Avengers: Infinity War, of course, ends with Thanos collecting all of the Infinity Stones and initiating the Snap - turning half of humanity to dust. But based on this opening night take, it looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp is going to beat that number.
Wired has linked up with the cast of Marvel's latest hyped movie, Ant-Man and The Wasp, to answer the internet's most-searched questions surrounding the movie. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission.More news: Rock-solid Brazil living up to billing as World Cup favourites
Naturally, this is a pretty major revelation - one that has huge repercussions for Avengers 4 and beyond - so you would think that Marvel wouldn't want to risk the chance that moviegoers might leave before seeing that devastating kicker and then show up to Avengers 4 expecting to see Hope playing a major role alongside Scott. At one point, Scott hears silence from his allies, leaving him trapped in the Quantum Realm. This is probably significant for Avengers 4.

While any temporal journeying could be the result of the Time Stone now in possession of Thanos, it could also come from Ant-Man's inter-dimensional travels in the Quantum Realm that leads into a time vortex. This has led fans to speculate that the fourth Avengers movie will have some sort of time travel or alternate reality involved, which is where the Quantum Realm comes in. It has drawn comparisons to the Dark Dimension seen in Doctor Strange as separate realms in the Multiverse, different chapters of the same book. But the fact that such an obscure character can carry a franchise is proof that Marvel can ensnare viewers with even its most peripheral characters.
