Ant-Man and The Wasp's Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly address their Infinity War absence

Warning: this article contains spoilers from Avengers: Infinity War.

There was a distinct lack of Ant-Man and The Wasp in Avengers: Infinity War, and both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are now explaining just what they were up to all that time.

In the movie, it’s mentioned that Scott Lang is under house during the events, something Rudd clarified in a new interview.

“I remember going to see Infinity War and they do mention that I was under house arrest and that I was not able to leave,” he said (via NDTV). “There’s a lot going on, a lot going on.”

However, Lilly’s answer was more interesting, the actress saying of her character Hope van Dyne: “For the record, I was there. I was just tiny.”

“Well maybe I was too small and you just couldn’t see me either,” Rudd then joked. “I feel like I just piggybacked on your joke there.”

The upcoming movie Ant-Man and The Wasp is due to take place before Infinity War, so there’s no need to worry about Thanos’ purge interfering with events.

However, Infinity War’s writers have revealed why Ant-Man didn’t even feature in the post-credits scenes, despite Ant-Man and The Wasp being the next MCU movie.

“We thought, ‘Do you want to give any hope?’,” Stephen McFeely said. “It’s a tragedy, and tragedies end in a grim and sad end.”

Christopher Markus added: “When you end it like that, there aren’t too many other places you can go. Marvel tags often point to the next movie coming.

“The next movie is Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is light-hearted. You don’t want to go, ‘But meanwhile! Paul Rudd is still adorable!’.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives in UK cinemas on August 3, 2018 and US cinemas on July 6, 2018.
