Which did you enjoy more: Ant-Man or Ant-Man and The Wasp?
Avengers: Infinity War, of course, ends with Thanos collecting all of the Infinity Stones and initiating the Snap - turning half of humanity to dust. The answer? Unfortunately, yes. The audience watches Hope, Hank and Janet float away.
Should Ant-Man and The Wasp have split the stories of Ghost's cure and Janet van Dyne's rescue into two different films? 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.
It's a pretty bleak fate, given how obscure the Quantum Realm is to begin with, and with Hank, Jan, and Hope gone, the list of people smart enough to engineer a way to reach him-or even aware that the Quantum Realm exists-shrinks pretty dramatically. The latest film in the franchise is a microcosm of everything that has propelled the studio to this point: quality casting (the success of the movies has drawn A-List talent), cutting-edge action scenes - the new auto chase with size shifting is a "gotta see" moment - a willingness to embrace the comics, and perhaps more important than anything, the proper tone. What if the time vortexes are Scott's only way out of the Quantum Realm?
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. Yes, they will, and today's Nerdist News breaks out the Pym particles to explain how. So that's where we leave Scott: Stuck in the quantum realm, holding a big handful of "healing particles", and not sure what to do or even with a method of escape. Or maybe he even learns about Thanos and attempts to warn the Avengers of his presence early on in the MCU's running timeline? 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 first post-credits scene, the trio sends Scott into the Quantum Realm in order to recover some data.
