Marvel’s already prepping us to find out where Ant-Man was in Infinity War


On the heels of Infinity War’s opening weekend, Marvel is releasing new teasers for Ant-Man and the Wasp. Will the franchise ever give its movies time to breathe?

No one is forgetting about your movies anytime soon, Marvel. So why are you so hasty and pushing Ant-Man and the Wasp on us so quickly?

Avengers: Infinity War just came out this weekend, and yet Marvel’s already anxious to put out more new content. On Monday, the studio teased another trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasppromising to give us more information on what Ant-Man was up to during the events of Infinity War.

Not that we weren’t asking, but don’t you think Infinity War could use a little time to breathe? The premiere was but a week ago, and fans are still trying to get over everything that happened (and there was a lot that happened).

Isn’t Marvel stealing the spotlight from itself in a way? The best fans already know that the Ant-Man sequel is on the way, so that’s not a problem. It’d be better for Marvel Studios to wait just a  moment longer. Then we could really enjoy Avengers: Infinity War for what it’s worth, rather than immediately rushing into the next movie.

Marvel also released a new poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp just to make sure we don’t forget. The poster features all the characters in the upcoming sequel, including both Ant-Man and the Wasp with and without their masks on (is this the mere exposure effect at play?).

Here's the brand new poster for Marvel Studios' "Ant-Man and the Wasp," as debuted by Evangeline Lilly. In theaters July 6. See the trailer tomorrow.

This kind of marketing tactic from Marvel was also prevalent after Black Panther came out in February. It seemed like just after the movie was released, Marvel was ready to start pushing Infinity War promotions, without giving us a fair chance to really let Black Panther sink in.

And while the news about Ant-Man and the Wasp does sound rushed, it may delight some fans to know Ant-Man’s whereabouts as soon as possible. The trailer probably won’t give away too much, but it might help fans who see Infinity War again to understand more about the complete story.

Between Infinity War and Avengers 4, the timeline is already setting itself up to be convoluted. So maybe the new Ant-Man trailer will help to clean up the complex monster that is the MCU timeline.
