Did Thanos’ Snap In Avengers: Infinity War Affect Ant-Man And/Or The Wasp?
The climax of Avengers: Infinity War was absolutely devastating, with a whole host of some of the biggest names in the MCU being wiped out. And the death didn’t stop in the post-credits scene, either, as both Nick Fury and Maria Hill fell victim to Thanos’ Snap, too. Thankfully, though, there was a glimmer of hope, as Fury’s last act before turning to dust was to send an S.O.S. to Captain Marvel.
As such, we know that Carol Danvers is on the way and will be there to assist the remaining heroes in Avengers 4. But what about Scott Lang and his trusty partner Hope Van Dyne? Were either of them wiped out by Thanos’ Snap of Doom? We don’t get to see what becomes of them in Infinity War and with next week’s Ant-Man and the Wasp set to take place before the events of the aforementioned event movie, it doesn’t sound like we’ll find out, right? Well, maybe not.
Before we proceed any further, we’ll issue the standard spoiler warning here. If you don’t want to know what happens in Peyton Reed’s sequel, turn back now. If, however, you just can’t wait to find out what’s in store, then continue reading after the jump.
We’ve already heard that Ant-Man and the Wasp has two “can’t-miss” post-credits scenes, and after speaking to those who’ve seen it, we can confirm that one of them does indeed show the aftermath of Infinity War. Long story short, we see Scott Lang in the Quantum Realm while Janet Van Dyne, Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym turn to dust due to the Mad Titan’s Snap, leaving Ant-Man stranded in the alternate dimension.
So, as it turns out, Thanos’ actions did affect Scott and Hope, as the latter was reduced to ash and the former lost his closest friends. No doubt, that’ll fuel him to join up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers 4 but first, he’s gotta get out of the Quantum Realm. And while there’s no telling how he’ll do that just yet, we’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Captain Marvel may be able to lend him a hand.
