Ant-Man director teases popular Avengers 4 theory could be right


After Ant-Man and the Wasp was released, Marvel fans were all the more suspicious that time travel will happen in Avengers 4. Ant-Man’s director could be teasing that’ll happen.

Both Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp are behind us. And in an unprecedented occurrence in the MCU, Marvel plans to keep us high strung for a whole year before we figure out what happens in Avengers 4.

Sure, fans have come up with theories about what could happen in the meantime — and oh, are there theories. Among all of those theories, though, is one unifying concept: there’s going to be time travel. This is especially popular given leaked set photos that look like the current Avengers are revisiting the battle in New York, supported by the fact that: 1) Ant-Man is also in New York with them, and 2) Ant-Man is dealing with stuff like Time Vortexes in the mid-credits scene of his sequel.

Now, Ant-Man‘s director, Peyton Reed, is seeming to suggest that we’re all on the right path here with our theories. In an interview with HuffPost, Reed let on that time traveling to past Avengers scenes could definitely a possibility in Avengers 4. He just wouldn’t say how.

“Based on the science that we’ve set up in the first movie and this one, I won’t rule out the possibility [of time travel], because, again, we are dealing with a Time Vortex,” Reed said in the interview. “That could happen.”

Reed also suggested that the Quantum Realm could be a lot more important in the MCU going forward. As both Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne are around to learn and master traveling in the realm, it could become a lot more useful to our heroes in the future. Unfortunately, we might not have a lot of Hank and Janet around in Avengers 4, seeing as they all blew away into dust thanks to Thanos.

That means that Scott Lang is really on his own here. But seeing as there’s a strange Time Vortex stuck somewhere in the Quantum Realm, that might be his only way out. Oh, and if you’re thinking that Scott can just exit the Quantum Realm the way he did in the first movie, it isn’t so easy.

“This is a new suit [he’s wearing], so it really wouldn’t have the same growth that he had in the first movie,” Reed revealed “He can’t go to that well twice.”

It’s unfortunate to leave Scott in such a position. But he’s not alone. Tony and Nebula are stranded on Titan, and the other Avengers on Earth barely have a clue about what’s going on. Something will work out in the end, we just know that Marvel isn’t exactly keen on giving away what happens ’til we see it for ourselves.
