Paul Rudd on the Writing Process of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Hannah John Kamen as Ghost in a scene from Marvel’s Ant Man and the Wasp

A second post-credits scene implies San Francisco, Ant-Man's home base, is particularly hard-hit by Thanos' snap.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had issues for years with how, exactly, its timeline fits together, which is a natural issue when you're mixing together the continuity of over a dozen films into one cohesive timeline.

Marvel's latest film, Ant-Man and the Wasp was released in USA theatres on Friday, one week before we'll get to see it in India.

Ant-Man and The Wasp was a lighthearted and self-contained adventure until disaster struck in its post-credits scenes, something director Peyton Reed tells ComicBook.com he is quite proud of.

As you may remember, Avengers: Infinity War ended with Thanos snapping his fingers and getting rid of half of the universe's population-including Spider-Man. Since they are under house arrest, they can not participate in the fight in Infinity War.

But in a case of unfortunate timing, while Scott is in the quantum realm, Hank, Hope and Janet all disintegrate into dust. They manage to save her in precisely three days. 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. This is where the tricky part comes in. He's ready to come back up, and starts the countdown. only Janet, Hank, and Hope aren't receiving his messages.




This movie does have some hints that provide links to Avengers 4, with one of the fan theories being not so subtly confirmed. Now we know why.

While any temporal journeying could be the result of the Time Stone now in possession of Thanos, it could also come from Ant-Man's inter-dimensional travels in the Quantum Realm that leads into a time vortex.

There's basically an endless list of possibilities revolving around the Quantum Realm. It may even be out of Thanos' reach, or at least his awareness.

Then there's the fact that time and space work completely differently down there - Hank, in the first Ant-Man, says those concepts are "irrelevant" as far as the quantum realm is concerned.

Avengers 4 will arrive in May, 2019.
