I recently did a video discussing the post credits scene of Ant-Man and The Wasp. Whilst it was predominantly speculation, since the film’s release it has been proven to be correct.
Throughout this video I will be discussing my theory on where this leaves Ant-Man and what will happen in the future to correct the predicament that he now finds himself in.
There are huge spoilers for both Ant Man and The Wasp and Infinity War throughout this video so it may be best to give this a miss if you still want to see.
With that out the way, I’m Deffinition and this is my Post Credits Theory for Ant-Man And The Wasp!
Ant-Man And The Wasp Post Credit Scene Breakdown
In the post-credits scene, Pym and Janet create a smaller version of the Quantum Realm portal that fits in the back of Luis’s van. Sending Scott in to collect Quantum particles, they warn him of the dangers of Time Vortex’. Stating that should he become lost in one they will be unable to get him out he continues his mission.
Once Scott has finished, he asks to be brought back through the portal but things go awry when there is no response. Scott is unable to return and becomes stuck in the Quantum Realm, the final shot of the scene cuts to the location from which Scott set off where we discover that Pym, Janet, and Hope have vanished.
There is a faint shimmer of dust in the wind, signifying that Thanos’ snap has ruled them all out of existence. This leaves Scott completely stranded in the dimension. Of course, we have all seen from photo leaks from Avengers 4, that Ant-man joins the team in their quest to regain the Infinity Stones so he must escape. I theorise that he will be aided by Captain Marvel who may have been stuck in a Time Vortex which would explain why her character has not aged from her origin film which is set in the 90s.
Her return through the Quantum Realm would allow her rejoin Scott and then free him from the dimension. Carol Danvers, which is the alter ego of Captain Marvel, possesses superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, physical durability, a limited precognitive “sixth sense”, and a perfectly amalgamated human/Kree physiology that rendered her resistant to most toxins and poisons. As Binary, the character can tap the energy of a “white hole”, allowing full control and manipulation of stellar energies, and therefore control over heat, the electromagnetic spectrum and gravity. This showcases that she is more than capable to leave the dimension and will ideally bring Ant-Man with her.
I’ve seen some theories state that Doctor Strange also has access to the Quantum Realm so he may be able to free Scott, however, he was wiped out by Thanos’ snap so unless he returns before freeing Ant-man it seems unlikely. Other possible conclusions are that Scott gets trapped in a time vortex and this sends him back into the past where he is able to rejoin the Avengers as they return to the battle of New York.
