    Ant-Man Finally Acknowledged That He Didn't Kill Thanos By Crawling Up His Butt And Started To Explain Why

    "It's much more complicated than that..."

    When Avengers: Endgame first came out, fans had a quick and easy way to take care of Thanos for good.

    With the help of Pym technology, it would've been simple: Ant-Man shrinks down to the size of, well, an ant; crawls into Thanos's pants, into Thanos's butthole; and then expands.

    That blows Thanos up from the inside and saves the universe...right?

    It would have saved all of the Avengers a headache and, TBH, probably Tony Stark's life.

    BUT HE DIDN'T DO SO. You'd think such a simple plan would be Plan A, right????

    Now, Ant-Man has finally addressed this theory and his reasoning in Avengers: Quantum Encounter, the new Marvel dinner show that takes place at Worlds of Marvel on Disney Cruise Line's newest ship, the Disney Wish.

    Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne are on board to showcase some new quantum tech and are therefore your hosts for the dinner show.

    During introductions, Scott decides to talk about it.

    He then proceeds to start what I assume would be the most interesting TED talk ever.

    AND HOPE INTERRUPTS HIM.

    Now, listen, I was thinking, Is it worth devoting an entire article to these two sentences? My answer was "yes," because this means an IRL Marvel meme crossed over into the MCU.

    We need more of this very important Marvel discourse to take off online so the characters have no choice but to acknowledge it.

    I write that, even though (I'm saying it) the plan wasn't that great to begin with. Ant-Man would've had to get through a heavy-duty belt and some tight pants without Thanos noticing.

    The better bet, IMO, would've been the ear. Go through the ear and expand in the brain. I mean, Thanos says himself to go for the head.

    Maybe now Scott recognizes that, even though he's a superhero, he still has room for growth (*ba dum tiss*). Avengers: Quantum Encounter can be experienced at Worlds of Marvel, a dinner show on Disney's newest ship, the Disney Wish. The ship is starting cruises on July 14!
