Even if you’re a Marvel fan who hates fan theories, the latest one for Ant-Man and the Wasp makes so much sense that it’s sure to convince even the most cynical of fans.
After the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp, Marvel fans have been coming up with all different kinds of fan theories as to how Avengers 4 will fix the devastating effects of Thanos’ snap. Some theories make complete sense, others are totally wild, but a new discovery found in Ant-Man and the Wasp feels like less of a fan theory and more of a legitimate discovery, though no one from Marvel has confirmed the theory just yet. Now that Ant-Man and the Wasp has become available for purchase on digital platforms, Marvel fans finally have a chance to uncover the film’s Easter eggs frame by frame.
One Reddit user by the name of meme_abstinent discovered a secret hidden in the film’s first post-credits scene, in which Hank Pym and his family are all taken by the Mad Titan’s snap and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a.k.a. Ant-Man, is left stranded in the Quantum Realm. During Scott’s time in the Quantum Realm, before the snap, the Quantum Realm seems to be in a state of balance, shimmering a cool blue color. After the events of the snap, the Quantum Realm seems to be flooded with orange orbs flying all over the place. The Reddit post claims to have a theory as to what these orbs mean for Avengers 4 and it almost makes too much sense not to be true.
Although the film is presumably full of Easter eggs that have yet to be discovered like many of the MCU films, this new discovery seems to be the biggest one yet. It’s possible that the disruption caused in the Quantum Realm could be the doing of some other force, but as of right now, this current theory seems to be the most likely to be the secret behind the souls lost during Avengers: Infinity War.
