There's an interesting (but totally unconfirmed) report floating around today involving Marvel's 'Ant-Man'. One of the things fans have been pondering is the connection the Paul Rudd starrer will have to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how it fits into the timeline of all the other Marvel movies.

I'll refrain from re-posting the entire rumor here because it could be a huge spoiler for next summer's 'Ant-Man', however here's a snippet from the report (via Starlog) -


"According to this anonymous party, ANT-MAN will take place alongside the events of AGE OF ULTRON, the fall-out of which will spur on the Superhuman Registration Act. While ANT-MAN is largely self-contained in nature, the references of the MCU will come from Pym’s past as a scientist for S.H.I.E.L.D. in the ’60s, having worked alongside Howard Stark, Arnim Zola and Alexander Pierce. However, in this flashback sequence, Pym will supposedly also have a run-in with a young military hot-head by the name of Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, who Marvel fans have last seen in THE INCREDIBLE HULK as played by William Hurt." -


'Ant-Man' opens July 17, 2015.
