On this episode of Comic Movie-10, the Kane brothers discuss the end credits for the recent Marvel movie, Ant-Man and The Wasp. They start by explaining how they were both incredibly disappointed with the end credit scene. This is because it was nothing more than an enormous ant playing a drum set. This is not only, unimportant but also frustrating, as this image had previously appeared in the trailer for the movie, and was therefore nothing new.
However, Joe and Dan focus more on the mid-credit scene, which was impactful to the MCU and exciting to fans of the Marvel movies. What this scene showed was Hank Pym, his wife, and the Wasp counting down to bring Ant-Man back from the quantum realm. When they reached the number two, they evaporated into thin air, leaving Ant-Man trapped where he is. This is especially important as it relates directly to the moment in Infinity War when the Thanos snap takes place. This not only allows viewers to understand the time placement of all of the movies, but it also showed how Thanos’ actions really affected the entire universe.
In addition to how shocking this moment was for viewers, it is also a different type of credit scene as it is the first time an end credit scene shows a consequence of another action, rather than a moment leading up to future events. Joe and Dan do however acknowledge that this scene will definitely lead to other actions, especially how the 4th Avengers movie will play out. In fact, in a recent interview, Tom Holland began talking about how integral the quantum realm is and how important it will be moving forward, which was perhaps a big slip up on Holland’s part.
