How Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Post-Credits Scene Came To Be

Den Of Geek caught up with Peyton Reed to discuss Ant-Man and the Wasp and, more specifically, that mid-credits scene of Scott Lang in the Quantum Realm.

As Ant-Man and the Wasp is the 20th installment in Marvel’s juggernaut franchise, it’s only fitting that Peyton Reed’s MCU sequel includes one or two post-credits scenes to tease what comes next.

One glance at the calendar tells us that Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 are both coming down the pike, and it turns out Ant-Man and the Wasp actually has ties to both movies.

All of this can be traced back to the post-credits scene hidden within the film. It’s one which has already leaked online (alas, at the time of writing, it appears Marvel Studios has pulled said clip offline), and now, director Peyton Reed has weighed in to give a little more perspective to what is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing after-credits stingers in Marvel history.

What we didn’t necessarily know was how we were going to deal with it. Do we glimpse TV monitors and TV reports of stuff going on in other parts of the world? That stuff seemed kind of lame and obvious. We’ve seen that in other movies. It didn’t feel particularly inspired.

Continuing on, he said:

I think that Markus and McFeely did the first crack at that scene, just conceptually. They set up these elements, and we refined it with our writers’ room…It felt like our movie’s very particular way of dealing with that scene.

Reed makes a good point when he says that the cliché of projecting world events over TV monitors is becoming a little long in the tooth, so trapping Scott Lang within Marvel’s Quantum Realm is an efficient and wholly unique way of joining the dots between Ant-Man and the Wasp and the so-far untitled Avengers 4. The question, really, is whether he’ll come into contact with one Carol Danvers while circling that time vortex…
