In the latest episode of Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon Routh’s Atom did what Ant-Man should have done in Avengers: Endgame against a foe.
For those of you who may have forgotten, there was a time before the release of Avengers: Endgame, where fans theorized that Ant-Man would be the one to defeat Thanos. This theory stated that Ant-Man would have snuck up Thanos’ anus in Avengers: Endgame before expanding to his normal size, killing Thanos in the process. The theory spread around the internet fairly quickly and even Avengers: Endgame‘s directors commented on it. This was obviously not how things went down between Ant-Man and Thanos in Avengers: Endgame as the two never actually interacted in the film. However, it seems that the other characters in Legends of Tomorrow had this idea for Brandon Routh’s Atom.
In the show’s latest episode Brandon Routh’s Atom and the shows other heroes faced off against infamous historical figure, Grigori Rasputin. Unable to defeat him, Caity Lotz’s White Canary throws Brandon Routh’s Atom into Rasputin’s mouth who swallows the character. Atom is then told to enlarge by White Canary who does so, causing the Russian antagonist to explode in quite a graphic manner:
What do you all think of this Brandon Routh’s move against Rasputin? Should Avengers: Endgame have killed off Thanos with Ant-Man in a similar manner? Was Atom’s fatal enlargement taking things to far? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Legends of Tomorrow stars Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer / Atom, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance / White Canary, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Charlie, Tala Ashe as Zari Tomaz, Jes Macallan as Ava Sharpe, Courtney Ford as Nora Darhk, Olivia Swann as Astra Logue, Amy Louise Pemberton as Gideon, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood / Steel, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory / Heat Wave, and Matt Ryan as John Constantine.
Brandon Routh’s Atom can be seen in Legends of Tomorrow which airs on Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on The CW.
Ant-Man was last seen in Avengers: Endgame which is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Ant-Man 3 is reportedly in development at Marvel Studios
