Every person on the planet who has seen the last scene of Avengers: Infinity War with some major superheroes turning into dust after that legendary snap from Thanos is a sight which no viewer will forget until their death. Because watching their superheroes who has beaten some of the most ridiculously powerful villains turning into dust just because of a ‘Snap’, is not a pretty sight. Obviously, that wasn’t a simple snap but a snap with a power of destroying the whole universe but still, the love fans possess for their superheroes is remarkable.
But, Marvel is teasing their fans and at the same time realizing them that with each day passing they’re getting closer and closer to the Avengers 4. Yesterday, Marvel released a video with glimpses of the great movie Ant-Man and the Wasp as they announced the digital and the Blu-ray release dates of the movie.
In the video they released, you’ll find that in the end, the physical copies of the movies fade away into dust like the superheroes did in the Avengers: Infinity War and the fans are now in a moment of silence with all those memories of their favorite superhero turning into dust.
This makes us jump into the question that why Infinity War movie Directors Anthony and Joe Russo didn’t end the movie with the snap and why they showed the fall of superheroes in the most unbearable of manners. On which Co-Director Joe Russo told ComicBook.com,
“It was always a plan to show beyond that because when we made the decision to have the snaps themselves, that’s a plot trick to cut to black after an incident like that happens. It doesn’t give you any emotional resonance or catharsis. What he said thinking about it realistically; the true heartbreak doesn’t lie in the fact that he snapped his fingers, it lies in the fact that people have to watch the loved ones, and we have to watch characters that we care about die. And that’s where the real heartbreak lies for the characters who live in the universe and for those of us watching the movie.”
Many Marvel fans were in tears while watching that scene but also heaped their praise on the brilliant piece of work from the directors of the movie. Ant-Man and Wasp has been a great success and regarded by some better than the first one because of Peyton Reed’s direction which made critics praising the movie for its levity, humor, and performances of the characters, particularly those of Rudd and Lilly. But, the movie has also opened many fan theories and hinted strongly towards Ant-Man’s important role in the upcoming Avengers 4.
Many fan theories seem logical because Quantum Realm is also a way to travel back in time with some suggesting Scott Lang using the Quantum Realm with Iron Man to play an important role in the fall of Thanos.
Also, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed suggested that fans surely can expect something big from Ant-Man in next year’s Avengers 4 as he stated,
“Based on the science we’ve set-up in the first movie and this one, I won’t rule out the possibility,” the director told to the Huffington Post. “Because again we are dealing with a time vortex. That could happen.”
So, with some hints from Reed and also the use of time vortex in the Ant-Man movies we can surely make something from the broken pieces of the puzzle. But, if the fan theories are right and we will see Iron Man and Ant-Man working together in a mission to dismantle the Mad-Titan Thanos then it will be a great scene to watch the power of two great suits together.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is going to release on Digital HD and 4K Ultra HD on Oct. 2nd and for the lovers of Blu-ray, it will release on Oct. 16th. But, Avengers: Infinity War is now available on home media.
Also, three movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are on the line with Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019; the most awaited movie of the world Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019; and our friendly neighborhood will knock our doors on July 15th, 2019.
So, what do you think about Marvel’s usage of that infamous dusting at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp ad?
