I’m so good”. Check out his full comments below:

Oh gosh, you know, I’m not afraid of either, because I’m so good. I’m so good, and, uh, you know, I love being a part of both universes, so I’m not going to let anything slip. So you can try me. Nothing will slip.

Marvel Actors Have A Hilarious History Of Spoilers

Though Park may be confident in his ability to keep himself from leaking any spoilers, not all his fellow Marvel stars can boast the same. Both Spider-Man’s Tom Holland and the Hulk’s Mark Ruffalo have repeatedly found themselves in hot water over comments they made while promoting their films. Among many other faux pas, Holland once famously let slip that Spider-Man would be going into space during the events of Infinity War, while Ruffalo would even spoil the ending of the highly anticipated Avengers outing prior to its release.

So frequent were Holland’s and Ruffalo’s slip-ups, that other Marvel stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Don Cheadle often found themselves having to step in during press commitments to prevent the pair from revealing too much. Thankfully, Holland, at least, seems to have learned his lesson and once likened the secrecy requirements on Spider-Man: No Way Home to being a member of the Suicide Squad, claiming that Marvel Studios would kill him if he revealed any spoilers. At least the powers behind both the MCU and DCEU can rest easy knowing that Park will not be following Holland’s and Ruffalo’s example, and he is confident that he can keep any important details firmly under wraps heading into his Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania return on February 17.
