Paul Rudd on the Writing Process of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

'Ant-Man and the Wasp': Should you stick around after the credits?

'Ant-Man and the Wasp': Should you stick around after the credits?

But because Scott survived his trip there, Hank and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), the new Wasp, become convinced Janet might still be alive in the dimension. 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.

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes "Ant Man and the Wasp", a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the first post-credits scene, the trio sends Scott into the Quantum Realm in order to recover some data.

In a mid-credits scene, Hank, Scott (Ant-Man), Hope (The Wasp) and Janet are attempting harvest quantum energy to help Ava Starr (Hannah John-Kamen), aka Ghost.

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. That includes major heroes such as Spider-Man and Black Panther (who we know will be back).

Not only does this shockingly boost Thanos' death toll, it also leaves Scott trapped in the quantum realm. That matters because just seconds after Scott successfully makes the jump, he suddenly finds himself out of communication with the team back in the normal sized universe operating the device's control panel. Upstairs, the giant ant "stand in" Hope programmed to mimic Scott's routine keeps on keeping on, oblivious to the apocalypse, playing Scott's drum set.

What it means: You never know what you're gonna get with these credits scenes.

"The Quantum Realm is the good news and the bad news in this movie".

Then there's the fact that time and space work completely differently down there - Hank, in the first Ant-Man, says those concepts are "irrelevant" as far as the quantum realm is concerned.

This movie does have some hints that provide links to Avengers 4, with one of the fan theories being not so subtly confirmed.

It's also worth considering that the Quantum Realm may have literally been out of reach of Thanos's snap all together, and thus, in one way or another, immune to the Infinity Stones' powers.

Avengers 4 will arrive in May, 2019.
