When "Avengers: Infinity War" hit theaters, there were a few heroes missing in action. While almost everyone who matters was there for the big battle with Thanos and his army, there were at least two members of The Avengers who were missing in action. With the next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is "Ant-Man and the Wasp," and it apparently takes place either right before or at the same time as "Avengers: Infinity War [VIDEO]," many fans wondered where Ant-Man was since he was part of Captain America's Secret Avengers in "Captain America: Civil War." During the interview junkets heading into "Ant-Man and the Wasp," Paul Rudd explained why his character was not there to help battle Thanos.

Where was Ant-Man during 'Avengers: Infinity War'?

Paul Rudd explained something that fans already know by watching the "Ant-Man and the Wasp" trailers.

Scott Lang was under house arrest for his actions during "Captain America: Civil War." The last time that fans saw the character, Captain America was there to bust everyone out of prison.

As "Avengers: Infinity War" showed, Captain America, Falcon, Scarlet Witch and Black Widow had formed the Secret Avengers and were out dealing with world problems their own way. However, neither Ant-Man nor Hawkeye were with them. As Rudd explained, his character was under house arrest during the attack.

In a funny comment, Evangeline Lilly said that The Wasp was in the movie, but was too small to see. It was obvious that Lilly was joking. However, if "Ant-Man and the Wasp" took place before or during "Avengers: Infinity War," that leaves open the chance that one or both of them could have been snapped out of existence by Thanos.

What about Hawkeye?

One thing that some people might have missed in "Avengers: Infinity War" was a comment that was made about Hawkeye. The movie actually explained where he was during the event. When the heroes were gathering to battle Thanos, it was said that Hawkeye was under house arrest as well, so while Ant-Man remained a mystery, the movie at least explained where Hawkeye was.

That is also likely because Hawkeye is back for "Avengers 4 [VIDEO]," as he has appeared in set photos with a new haircut and a brand-new costume. The colors of the costume line up with the character Ronin -- a samurai character that Hawkeye took on in the comics after people thought that he had died.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" comes out on July 6 and "Avengers 4" comes out on May 3.
