Crazy Avengers 4 Theories That Could Actually Come True
SPOILERS AHEAD FOR ANT-MAN AND THE WASP AND THE AVENGERS 3. DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT THE ENDING OF EITHER OF THESE MOVIES SPOILED.
Ideally, if you’re reading this, you’re either one of two people: you don’t care about spoilers or you’ve seen Ant-Man and the Wasp.
For anyone that has seen Ant-Man and the Wasp, you know exactly where this is going. A large portion of this Ant-Man sequel takes place in the Quantum Realm, which is the subatomic realm that Scott Lang’s suit allows him to travel too. As noted in the movie, the rules of reality don’t necessarily apply — the deeper you go into this realm, the more true this is. Theoretically, at the core of the Quantum Realm, there is no time, no space, no anything as we understand it on Earth.
After the movie ends, in true Marvel Cinematic Universe fashion, those who wait behind with the patience to sit through the credits will be treated to at least one post-credit scene. In the Ant-Man and the Wasp’s post-credit scene, we see Ant-Man in the Quantum Realm when he hears a snap. Anyone who’s seen Avengers Infinity War knows exactly what this snap is. When we return to the scene back in reality, we’re shown piles of dust. Presumably, that dust is the only remains left of Hope, Janet and Hank. Scott Lang, though, survives through this snap and according to one Reddit user, JuggerClutch, that’s because the Infinity Stones don’t work in the Quantum Realm.
JuggerClutch expands on this idea by explaining that in Avengers 4, the heroes left to defeat Thanos will learn of this (presumably from Scott) and bring Thanos and their fight with him to the Quantum Realm. There, try as he might, Thanos will be left to fight without the powers of the Infinity Gauntlet. At this point, the Avengers and Thanos will finally have their fair fight (as long as you ignore the fact that this fight will likely be multiple Avengers versus one Mad Titan). Because they have to, the Avengers will win and Thanos will be defeated, left trapped within the confines of the Quantum Realm.
