Ant-Man And The Wasp Producer Explains Where It Falls On The MCU Timeline


With so many different movies making up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, audiences may have taken it for granted that everything unfold linearly. That said, we find it important none forget the anomalies in the bunch, such as The Incredible Hulk taking place after Iron Man and its sequel, despite its theatrical release being sandwiched between the two.

As such, much speculation has been circling Ant-Man and the Wasp, which arrives in cinemas months after the game-changing ending boasted by Avengers: Infinity War. I mean, it appears that Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne are safe for the time being due to the Peyton Reed directed flick standing on its own two legs, but there are still questions raised when discussing where it may fall on the MCU timeline.

Well, according to, Ant-Man and the Wasp will take place at some point between the respective events shown in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, with producer Stephen Broussard telling the outlet the plot will span “a little bit more than one day. It’s a finite period of time, you know. Where it falls in the timeline I kind of don’t want to say too much. I don’t know. I’d rather movies be sequences as they come out but we play with that a little bit.”

Understandably, Broussard is playing it coy, though it’s probably more than safe to say this’ll be its own thing for the most part. But as usual, moviegoers will likely want to stick around after the credits. Who knows, maybe we’ll be provided a few more hints as to what Avengers 4 may have in store?

Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in theaters on July 6th.
