Ant-Man and the Wasp is being released between the releases of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, giving it a special place in Marvel's release schedule.

"Put yourself in our positions two years ago," Avengers writer Stephen McFeely told Buzzfeed. "We’re looking at a blank wall, and it says Avengers 3, Ant-Man and [the] Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4. So there are four big shoeboxes, and we’re responsible for the bookends. As we’re going through deciding what we want to do, we have these two shoeboxes in the middle that you can either look at as burdens or opportunities.

“My hope is the conversation you and I will have a year from now, you’ll have a sense of the choices we’ve made over the course of an entire year of Marvel movies. There’s a relationship between them all.”

What is reportedly early concept art from Avengers 4 may have pre-emptively revealed the fate of the Wasp after Avengers: Infinity War. The artwork shows the new, post-snap team of Avengers, including Captain Marvel and Ant-Man. However, the Wasp is absent from the team lineup in the artwork. It is hard to imagine a scenario where the Wasp willing sit out a chance to fight against Thanos alongside the Avengers, leading many to wonder if she was one of the many who faded away after Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet snap.
