Paul Rudd Reveals His Feelings About Not Being In Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War was stuffed wall to wall with Marvel Comics' brightest heroes — well, except for two. As all Marvel fans are well aware, neither Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye nor Paul Rudd's Ant-Man were included on the super-sized movie's stacked roster. Now, a little over months after the film hit theaters, Rudd has revealed how he feels about not being in Avengers: Infinity War

"I was watching it thinking, 'Wow, there's this really great party going on, and I guess my invitation got lost in the mail,'" Rudd told CinemaBlend when discussing his experience screening Infinity War for the first time. "FOMO — is that what [it's called]?... It's like, I know they're over there!"

While Rudd's "fear of missing out" is understandable – Avengers: Infinity War was a commercial and critical success, broke box office records with ease, and sent fans into tailspins of emotion — it gets washed away when remembering that the actor has his own solo movie just around the corner. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp, directed by Peyton Reed and starring Evangeline Lilly as the titular Wasp, will break down why Rudd's Ant-Man was completely M.I.A. in Infinity War (it likely has something to do with Scott Lang getting placed under house arrest after Captain America: Civil War) — and will serve as a "breath of fresh air" after all the death and devastation seen in the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed flick. 

He may have missed out on the ambitious crossover event, but Ant-Man's next outing — heralded in first reactions as "a freaking blast" — will more than make up for it. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp will buzz into theaters on July 6.
