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.

    Is That Quantum Tunnel Still Open?

    Half of the universe's population may be destroyed, but as far as we can tell, everything else is still around. That includes a massive ant that crushes on electronic drums. Does that mean the Quantum Tunnel is still up and running? On that note, did Cassie survive the snap? Could she find her way into the tunnel somehow? Is that how she eventaully becomes Stature?

    How Does The End Tie Into 'Infinity War'?

    Obviously, the mid-credits sequence in Ant-Man shows that even the Ant-Man team was affected by Thanos's snap. This puts the film on pretty much the exact same timeline as Infinity War. But beyond that, how exactly do the films tie in? Will the Quantum Realm allow for time travel or hopping between alternate dimensions? There's very little we know about how these two films tie together other than the "deaths" of Janet, Hank, and Hope.

    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?

    What Is A Time Vortex?

    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?
