While we didn’t see the fallout from Thanos snapping his fingers in ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ and wiping out half of all life in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ we almost did. How that reflects upon the events of the film dives a little bit into the deep end of spoiler territory so you’ll have to read more after the jump. Let’s just say that there would have been quite a big difference to the film that would have changed the entire tone of it if it had happened. Director Peyton Reed was happy to share what could have been and thankfully wasn’t in the film.
You’ve been warned; spoilers are below!
With half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe being wiped out in ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ many fans have wondered what heroes such as Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Wasp were up to. While we still don’t know what Clint Barton was up to, the cutscene at the end did share that the unlikely heroes in this movie were busy across the country and in the Quantum Realm when Thanos changed everything as we knew it.
According to Reed:
“We talked about it, you know, how we were going to introduce the ramifications of Infinity War in our movie, and along the way, we had a bunch of different ideas. Some were more bleak, and some were things happening in the background of this movie.”
While the horrifying scene of seeing Michael Douglas as Hank, Evangeline Lilly as Hope, and the just returned to our world Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet all disappear, it is hard to imagine the original idea happening. There would be no way to keep the lighthearted themes and humor of the film intact if this went on.
Do you agree with the placement of the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ connection on ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’? Would you have preferred to see a film where it happened during the movie itself or like how they kept the crossover separated? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
