Ant-Man and The Wasp will take palace before Avengers: Infinity War, but it will feature a big connection to the upcoming Avengers 4.
While the two heroes aren’t around in Infinity War, they will be instrumental parts of setting things right after Thanos wiped out half the universe. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige recently addressed Ant-Man and The Wasp’s connection to the upcoming Marvel epic.
Ant-Man and The Wasp also connect directly to Avengers 4,” Feige said. “These characters are going to be very important going forward.”
We previously knew Ant-Man was going to be involved with the as yet untitled Avengers 4, as he has been seen in set photos from the film. Alongside Captain America, Iron Man, and Hulk, Ant-Man can be seen wearing a wrist device that some are theorizing allows for limited time travel. Wasp has not been seen on the set, but it seems she will be just as important setting things right as Ant-Man is.
What part Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne play in Avengers 4 remains to be seen, if the two are even featured in it, but at least we know Marvel isn’t sleeping on Ant-Man and Wasp. As for the film, while it won’t have all the answers fans are looking for after Infinity War, it will have enough of a connection that fans won’t want to miss out.

“Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father.
