Does Ant-Man and The Wasp Match Up With the MCU Timeline?

Does Ant-Man and The Wasp Match Up With the MCU Timeline?

According to a Vox article, Ant-Man and the Wasp has two end credits scenes - one appearing during the mid-credits and another at the very end, as has been typical of Marvel movies.

This doesn't quite answer why Ant-Man wasn't in the battle at Wakanda, but it does set up where he is in Avengers 4, and it's particularly intriguing that he's trapped in the Quantum Realm. They were handed boards with Google's most pressing questions around the movie, its storyline and characters, and information about the actors themselves. And where, oh where, was Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)?

Still, that ballsy decision speaks to how well the MCU has trained moviegoers to stick around until the end of the credits - clearly the studio isn't too anxious that fans would rush out early, especially since the rest of Ant-Man and The Wasp resolutely avoids making any reference to Thanos or the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Since they are under house arrest, they can not participate in the fight in Infinity War.

Marvel chief Kevin Feige had previously said that the film would directly connect to Avengers 4, which has been touted as the conclusion to the 10-year story that we've seen unfold in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Scott also violated his parole. All is resolved with no hint that Thanos has yet attacked Earth.

The mid-credits scene is the one that has the most significance to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because it shows Scott Lang fiddling about inside the Quantum Realm, which the film tells us is a very unsafe place. This sequel to 2015's Ant-Man reunites audiences with titular hero Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), still working alongside Hope van Dyne, a.k.a. the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), and her dad Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Scott, Hope, Hank and Janet are working on an experiment, seemingly blissfully unaware of the impending doom.

Director Peyton Reed told TheWrap that in figuring out what the Quantum Realm could be and where it could lead, he realized the possibilities were endless. Like dozens of characters in Avengers: Infinity War, they have disintegrated and floated away. We also learned that spending enough time in the Quantum Realm alters one physiology and can imbue a person with the ability to control-or at least manipulate-quantum particles in people's bodies. (Hope makes fun of Scott for calling Captain America by the nickname "Cap" throughout the movie.) Or maybe there simply wasn't time to alert him.
