    Looks like all the guesses on who he'd play were wrong.

    I'm very counfused by this choice.
    Kingo is Japanesse + Samurai. that's his whole identity.
    so they're making kumali as Samurai? so random and there will be some backlash I guess..
    or is it just same name..?

    No idea. I reckon they’ll be taking some liberties with the script since none of the characters are exactly well known these days

    Sprite isn't a girl in the comics. Makkari isn't a woman or deaf in the comics. Ajak isn't a woman in the comics. Gilgamesh isn't Asian in the comics.

    It's safe to say Kingo will be different in this movie than he is in the comics.

    Kumail is going to do well in the role. Yes, he has a comedic background, but so did Paul Rudd. We all know how Rudd has worked out as Scott Lang.

    Dude is looking jacked these days. Didn’t expect him to bulk up.

    Hmmm. I kinda want to see him in the samurai outfit. I hope they go for that look.

    I feel like they might be more inspired by the Rajput warriors this time which might be cool. There’s already a ton of samurai type characters in the marvel mythos and it’s intriguing if this film is about different gods and faiths and origins of the world to include different religions like Hindu

    Anyway here’s what the Rajput looked like. This would be mega cool for Kumail

    It would be interesting if he's like Ramirez from Highlander; "born" in one country, but travelling the world adopting different warrior styles and identities: a rajput, a samurai, a mamluk, a minuteman, etc.

    As a male-identifying person, I can assure you it’s not just the women. :cwink:

    Very impressive, gun to my head were there Mexican supplements and Russian vitamins involved? Hell yeah lol but the guy would have still had to put in an insane amount of work to achieve these results, well done.

    He seems to have a good sense of humour about his new influx of thirsty fans lol

    I’m so glad I don’t have to do that for my work. After several months of a gruelling exercise regime I would still look like this

    I'm down for that, but only if Kumail maintains his Scottish accent.

    I’m very happy for him. Hope he gets a decent role in this.

    Kumail is getting into twitter trouble for defending himself from people. Will this affect him? Hope not.

    I doubt there's anything worse he's tweeted than what the people going after him now have done.
