Although we’ve had nothing in the way of official plot details for Avengers 4, the prevailing fan theory for the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up is that we’ll see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes embarking on a journey through time in an effort to undo the events of ‘The Snappening’.
Key to this theory, particularly in the wake of Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is that the Quantum Realm will play a key role in enabling our heroes to travel through time (see Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet Van Dyne making a point of telling Scott Lang to watch out for time vortexes during his time in the alternate dimension).
Well, it seems that Ant-Man star Michael Douglas has all but confirmed this now during an appearance on On Air with Ryan Seacrest; asked how Ant-Man and the Wasp might impact to the future of the MCU, Douglas responded:
“I mean, the Quantum Realm, that’s the key. That’s the key. The Quantum Realm plays an important part in all the next chapters, I think, of the Marvel films.”
At this point, there’s been so much evidence to corroborate the time travel theory that it would be a huge surprise if Avengers 4 goes in a different direction. Hopefully with the marketing campaign due to get underway soon, we won’t have too much longer to wait until we start getting some official info on the film.
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.
