Kevin Feige Explains Importance Of ANT-MAN In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

In light of Ant-Man opening right after Avengers: Age of Ultron and right before Captain America: Civil War, Kevin Feige talks here about how the movie will link those two and more. Check it out!



Amid the Avengers: Age of Ultron press conference earlier today, Slash Film spoke with Kevin Feige about the significance of Ant-Man, which will cap off Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just two months after Joss Whedon's sequel, and almost a year before Captain America: Civil War. 

"It is not [an after-thought]," Feige said of Ant-Man"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 Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Kevin Feige continued, "You meet new characters and you learn about Hank Pym and his lineage with the MCU over the years. But at the same time, it also picks up the thread of Age of Ultron in 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 Age of Ultron events, and in a certain way, before the events of Civil War." What do you think?


Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly, David Dastmalchian, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, Wood Harris John Slattery and Gregg Turkington with multi-hyphenate T.I., and the film opens July 17, 2015
