With the untitled Avengers 4 sequel a year away from theaters, Marvel fans will have a long wait before getting one Follow the devastating end of Avengers: Infinity War . After Ant-Man and the Wasp hit theaters in July, many wonder if this movie will give us a first look at the last Avengers chapter.
wondered how Ant-Man and the Wasp would fit into the timeline. Positioned after Avengers: Infinity War but with its history supposed to take place between Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War the relationship of films to one another has always been one a bit of a question, especially when it turned out that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) would not appear in Infinity War (he and Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye were clearly absent in the film). This relationship might be a first look at Avengers 4 .
One thing is for sure, thanks to screenwriter Stephen McFeely, that both Ant-Man and the Wasp and next year will Captain Marvel links to Avengers 4 to have. McFeely told Buzzfeed that there is a relationship between all the upcoming Marvel movies.
"My hope is the entertainment you and I will be having in a year's time, you'll have a sense of what choices we have made over a year of Marvel films," he said. "There is a relationship between them all."
This relationship could only be a post-credits scene.
A trademark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mid and Post Credits scenes usually provide some sort of nod to the next chapter of a given story within the MCU. Post-credits scenes are where we first saw Thanos, and one of the post-credits scenes in Thor: Ragnarok served as direct access to Infinity War . In this scene, Thor and Loki go ashore with a ship of Asgardian survivors, only to encounter a much larger, darker, more ominous ship. The ship turns out to be Thanos. The Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene also teases an upcoming movie, in particular Captain Marvel when she's the hero Nick Fury tries to contact before he crumbles out of existence ̵
If follows the scene after borrowing from Ant-Man and the Wasp we might see a response to this plight call with Captain Marvel, who appears on Earth now half his population misses. Such a scene would make a practical connection to both [CaptainMarvel and Avengers 4 . The scene could also show that Ant-Man makes contact with other surviving heroes or even possibly does something that shifts the scene onto another character's – possibly Hawkeye's – shoulders. If the theory that the archer loses all his family to Thanos' finger-shards is true, a post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the wasp might show that he is becoming Ronin – especially since Hawkeye Avengers 4 Costume looks very much like Ronin.
While admittedly endless possibilities exist for the post-credits scene, it seems likely that we will get some kind of connection to Avengers 4 . Whatever it is, it's certainly interesting to see how it all comes together, even if we have to wait a full year.
Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War now plays in theaters. On July 6, 2018, Ant and the Wasp are published. Captain Marvel will follow her on March 6, 2019. With the unnamed Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019, she will do her utmost to bow everything to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
