Some believe it could have been better for the film to end with Ant-Man and the Wasp stuck in the quantum realm. However, many also believe it may have led to a repetition of Scott Lang’s story. During the post-credit scene of the 2018 Ant-Man sequel, Scott Lang gets stuck in the subatomic dimension before returning in Endgame.

It is claimed that the leaving Ant-Man and the Wasp stuck in the quantum realm would have repeated the same events. The superheroes are also expected to join forces against Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Avengers films. And with the potential Ant-Man 4 not having the possibility to release before The Kang Dynasty, it would not have been possible.
