David Harbour hooked fans when he announced that he will be featuring in a horror comedy on Netflix. Another movie, although not on Netflix, that had fans waiting for a long time was Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Apart from their release dates falling in February and both having a stellar cast, there isn’t much that the movies have in common with each other. That’s what we thought until David Harbour was asked to describe We Have a Ghost in fifteen seconds without any spoilers. And fans have finally cracked the mystery of why Michael Pena was missing from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

As David Harbour easily describes what his movie, in which he is essentially a ghost, is about, fans hear Michael Pena speaking through him. The way he goes on about “Daddy Anthony Mackie” sounded very similar to Michael Pena saying, “crazy, stupid, fine,” and the only plausible explanation behind Pena missing from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has to be that he has currently taken over David Harbour’s body.

The similarities in their storytelling are hilarious and are probably the only crossover that we can imagine between the two powerhouses. Fans could not hide their frown as they reached the end credits of Ant-Man’s latest movie without getting the most enlightening recap from their beloved Michael Pena.

Michael Pena, who plays the character of Luis in Ant-Man’s world, as we like to believe, is a reincarnation of the Internet’s Pepe Silvia meme where Charlie from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia almost loses his marbles as he connects one ridiculous clue to the next. Except that Michael Pena does so effortlessly.

Naturally, his absence from the latest Ant-Man movie did not sit well with fans. And finally Peyton Reed had to step in to clear up that Pena had not been hijacking David Harbour’s body during the We Have a Ghost promotions but is just minding his business. The reason behind his absence in the movie was revealed to be the addition of new characters and limited runtime.
