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

The latest film in the franchise is a microcosm of everything that has propelled the studio to this point: quality casting (the success of the movies has drawn A-List talent), cutting-edge action scenes - the new vehicle chase with size shifting is a "gotta see" moment - a willingness to embrace the comics, and perhaps more important than anything, the proper tone.

Now a couple of months on, and with the literal dust having settled on that movie, it's time to pick things up with Ant-Man and his new partner in fighting crime, the Wasp, to see just what they've been doing and, perhaps, how it connects to Infinity War. They were handed boards with Google's most pressing questions around the movie, its storyline and characters, and information about the actors themselves. Ant-Man shrinks, entering the quantum realm via a "quantum tunnel", gathers the particles, and asks to get sized back up.

At one point in Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) said that Hawkeye and Ant-Man had both taken deals with the government after they were arrested (along with the rest of Captain America's crew) in Captain America: Civil War. Since they are under house arrest, they can not participate in the fight in Infinity War.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had issues for years with how, exactly, its timeline fits together, which is a natural issue when you're mixing together the continuity of over a dozen films into one cohesive timeline. Isn't it possible that Scott somehow managed to go back in time in an attempt to escape the Quantum Realm? Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. All is resolved with no hint that Thanos has yet attacked Earth.

First, we can confirm the film has two scenes after the credits. Scott, Hope, Hank and Janet are working on an experiment, seemingly blissfully unaware of the impending doom.

The camera cuts to where the Pyms were standing, and all we see is dust. We also learned that spending enough time in the Quantum Realm alters one physiology and can imbue a person with the ability to control-or at least manipulate-quantum particles in people's bodies. Of course, there's the chance that Scott just got lucky enough to not be one of the people randomly chosen, but he's atypical for the surviving group in that he wasn't one of the original Avengers, which is one of the major commonalities between almost all of the remaining heroes post-Infinity War. Or maybe Scott isn't as essential to the Avengers team as he thinks.
