There Was a Funny Captain American Cameo Cut Out of ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Turns out, Captain America was originally supposed to make a cameo appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp. They ended up removing the character from their plan after the decision was made to make the film a standalone film that would focus on its own world. Director Peyton Reed explained to Radio Times:

"The idea was that this really wanted to be a little bit more standalone and in its own world. We knew that we wanted to continue the story of these characters and then introduce our own characters that were really far more relevant to the story we were telling....Plus the fact that we were coming right after Infinity War, which is really like everyone. With the exception of Ant-Man and the Wasp and, of course, Hawkeye."

The director then went on to share the details on the cameo Captain America would have made, and it would have been hilarious. He would have appeared in the scene where Louis re-tell's the story of Scott Lang going over to Germany in Captain America: Civil War and Chris Evans would have appeared similar in the way that Anthony Mackie's Falcon did in the first Ant-Man movie.

"Early on, we had a version where we were going to do a quick version of the tarmac fight from Civil War, with some ridiculous thing where, you know, Captain America has Ant-Man as a baseball and throws him. Because the whole thing is Luis’ version of events, right? We came up with all these ridiculous visuals."

I don't think that would have taken away from the story of Ant-Man and The Wasp at all, and I wish it would have been included because it would have been great! Would you have wanted to see this Captain America scene included in the movie?
