'Ant-Man and the Wasp' is a great palate cleanser

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.

As Scott Lang balances being both a superhero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.

The plan, Janet explains to Scott, is for him to take a healing particle into the subatomic quantum realm to help "cure our ghost friend".

Perhaps a nice nod to Avengers Infinity War rather than the actual manifestation of Thanos, this scene is nonetheless very unsettling. He's ready to come back up, and starts the countdown. only Janet, Hank, and Hope aren't receiving his messages.

This movie does have some hints that provide links to Avengers 4, with one of the fan theories being not so subtly confirmed.

First, we can confirm the film has two scenes after the credits.

What happens: Back at Scott's house, everything is chaos.

Scott's ant friend cuts loose in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The TV is showing only the "Emergency Broadcast System" signal - probably as a result of the mayhem caused by Thanos. Upstairs, the giant ant "stand in" Hope programmed to mimic Scott's routine keeps on keeping on, oblivious to the apocalypse, playing Scott's drum set. So, lest you spoil the movie for yourself, we suggest go offline for 7 days.

Granted, it's pretty unlikely that Scott is going to stay trapped in the Quantum Realm for as long as Jan was, but we shouldn't rule out the possibility that he's going to come out the other side displaying similar energy manipulation abilities, at least temporarily. It's probable-maybe even likely-that when the Stones destroy matter, they're not actually vaporizing it, but instead forcing it to phase out of our reality into another-maybe even into a place that is touching or related to the Quantum Realm.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.
