Let’s Break Down That ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ Post-Credits Scene

The mission goes off without a hitch until Scott radios back to the regular-sized world for Hope and her parents to bring him back, and we see that all three have been killed by Thanos' snap, leaving nothing but ash floating on the breeze as an increasingly panicked Scott tries to reach them.

The second post-credits scene, featuring a giant ant playing the drums, manages to be both amusing and chilling, before the movie ends with a reassuring statement - "Ant-Man and The Wasp will return" - that quickly turns ominous when a question mark appears at the end, rendering that observation a little less certain. 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.

Like most of its brethren, Ant-Man and the Wasp has two scenes buried in the credits: one near the start, and another at the bitter end. We're taken to the Lang house-eerily deserted, with the TV cut to an emergency broadcasting channel.

Check out what Paul Rudd had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about.

Murkowski favors Kennedy-like justice for Supreme Court slot
Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wants retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's replacement to oppose abortion. Trump interviewed four potential nominees on Monday, spending about 45 minutes with each.

"The Quantum Realm is the good news and the bad news in this movie". 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. What if the time vortexes are Scott's only way out of the Quantum Realm? We liked the idea.

With abilities like that, or with the quantum particles he harvested (and, maybe, can continue to harvest), there's a whole new list of potential failsafes against the Infinity Stones.

"The Quantum Realm is a really intriguing environment and character in the MCU". Of course, there's the chance that Scott just got lucky enough to not be one of the people randomly chosen, but he's atypical for the surviving group in that he wasn't one of the original Avengers, which is one of the major commonalities between almost all of the remaining heroes post-Infinity War.

In the meantime, Avengers 4 is slated to arrive in theaters on May 3, 2019 while Spider-Man: Far From Home will come shortly afterward on July 5, 2019.
