'Avengers: Endgame' Theory: How Ant-Man Escapes The Quantum Realm

Caitlin Albers

After the Avengers: Endgame trailer debuted a week ago, it became evident that Scott Lang (Ant-Man) escapes the Quantum Realm. Fans will remember he became stranded in the realm at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp after Hank Pym, Hope Van Dyne, and Janet Van Dyne turned to dust from Thanos' snap. Even without the trailer's revelation, it was obvious to fans that Scott Lang would play a major role in bringing back the decimated superheroes, leading them to believe he would get out somehow. Janet Van Dyne had been stuck in the Quantum Realm for decades and was unable to escape despite being extremely intelligent, so how does Scott Lang work his way out?

Screen Rant has suggested a new theory detailing just how he could escape the realm this time around. The movie news site thinks one of Janet's last lines spoken in Ant-Man and The Wasp might be a major clue to how Scott escapes.

"Don't get sucked into a time vortex. We won't be able to save you," she said.

The theory suggests the time vortex she is referring to is a way to travel through space and time, sort of like an Einstein Bridge or a wormhole. Screen Rant believes he will either accidentally fall into a time vortex, or decide to do it on his own after realizing he's stranded. No matter where he arrives, he could always re-enter the Quantum Realm through his Ant-Man suit and go sub-atomic.
