For a long time fans have debated where July’s Ant Man and The Wasp is set in the MCU timeline. Is it after Civil War? Or after the events of Infinity War? While there has been speculation about it based on the first teaser, Marvel Studios hasn’t officially stated where it’s set…until now.
Marvel has released the official synopsis for the film, which confirms it’s set after Captain America: Civil War:
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes “Ant Man and The Wasp,”a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
Ant Man and the Wasp releases on July 6th. A new trailer recently played at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, which means we should see that online pretty soon.
