Let’s Break Down That ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ Post-Credits Scene

Black Panther was then followed-up with the biggest Marvel event movie to date - Avengers: Infinity War. That's a lot of action for a single sequel, and critics say Ant-Man and the Wasp definitely doesn't lack moving parts, but director Peyton Reed manages to wrangle them all into a fun, amusing pause between senses-shattering rounds of the war with Thanos.

Still with us? This Reddit post from "r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers" concerns the dying moments of Ant-Man and the Wasp's credits stinger, in which Scott Lang comes to the realization that he's trapped in the Quantum Realm without a paddle.

Marvel chief Kevin Feige had previously said that the film would directly connect to Avengers 4, which has been touted as the conclusion to the 10-year story that we've seen unfold in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here's how we think that might have a major baring on Avengers 4.

According to leaked set photos from Avengers 4 and popular theories, it's possible that there will be some time-trickery going on in the highly anticipated sequel. Fans learn that Scott Lang took the Ant-Man suit from his mentor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) without permission when he flew to Germany to help Captain America (Chris Evans) fight Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in Civil War.

It's a pretty bleak fate, given how obscure the Quantum Realm is to begin with, and with Hank, Jan, and Hope gone, the list of people smart enough to engineer a way to reach him-or even aware that the Quantum Realm exists-shrinks pretty dramatically. And, as such, it appears as though the ending of Ant-Man and The Wasp might have hit a bit of a snag in the overall timeline of the MCU. Mar-vell has a history with Thanos in the comics, so his connection to Carol Danvers should prove important.

While any temporal journeying could be the result of the Time Stone now in possession of Thanos, it could also come from Ant-Man's inter-dimensional travels in the Quantum Realm that leads into a time vortex.

"I'm really going to get to the bottom of this for you".

What it means: You never know what you're gonna get with these credits scenes. But the fact that such an obscure character can carry a franchise is proof that Marvel can ensnare viewers with even its most peripheral characters.
