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.
How Did Janet Survive The Quantum Realm?
When Hank finds Janet inside the Quantum Realm, she makes it clear that the strange place changed her in some way. And indeed, once she returns to the normal world, she apparently has some strange healing power that she uses on Ghost.
But that still doesn't explain what she ate and drank for the last thirty years. She still appears to have aged naturally, and it doesn't exactly look like there's a ton of food or water floating around in the space between atoms. The movie gives the impression that they can never take their helmet off even if they could find food. What did Janet do to survive, and will Scott do something similar now that he's trapped?
How Will Scott Escape The Quantum Realm?
Even without an announcement about a third Ant-Man film, it's safe to assume Scott won't simply die in the Quantum Realm. After all, what's the point of keeping him alive at the end of the film, just to kill his character offscreen later? We can assume he'll escape, but how? Janet couldn't do it after 30 years of trying, despite gaining new powers. What is it about Scott that puts him ahead of where Janet was? Is it his suit? Could it be tied into Captain Marvel?
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.
What Are Janet's New Quantum Powers?
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.
