Evangeline Lilly Confirms A Key Edit To The Ant-Man And The Wasp End-Credits Scene

By now, we know that the end-credits scene of Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp occurs during the “Snappening” of Avengers: Infinity War. But Evangeline Lilly just elaborated on a key bit of the scene that was cut because it changed the tone dramatically, explaining:

Evangeline Lilly, who plays new Wasp Hope van Dyne in the Ant-Man movies, has been making the press rounds in support of the movie’s DVD and Blu-ray release. And she mentioned how she didn’t know that she was going to get dusted — alongside Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer — in the mid-credits sequence of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

So, the way she tells it to CBR, they probably filmed their reaction to the dusting in different ways. And they hadn’t yet seen Avengers: Infinity War. So they didn’t know that the dusting was tragic. And that meant their reactions had to be cut out of this pivotal scene. As Lilly elaborates:

So, they winged it. And they probably got it wrong. And therefor, their reaction scenes were trimmed.

Ultimately, it’s fine. The point of the scene is to get Paul Rudd’s character, Scott Lang, into the Quantum Realm at the end of the movie. We think this will be very important to Avengers 4, because Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) explains to Scott about time vortexes, saying they are bad. But really, we think they will be key to reversing what Thanos (Josh Brolin) pulled off in Avengers: Infinity War.
