Thrilling and hilarious though it may be, Ant Man and The Wasp's ending left quite a few unanswered questions. Many expected the sequel to explain the connection between Ant-Man and Avengers 4. After all, the second Ant-Man is one of only two films between Avengers: Infinity War and its anticipated sequel. Fans are champing at the bit for any information as to what happened after the infamous snap, and Ant-Man and the Wasp felt like the perfect opportunity to gain a little insight. If nothing else, maybe we could learn where Scott Lang and Clint Barton (Hawkeye) were that whole time.
Unfortunately, while some questions may have been answered, there are quite a few glaring omissions. Due to the madness associated with the Quantum Realm, it's hard to take any developments at face value. From Janet's powers to Sonny Burch's employers, there are several unanswered questions that stumped audiences.

What Are Janet's New Quantum Powers?Photo: Marvel Studios
After 30 years of floating around in the Quantum Realm, Janet's biological makeup has changed. Clearly, she's aged three decades or so, but on top of that, she's gained some new super powers. What's never really made clear, however, is what those powers are.
At one point she appears to heal Ghost of her Quantum sickness, but Janet doesn't entirely heal her all the way. Audiences are also expected to assume Janet has other powers, but we never see anything besides the healing. On top of all that, Janet dissipates before revealing her true gifts, so it's fair to wonder if we'll ever learn.Does the audience deserve to know this?

Are Scott And Janet Still Connected?
Due to strange science, Scott and Janet experience some quantum entanglement. At one point, this allows Janet to fully take over Scott's mind and body to help her husband locate her in the Quantum Realm.
Even though she disappeared at the end of Ant-Man, could the link between them still exist? After all, she may merely be in the Soul World, and either way, could a piece of her still be living inside the Quantum Realm? Could that somehow be Scott's ticket out, or the Avengers' ticket into the Soul World?Does the audience deserve to know this?

Where In The World Is Hawkeye?
Hawkeye was not only absent in Infinity War, but he also misses out on Ant-Man and the Wasp. Many speculated that Hawkeye might be in the second Ant-Man film, much like Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok. As it turns out, he was doing something else entirely.
There's only one film left before Avengers 4, and that one's reportedly set in the 1990s. So chances are pretty good Hawkeye won't be seen again onscreen in any meaningful way until Avengers 4. He better have a good excuse for letting half of his friends (and the universe) die.Does the audience deserve to know this?

What Is A Time Vortex?Photo: Marvel Studios
Before Scott leaps into the Quantum Tunnel, Janet tells him to avoid "time vortexes." In her defense they sound like something to avoid, but what exactly is a time vortex, anyway? If someone gets trapped in one, do they go back in time or to the future? Now that Scott is stuck in the Quantum Realm alone, what are his chances of avoiding those vortexes?
Most important of all, does a time vortex explain why some potentially spoilery spy photos from the Avengers 4 set hint at a return to territory familiar from the first Avengers?Does the audience deserve to know this?
