List RulesVote up the most plausible fan theories about Ant-Man.

Scott Lang's Ant-Man lends himself to fan theories more than almost any other MCU character. With his ability to shrink down to microscopic sizes and explore the inner workings of universes much smaller than our own, the doors for unsolved Ant-Man mysteries are wide open. It's no wonder fans were able to catch so many Ant-Man Easter eggs, given that the shrinking premise is designed to hide things in plain sight. 

As long as the Marvel Cinematic Universe gears keep turning, so will the Ant-Man fan theories. All those unanswered questions from Ant-Man have been thoroughly explored - leading up to hardcore conspiracies and suspicions about the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The ability to enter a realm where space and time become irrelevant leaves holes in more than just math and physics. Fan theories about Ant-Man and the Wasp attempt to fill those holes with explanations, and make sense of a vast and astounding world full of Marvel mysteries.

    In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the Quantum Realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that.

    Ant-Man And The Wasp Were There During Infinity War

    Both Ant-Man and Wasp are in Infinity War, but, being so small, the audience wasn't able to see them. According to Reddit user AdventurePee, Ant-Man and the Wasp will take the audience back to see scenes in Infinity War that involved Ant-Man and the Wasp.

    The Wasp Joins Alongside Ant-Man - Much Like War Machine Joined Iron Man

    Comparing the Ant-Man to Iron Man, Redditor 32_Bit_Bandit speculates Ant-Man and the Wasp will follow in its footsteps. This fan theory would not make the Wasp the villain, but the sidekick. In Iron Man 2, War Machine joined alongside Iron Man, and, according to this fan theory, the Wasp will do the same. Going against the popular Marvel movie theme of adding the man antagonist's name to the title, Ant-Man and the Wasp hints at the possible pairing of the two as allies.
