Marvel Studios has shared an official graphic chronicling Ant-Man’s journey through the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.
On Instagram, the official Marvel UK account posted a timeline recounting all of Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s MCU appearances in chronological order. The chronology of the Ant-Man franchise isn’t exactly hard to figure out, beginning with 2015’s Ant-Man and continuing with 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. What makes this timeline interesting, however, is that it also charts Scott’s size throughout each film.
The timeline uses Scott’s normal size as a baseline, with the line on the graph dipping every time he used the Ant-Man suit to shrink and, eventually, climbing significantly when he used the suit to grow and become Giant-Man — a feat he first accomplished in Civil War. The line reaches its absolute lowest points whenever Scott visits the Quantum Realm, which he did in Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp and multiple times in Endgame. Meanwhile, it reaches an all-time high during his biggest foray as Giant-Man to date, which took place during Endgame‘s climactic final battle.
Of course, Ant-Man’s time in the MCU isn’t done just yet, with the hero’s third eponymous film, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, currently scheduled for release on July 28, 2023. The film sees Ant-Man franchise veterans Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer reprise their roles as Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne, respectively.
Quantumania also stars Kathryn Newton, who takes over the role of Scott’s daughter, Cassie Lang. Cassie was previously played in Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp by Abby Ryder Fortson, and in Endgame by Emma Fuhrmann. Meanwhile, the main antagonist of the upcoming third Ant-Man film is none other than Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors. Majors made his MCU debut as He Who Remains, a variant of Kang, in the Season 1 finale of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ original series Loki. Finally, legendary Ghostbusters actor Bill Murray recently confirmed that he is in Quantumania as well, though his role is currently being kept under wraps.
Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man timeline continues in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, in theaters July 28, 2023.
