Why Did Peyton Reed Not Want Ant-Man 2 To Be Part Of Avengers: Infinity War?
The Ant-Man and the Wasp movie cast was nowhere seen in Avengers: Infinity Wars. The last movie that Marvel released was Avengers and except the Ant-Man movie leads every character was seen in the film, and this is what that made Avengers to have the biggest cast of MCU. This lead to quite a disappointment to the Marvel fans and obviously to the 2015’s Ant-Man fans that they could not find all their favorites at one place.
Now finally Director Peyton Reed has opened up to this and commented that “It was important to have this movie to be a stand-alone thing — its own beginning, middle, and end — to be different, tonally, than, obviously, Infinity War. For me, it was really about taking what we had done in the first movie and forwarding those characters in ways that were interesting and hopefully unexpected. And obviously, I’m the most excited about introducing Wasp.”

Peyton Reed Did Not Want To Introduce Wasp Character In Infinity Wars
And after getting to know all this, I am quite satisfied and feel that the man has genuine reasons to not to reveal the characters in some other movie. The movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp will absolutely standalone and the introduction of Wasp will surely be the icing on the cake. Paul Rudd in his last interview said Evangeline Lilly who is playing the role of Wasp had done a great job and full justice to the Wasp role. Peyton Reed did not want to introduce Wasp in some other movie first as doing that in Infinity War wouldn’t have done the character much justice. The character will shine more in her own film. I am sure this all will be worth the wait.
