'Ant-Man And The Wasp' Director on Shocking Post-Credits Scene

But because Scott survived his trip there, Hank and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), the new Wasp, become convinced Janet might still be alive in the dimension.

Still, that ballsy decision speaks to how well the MCU has trained moviegoers to stick around until the end of the credits - clearly the studio isn't too anxious that fans would rush out early, especially since the rest of Ant-Man and The Wasp resolutely avoids making any reference to Thanos or the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

Warning: Massive spoilers are ahead for Ant-Man and the Wasp!

The first post-credits scene finds Scott venturing back into the Quantum Realm to gather more healing particles to continue Ghost's treatments, with Hope, Hank, and Janet staying behind to operate the Quantum Gateway tech, which is now stashed in the back of Luis' van.

With that also comes the post-credits scenes, of which there are two in Ant-Man and the Wasp, sticking with the typical formula of one amusing and one being more serious. Scott, meanwhile, is stuck in the Quantum Realm. When the scene goes back to Earth, it's revealed the three have been erased as a result of Thanos' finger snap in Avengers: Infinity War. Now we know why. We also learned that spending enough time in the Quantum Realm alters one physiology and can imbue a person with the ability to control-or at least manipulate-quantum particles in people's bodies. We're taken to the Lang house-eerily deserted, with the TV cut to an emergency broadcasting channel.

This doesn't quite answer why Ant-Man wasn't in the battle at Wakanda, but it does set up where he is in Avengers 4, and it's particularly intriguing that he's trapped in the Quantum Realm.

Still, in a more recent interview with ComicBook.com, Reed opened up about the fact that he did plant some seeds in Ant-Man and The Wasp for not only a potential third film but also the upcoming Avengers 4.

There's basically an endless list of possibilities revolving around the Quantum Realm.

"What I think we should focus on is this Spider-Man who started in Civil War and then has this [Homecoming] movie, and then will be in the Avengers movie".

According to leaked set photos from Avengers 4 and popular theories, it's possible that there will be some time-trickery going on in the highly anticipated sequel.
