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.

    Ant-Man And The Wasp Will Be The Audience's Full Introduction To The Multiverse - And A Future Disney/FOX Fusion

    With all the Quantum Realm leaping going on, a fan theory from Reddit user AhhBisto suggests Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the audience's full introduction to the Multiverse. Using a quote from actress Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope, they postulate this film will successfully explore the Multiverse and allow for characters to cross between realms. Disney's pursuit of FOX will allow for characters from franchises like X-Men and Fantastic Four to cross between universes - possibly leading up to their appearances in future Avengers films.

    The long-since-gone former Wasp has not been abandoned in space and time. Fans have speculated that Janet, the wife of Henry Pym and mother of Hope van Dyne, will be reappearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp. According to Evangeline Lily, who plays Hope,

    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. 

    During their mission, it's entirely possible they'll look to save Janet and gain a greater understanding of the Quantum Realm.

    The Quantum Realm Contains An Entire Civilization - With The Main Villain As Its Ruler

    When Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne dive into the Quantum Realm to get Janet, it's possible they'll find more than the original Wasp. There could be an entire microverse waiting inside, containing its own thriving civilization.

    Reddit user 32_Bit_Bandit thinks that whoever (or whatever) calls itself ruler of this micro-civilization will be the biggest threat to the two heroes. The main villain will be waiting for the two somewhere within its kingdom - and it will be powerful.

    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.
