Ant-Man 3 Ending Suggests a Distorted Timeline 

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania successfully introduced fans to Kang the Conqueror, one of the most powerful supervillains in the Marvel Universe. His ability to travel through time and conquer different eras is what makes him the most formidable force to tackle. But certainly, introducing a character who can play with timelines is not an easy task for MCU.

Perhaps, it is one of the reasons why the climactic moments from Ant-Man 3 felt so suspicious. Or could it be Marvel’s way of suggesting something far more grave than it appears? There’s no doubt that fans found the ending sequence of Ant-Man 3 quite curious, which forced them to scratch their heads and think deeper. And certainly, a few intriguing details emerged in the movie that suggested a far more complex scheme.

Followed by time jumps and traveling through the quantum realm, although Scott Lang triumphed over Kang, fans felt the climax scene appeared more like a simulated reality or a distorted timeline created by the Kang Dynasty. Considering Scott and Hope’s easy escape from the quantum realm, fans wondered if Kang manipulated time and space which allowed them to escape without any trouble.

Fans Theory Confirms Kang’s Rule Over Earth 

Fans were left to speculate if it was all Kang’s plan, after witnessing the world around Scott going through some inexplicable changes. Fans wondered if it was actually the reality or a tampered timeline. Even more Scott’s sense of unease and paranoia followed by his questions about the reality of his recent victory over Kang made fans come up with their devastating theories.

The ambiguous nature of the ending in Ant-Man 3, made fans wonder about the true reality of the unfolding events. Looking for clues, fans came up with the only explanation that confirms the devastating truth about Kang’s victory over Earth’s timeline. 

The last time Scott Lang went into the quantum realm he was there for 5 years (for him 5 minutes), allowing the MCU to jump from Infinity War to Endgame w no problem. I believe Ant-Man 3 will directly lead into Avengers: Kang Dynasty so for that to happen, the real world has to continue on.” a Reddit user pointed out.

Kang might have conquered Earth’s timeline while Scott was in the quantum realm

Discussing the time jumps that happen every time Scott Lang enters the quantum realm, the user discussed how Kang’s victory over Earth’s timeline could be the only answer to why the ending scene of Ant-Man 3 was rather suspicious. It could mean that Kang has already conquered this timeline while Scott was trapped in the Quantum realm, and then what we saw is actually a conquered earth from Avengers 5: The Kang Dynasty. 


Maybe it’s even possible that Kang gets out of the quantum realm before the Ant family and that 10-second head start could be all the time he needs to conquer Earth.” 

This devastating theory seems to be the only confirmation as to why the Ant-Man 3 ending seemed so suspicious. And if this happens, the entire timeline and the upcoming movies in the MCU might end up showing a created reality by the Kang Dynasty.
