Ant-Man And The Wasp: After-Credits Scenes Explained

Ant-Man And The Wasp: After-Credits Scenes Explained

The post-credits scenes for "Ant-Man and the Wasp" (Because, you KNOW there are post-credits scenes in a Marvel film) provide some answers.

Note that we have also seen Scott escape the Quantum Realm before, and he may be able to pull off the trick again by himself.

Meanwhile, according to Collider's Jon Schnepp, Thanos creator Jim Stalin has reportedly revealed that Marvel is working on an extended edition of the movie, featuring 30 minutes of the Mad Titan's backstory. This time out, the trio seek to rescue Hope's mom Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) from the Quantum Realm, all while battling the occasionally intangible Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) - and then there's the question of where all this ties into the cosmic battle being faced by the MCU's other heroes in Avengers: Infinity War.

Still, that ballsy decision speaks to how well the MCU has trained moviegoers to stick around until the end of the credits - clearly the studio isn't too anxious that fans would rush out early, especially since the rest of Ant-Man and The Wasp resolutely avoids making any reference to Thanos or the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The audience watches Hope, Hank and Janet float away. 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.

Check out what Paul Rudd had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about. We're taken to the Lang house-eerily deserted, with the TV cut to an emergency broadcasting channel.

But hey, the good news is that Scott's ant friend survived Thanos! We learned in this movie that quantum particles can literally affect the nature of reality and can cause (or, significantly, reverse) the phasing of matter between parallel universes.

Director Peyton Reed told TheWrap that in figuring out what the Quantum Realm could be and where it could lead, he realized the possibilities were endless. We liked the idea. Jessica has the quantum connect (WITH SPOILERS) on today's Nerdist News! Or maybe he even learns about Thanos and attempts to warn the Avengers of his presence early on in the MCU's running timeline? If the Quantum Realm is somehow safe from the Stones abilities, it may come into play in a totally different way come Avengers 4 next year.
