During a guest spot on the Empire Film Podcast, Ant-Man and The Wasp director Peyton Reed spoke about his love for the film’s post-credits scene, which ties into the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
As you likely know by now, that mid-credits sequence featured in Ant-Man and The Wasp sees Hank, Hope, and Janet cease to exist due to Thanos’ snap from the end of Infinity War. Meanwhile, Ant-Man is trapped in the Quantum Realm, completely unaware of what is happening. While not too shocking, this does a lot to set up the events of Avengers 4. Reed personally loved this scene and here’s why:
“Oh, where are they now? What’s happening in this tag? They’re doing some type of quantum experiment, there’s Luis’s van — throwing all these things at the audience immediately to catch them off guard. Janet’s in street clothes and he’s in the Ant-Man suit, Hope’s handing him something, what are they doing? Something about Ghost? And then, bam, just punching the audience in the gut with it. It felt like a very Ant-Man and the Wasp way to deal with this gigantic, dramatic happening at the end of Infinity War.”
Well, what do you think? Did you love Ant-Man and The Wasp’s mid-credits scene as much as Reed? Let us know down in the comments!
