Kevin Feige Talks Ant-Man Fitting In MCU!

Yesterday, when Marvel unveiled a brand new trailer for Ant-Man at their Avengers: Age Of Ultron press event,  it was a huge hit – until Marvel decided to move on.

To fans, it seems like lately Marvel Studios have been only focused on promoting their new Avengers sequel. It makes it seem like Ant-Man, although it may be coming,  is sort of an afterthought.

“It’s not [an after thought],” Marvel President Kevin Feige assured Slash Film. “The truth is the phases mean a lot to me and some people but…Civil War is the start of Phase Three. It just is. And Ant-Man is a different kind of culmination of Phase Two because it very much is in the MCU.”

“You meet new characters and you learn about Hank Pym and his lineage with the MCU over the years,” Feige explained. “But at the same time, it also picks up the thread of Age of Ultronin terms of heroes – major heroes, Avengers – coming from unexpected places. Whether it’s prison in the case of Scott Lang or being a very disgruntled Sokovian Twins as Wanda and Pietro are in Age of Ultron. And in that way it connects a lot. Also, Hank Pym’s attitude towards Avengers, towards S.H.I.E.L.D, and kind of the cinematic universe in general, is much more informed after the events of Age of Ultron, and in a certain way, before the events of Civil War.”
