How Ant-Man And The Wasp Confirms An Avengers 4 Rumor


Time vortex.

Take those two words in isolation and they don’t mean an awful lot, but in the context of Ant-Man and the Wasp, they may contain a big clue about the plot underpinning Avengers 4.

As reported by MCU Cosmic, there’s a scene during Ant-Man and the Wasp when Scott Lang enters the miniaturized Quantum Tunnel – a piece of technology that just so happens to be built by Hank Pym himself. That’s the first clue, as we’ve heard that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will “travel in time via a piece of technology that Hank invented.”

Later in that same scene, Paul Rudd’s tiny-teeny hero is guided through the Quantum Realm by none other than Janet Van Dyne (AKA the original Wasp), who advises him to avoid the time vortex at all costs, as it’s seemingly the point of no return. Couple this with the sequel’s mid-credits sequence, and we have a sneaking suspicion that Scott Lang uses the vortex as a means of escaping the Quantum Realm (and emerging in time for Avengers 4) when he’s exhausted all other options.

MCU Cosmic’s report goes one step further to suggest that Scott Lang will be our point of entry into Avengers 4, as the post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp all but confirms the use of a time jump.

Another part of the Avengers 4 plot rumor has to do with Scott Lang. When the stuff about him and Tony traveling through time first crossed our path, another part of it said that Scott would be the audience’s introduction to the world after the snap in Infinity War.

Ant-Man and The Wasp’s post-credit scene seems to confirm that as well. If the rumors are correct, that would mean that Scott Lang will spend several years trapped in the Quantum Realm before either finding his way out or someone turning the machine back on in the real world. It’ll then be through his point-of-view that audiences will experience how Thanos’ actions changed the world.

So, there you have it; another potential development in the ongoing mystery that connects Ant-Man and the Wasp with the so-far untitled Avengers 4. The former MCU pic is due in theaters today (our review), so we’ll be bringing you all the latest as more information comes to light.
