Ant-Man and The Wasp: The end-credits scene is certainly something to think about
Ant-Man and The Wasp opened on July 4, 2018, and is the second stand-alone movie on the titular superhero. Its links with Avengers: Infinity War is quite a bit to take in.
Massive spoilers ahead, but Ant-Man and the Wasp might seem like an enjoyable journey, provided you are blissfully unaware of the shockers 'Avengers: Infinity War' has unleashed upon the planet. But sadly, if you've been through the process of bawling your eyes out while whispering "What the f***!?" out of sheer frustration throughout whatever the latest installment of the Avengers was, this movie is definitely going to take you by surprise - especially with its all sunshine and chirpy slice of life roll.

1. exactly what I needed after being emotionally compromised by Infinity War
2. Scott and Cassie are just too cute
3. THAT post-credit scene. bitch I screamed
It's almost like Infinity War never happened and over three-fourths of the Avengers haven't completely disappeared. Ant-Man and the Wasp is out here for everybody who has seen the two movies starring the titular superhero, but here's the real catch and it's a BIG one! What you must absolutely keep in mind is that the timeline of this movie is set way before Thanos decided to wipe out your favorite superheroes with a single finger snap.
And in classic Marvel style - as expected - the creators left the big revelation for the end-credits scene.
The post-credits scene shows Scott headed into the Quantum Realm seeking the Quantum Energy which could eventually be studied and also used to heal Ghost; all this while, Hank, Hope, and Janet are busy overseeing the project at large. And this is where the plot twist comes in: Scott retrieves the Quantum Energy and reaches out to the team to pull him back up and receives dead silence in return because guess who got there before?
That's right, Thanos can be seen busy dusting off Hank, Hope and Janet one by one and with that fans are left on the edge of a cliffhanger, trying to fathom how Scott could possibly go back to his old size.
ant man and the wasp is the first marvel movie with a female hero protagonist specifically mentioned in the title. her name is hope van dyne. she's badass and beautiful and deserves our appreciation pic.twitter.com/QmIvDcpQYD— paulinha 🇧🇷 (@morrisnfraser) July 4, 2018
It's almost extra how the creators struggled to create a link between something as minor as Ant-Man and something as mighty as Infinity War just because of their supposed Marvel principle. The ending is pretty unfair, especially since Janet had just returned to the human world for a week after spending 30 years in the Quantum Realm and that Thanos decides to take her out too. The audacity!
But still, the lingering question pin-pricking its way through viewer's minds happens to be what happens to the future of Ant-Man and the Wasp? Will Scott return to his normal size? Will the Wasp ever return for more fun, or will she stay locked up in some other possible realm with our other departed superheroes?
As of now, none of that is certain. All the more reason to gear up for Avengers 4, which is due to hit theatres on May 3, 2019.
